Details of Westminster Kennel and the Ticket Luck value
The Westminster Kennel club dog show is an amazing event that features thousands of dogs, competing against each other for a number of prizes. It is easily the oldest dog show in the US, with the first ever event held in 1877. It takes place at New York City’s most famous venue, MSG. For dog lovers, this is an event to attend after buying Westminster Kennel tickets for a look at the finest breeds in New York City, the US and the world for around two thousand five hundred dogs participate.
In 2011, the Westminster Kennel club dog show held its one hundred and thirty fifth dog show, featuring two thousand five hundred dogs from nearly one hundred and eighty breeds. It marks over a century of dog shows, with the first ever taking place in 1877. Today, it is the second longest held sporting event in the US, surpassed only by the Kentucky Derby, which has been held since 1875. It was first started as a show for gun dogs, particularly pointers and setters, by a group of hunters who used to meet at Manhattan’s Westminster Hotel located at the intersection of Irving Place and Sixteenth Street.
This first dog show was held at the Gilmore’s Gardens, known today as the Hippodrome, and attracted nearly twelve hundred dogs. A massive success, it was extended to four days from the original five and income from the show was donated to the ASPCA, which was even then working towards a home for disabled and stray dogs. Since then, the Westminster Kennel club dog show has evolved into something bigger, which thousands attend each year by buying cheap Westminster Kennel tickets.
The Westminster Kennel is thus America’s oldest dog show and second oldest sports events. It is also the largest such event, in which breeds are judged by a number of standards and then awarded prizes. Such standards include color, eye shape, tail carriage, companionship, ability to perform the job it has been bred for, physical makeup and much more. Entry in the show is limited to two thousand five hundred due to space, and this is often booked rapidly on the very first day the show starts accepting entries. Additionally, the top five dogs within each breed are entered automatically into the contest.
Today, the Westminster Kennel club dog show is held for two days and nights. Dogs compete against each other in the same breed, with the Best of Breed emerging. This breed then goes on to its group, based on what it has been bred for with categories such as Sporting, Working, Hound, Terrier, Non-Sporting, Toy, and Herding. Winners of the group competition, seven of them, then go to finals, where judges select the best breed overall.
The show is also aired live on TV each year, often being one of the most popular programs at the time. It is also globally famous, with seven hundred members of the press attending from twenty countries. The show’s website alone attracts nearly twelve million visitors each year. Cheap Westminster Kennel tickets are often sold out as soon as they are announced for sale, thus, dog lovers are advised to grab them as soon as possible, to avoid missing this phenomenal event.
