Westminster 2018 – when and how to watch

Westminster Kennel Club – America’s most prestigious dog show – runs from Saturday 10 to Tuesday 13 February 2018.

Full details of US and Canadian TV coverage can be found here. Outside of North America, there are a couple of options:

  1. You should be able to stream ringside video live via westminsterkennelclub.org. A full schedule of events, including breed specific ring details, can be found here. Bear in mind that New York (EST) is 5 hours behind the UK (GMT) so our 1pm is their 8am.

    • The Agility Championships are on Saturday
    • The Obedience Championships are on Monday
    • The Junior Showmanship Finals are on Tuesday
    • The Hound, Toy, Non-Sporting, and Herding groups will be judged on Monday
    • The Sporting, Working, and Terrier groups, and Best In Show, will be judged on Tuesday. The evening coverage runs from 8 to 11 pm (EST).
  2.  Videos will be added to the official website and the YouTube channel shortly after the events (a good option for those of us who can’t stay up until 4am!)
  3. The Road to Westminster, a TV special, will air on Nat Geo WILD on Sunday; NOW TV users may be able to view this after the fact – we’ll keep you posted!

Of course, you can follow the WKC and Dogs In The News social media accounts for updates too. We’ll always use the hashtag #WKCDogShow on Twitter so you can find our posts easily.
