Winners of Westminster Dog Show 2020
The annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show presents New Yorkers with the opportunity to witness championship-level performances at Madison Square Garden.
The first dog show was held on 8 May 1877, making it the second-longest continuously held sporting event in the US behind only the Kentucky Derby. The annual competition features hundreds of dogs from around the world.
This year, the spotlight was on canines from the hound, toy, non-sporting and herding groups. Here's a look at the top four finishers in each category.
