Dog Lover Must See TV: Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

It's a dog lover must see TV - the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show will be on Monday and Tuesday, February 11 and 12 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The Group and Best In Show competition will be televised live on USA Network from 8-9 PM and continuing on CNBC from 9-11 PM Monday and live on USA Network from 8-11 PM Tuesday. Competition in each breed and variety may be viewed in streaming video at the Westminster website. This video will be available within two hours of completion of the judging of that breed.

169 breeds and varieties will be judged in seven different groups during the day Monday and Tuesday. There are four new breeds eligible for the first time at Westminster in 2008: the Plott (Hound Group), the Tibetan Mastiff (Working), the Swedish Vallhund (Herding) and the Beauceron (Herding).
