Westminster dog show 2019 schedule: Dates, what TV channel, livestream times and best in show | NJ.com

Were you bored by the Rams and the Patriots? If you’d prefer soulful eyes, lustrous coats and an elegant gait, the Super Bowl of the dog world is here — the 2019 Westminster Kennel Club dog show

Whether you just want to tune in to see your own dog’s breed compete or want a play-by-play of all the action, here is our guide to the 143rd Westminster dog show.

The main dog show will air on FS1 (Fox Sports 1) from 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Monday, February 11 and Tuesday, February 12. But some other activities precede the main event — for more on those, see below.

Best in show will be awarded at the end of the competition on Tuesday, February 12. Whichever dog is chosen will have to beat competition from six other groups.

Here’s a brief overview of how that works: the seven Westminster categories are designated by the American Kennel Club’s classification of various breeds into herding, hound, working, sporting, non-sporting, toy and terrier groups. After dogs compete for best of breed on both Monday and Tuesday, the winner of each of those larger groups advances to the Westminster final.
