The Westminster Kennel Club has announced its upcoming 137th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, America's second-longest, continuously-held sporting event, to be held on February 11-12, 2013 in New York City. In order to accommodate its growing pool of dogs, handlers, vendors and spectators, for the first time in the Show's history, The Westminster Kennel Club will stage this iconic event in two spectacular venues - Madison Square Garden and The Piers (92/94) on Manhattan's West Side at 55th Street.

The increase in space achieved by expanding to The Piers presents spectators with the opportunity to better experience the competing 3,200 dogs of 187 breeds and varieties in a more highly interactive manner. Benching returns every day between 8am to 6pm, empowering dog lovers to meet and visit with a favorite breed or the individual dog they wish, and furthering the Club's legacy of educating the public about purebreds and responsible dog ownership.

Maintaining tradition, Group Finals, Junior Showmanship Finals and Best In Show will take place at Madison Square Garden each evening, with competition beginning at 8pm on Monday and 7:30pm on Tuesday. At Madison Square Garden, benching for each day's breed winners begin at 6pm. Competition will be televised live on CNBC (Monday) and USA Network (Tuesday) beginning at 8pm ET each evening.

For 2013, The Westminster Kennel Club will also enhance its technological offerings, including an exclusive, WKC-branded SmartPhone App that provides event attendees with a digital 2013 Show Guide. And, for the first time, The Westminster Kennel Club will also stream live coverage of the breed judging during the days on its website www.westminsterkennelclub.org, showcasing -- as it unfolds and in its entirety -- the complete judging of all 187 breeds and varieties. Since 2005, judging highlights only had been carried on the website, on a delayed basis.

"The changes in our 137th show will enhance the Westminster experience for dog aficionados and our followers everywhere," said Westminster Kennel Club President Seán McCarthy. "We are more excited than ever to share our show with exhibitors, spectators at the Piers and at the Garden, and people from all over the world who will be watching on television and online."
