Westminster Dog Show 2022: Tuesday’s Highlights and Winners

IN Dog show at Westminster Kennel Club 2022 was in full swing on Tuesday with the first round of the group judging, and four of the seven finalists vying for Best in Show retained their seats.

The America’s Dog Show kicks off at Lyndhurst Estate in Taritown, New York on Saturday, as the Bee Shetland Sheepdog won its long-awaited 9th annual Agility Master Championship.

The competition continued on Monday with Masters Obience Championship – a team competition open to both purebred and all American (mixed breeds) dogs – where Australian Shepherd Willie won the 2022 WKC Masters Obedience title.

The competitions on dexterity and obedience in books led to the first night of the group judging. The judge for breeds in the groups for greyhounds, toys, non-sports and shepherd groups ended on Tuesday afternoon and the best dogs competed against other breeds in their group to qualify for the Best in Show jury on Wednesday.

Hound was the largest of the four groups rated on Tuesday, followed by Herding, Toy and Non-Sporting.

The first winner on Tuesday was Bloodhound Trumpet for Hound Group.

Bloodhounds are independent, curious and friendly large-smelling greyhounds, originally bred to hunt deer and wild boar. Borzoi, Norwegian Elkhound and Harrier rounded out the first four places for greyhounds.
