An Incline Village resident will be competing at the 140th Annual Westminster Kennel Club All Breed Dog Show in New York City on Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 15-16, 2016.
Scott and Ashley Menath and “Woodford” will be among more than 3,000 dogs competing in the events of Westminster Week, which includes the iconic all-breed dog show, its 3rd Annual Masters Agility Championship at Westminster and the Inaugural Masters Obedience Championship.
Woodford (CH Horizon’s a Gentleman’s Bet) and his handler/breeder Lisa Tailby will be in the ring together. Lisa is an expert with the American Brittany dog breed, adheres to the most stringent and ethical breeding standards, and is currently working with Woodford hoping to achieve a strong bond prior to entering the ring. Woodford has been lucky enough to compete in AKC conformation and field events for the last 3 years. In a very short amount of time he has has gone “best of breed” in more than 80% of the shows he has entered. He has also received ribbon placements in 90% of the field trials he has been entered in.
Breed competition in Westminster’s world-famous dog show will be held during the day at Piers 92/94. The evening finals (Groups and Best In Show) will be held at Madison Square Garden and televised live from 8-11pm ET on CNBC, Monday, Feb. 15 and on USA Network on Tuesday, Feb. 16.
The dog show is preceded on Saturday, Feb. 13, by the 3rd Annual Masters Agility Championship at Westminster on Pier 94 as part of the “Meet & Compete” event which also includes AKC Meet The Breeds® presented by Purina Pro Plan on Piers 92 and 94 giving Westminster Week a full range of informational and fun dog-related activities.
