2013 Westminster: No CH required

For the first time, Westminster has loosened its entry rules. In prior years, every dog had to have been designated as a Champion before being allowed to enter.

This year, you’ll notice some of the dogs don’t carry this moniker. As long as a dog has won at least one major competition, he or she is allowed to enter. These are called “class dogs”. This new rule allows younger dogs to enter the competition, presumably giving their owners more time to use the dog in breeding after a successful show.

Although the vast majority of entrants have earned at least Champion status, if not Grand Champion, a few of the class dogs won their breed competition today:

Kerryarc Favorite Sin
Breed: Irish Wolfhound

Stackem Up My Way Or Highway
Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound

Barbu Jenarae Ruffian
Breed: Bouvier des Flandres

Bugaboo’s Picture Perfect
Breed: Old English Sheepdog

Katbird’s Evolution Matters At Kayas
Breed: Boston Terrier

Paceaway Play It Again
Breed: Lowchen

Hammarhojdens Ultra
Breed: Norwegian Lundehund

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
