The event is one of the most highly competitive and exciting events in the canine world. Every year, thousands of the world's top canine competitors from all 50 states and more than 70 countries vie for Best in Show honors.
Each year the show is held in conjunction with the AKC Obedience Classic and AKC Agility Invitational , representing the culmination of a year of competition in three AKC sports: Conformation, Obedience and Agility.
One of the most exciting attractions is the AKC Meet the Breeds with over 150 AKC breeds on display for the public to meet and speak with breed experts. The AKC Demonstration ring features fun, educational and exciting demonstrations such as herding with live ducks, agility, obedience and seeing-eye dogs.
