Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

Event Type: Sports

Venue: Madison Square Garden
Address: 4 Pennsylvania Plaza New York City, New York 10001

If there were a word to describe the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, it would be ‘exclusive.’ The same can be said for those who choose private jet services as their mode of luxury air travel to Madison Square Gardens in New York City.

Of the 2,500 purebreds that compete in the two-day event, only one in each category will earn the prestigious honor of a Best in Breed title. Of those champions, only seven will earn coveted Group awards:

  • Sporting
  • Hound
  • Working
  • Terrier
  • Toy
  • Non-sporting
  • Herding

And, of course, there is the Best in Show honor that goes to the overall ‘top dog.’

Both spectators and participants travel from all over the US for Westminster. While some might only have a short haul to reach NYC, others must travel vast distances. This can be stressful on the animals. With so much at stake, some owners choose to use private jet services to transport their pedigree pooches.

Stratos Jets is adept at organizing air travel for people with pets, making special arrangements so that your dog has a comfortable place within the cabin of the private plane.

Event details

Overview: Next to the Kentucky Derby, the Westminster Dog Show is the second-longest continually held sporting event in the US. One of the main purposes of the event is to evaluate prized breeding stock to ensure a high standard is maintained for future generations.
