‘Meet the Breeds’, Dogs and Humans Dress Up in Coordinating Outfits at the Westminster Dog Show in New York City

During this year’s Westminster Dog Show, which took place at Pier 92 in New York City, the Westminster Kennel Club in partnership with the American Kennel Club organized the “Meet the Breeds” event, an event in which the dogs representing different breeds and their humans made themselves available to attendees. Many of the participants dressed up in adorable coordinating outfits and costumes that caught a lot of attention.

From Akitas to Xoloitzcuintlis, the sixth annual AKC Meet the Breeds will for the first time partner the Westminster Kennel Club! This year’s event will continue to offer dog lovers the exciting opportunity to meet and play with more than 100 different dog breeds in elaborate booths depicting each breed’s history – see the Mastiff reigning over his medieval castle, or the Cairn Terrier following the Yellow Brick Road in a scene from the Wizard of Oz!
