The COVID-19 pandemic has derailed another major sporting event – and this one’s for the dogs.
The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show has been postponed due to rising COVID cases, and will be held later this year.
The annual show is typically held at Madison Square Garden, but last year was moved to the Lyndhurst mansion and held without spectators. The show had been scheduled for Jan. 24-26.
A new date has not yet been announced.
and the disruptions it is currently creating in travel and event management, the Board of Governors of the Westminster Kennel Club has made the difficult decision to postpone our January 2022 show until a later date in 2022.— Westminster Dog Show (@WKCDOGS) December 29, 2021
