The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show launched two new breeds on Thursday that will compete in this year’s competition. The Mudi, a medium-sized Hungarian farm dog originally bred to herd sheep and cattle, has just joined the Herding Group’s judging category. The Russian toy will join the judging category of the toy group. This year, organizers will once again host the show at the Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, New York, instead of its traditional home in Madison Square Garden in Manhattan. Club officials say the larger hall in Tarrytown means more dogs will be competing this year, 3,200 – the most since the 1970s. Last year, 2,500 dogs competed. More than 200 breeds will take part in the televised contest which begins on Saturday and ends on Wednesday when judges determine which dog is “best in show”.
