Fox Sports reaches agreement with Westminster Kennel Club to bring annual dog show to Fox Sports 1 and National Geographic Wild

Annually one of the most highly anticipated events for dog lovers across the country, the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show has a new television home, as Fox Sports and the Westminster Kennel Club have reached a 10-year worldwide, multi-platform rights agreement to bring the Westminster Kennel Club’s conformation show to Fox Sports 1 and National Geographic Wild beginning in 2017. 

Beginning in 2017, the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show will air in primetime on Fox Sports 1 live from New York City’s Madison Square Garden as the seven “best in group” selections are made on Monday and Tuesday night, leading up to Tuesday night’s “best in show” announcement. National Geographic Wild and Fox Sports digital platforms will provide additional coverage, carrying daytime breed judging from Piers 92 and 94 in New York, and National Geographic Wild also will offer encore airings of each night’s programs.

The agreement also results in Fox Sports 1 remaining home to the Masters Agility Championship at Westminster, with encores on National Geographic Wild.
