It's the second longest held sporting event in the USA (right behind the Kentucky Derby) and soon it will be on DVD. "The 131st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show: Special Collector's Edition" will arrive on May 15th, distributed by New Video Group (which, I guess, answers the question: "Who let the dogs out?").
The most celebrated show-dogs gather each year in Madison Square Garden in New York City to compete in a test of breeding and training known as "The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show."
This is the world’s most prestigious dog show - back for its 131st year - and this new 2-Disc set will have you hitting the "paws" button on your remote so you can catch every moment of the fierce and furry competition.
Over 2,500 American Kennel Club Champions of Record, representing 165 breeds and varieties, gather once again to compete for the coveted title of “Best in Show.”
Anticipation heightens as the field is narrowed to seven select champions and eventually reaches a dramatic climax when one dog is awarded the world's most coveted canine prize: Best in Show, Westminster.
In addition to four full hours of judging, the DVD will feature never-before-seen extras that include behind the scenes featurettes, commentary and an interview with respected dog aficionado David Frei (who provides analysis during the competition, along with newscaster Lester Holt) and media tour footage.
The Suggested Retail Price will be $29.95, although we think you'll be able to pick up that doggie in the window for less than twenty-three bucks.
