A Scottish Deerhound named Foxcliffe Hickory Wind receives a kiss from show judge Paolo Dondina after winning Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on February 15, 2011 in New York City. The show, one of the most prestigious dog shows in the world, is being held at Madison Square Garden in New York City on February 14-15. Over 2,000 dogs competed in this year's show which also included six new breeds to the competition.It takes a lot of people power to run a big event like the Great Smoky Mountain Weekend. 


We offer on-the spot orientation and training, so come help out even if you are new to dog shows.


It is a lot of fun, and you get an "up-close-and-personal" view of the action.
