2014 Westminster Winners
Two people with dog

Excitement was everywhere at the 2014 Westminster Dog Show. Dogs representing dozens of breeds strutted their stuff in the classic confirmation round and the best of the best rose to the top. Adding intrigue to the event was a brand new category: agility. Amazing canine athletes got to show off their ability to see-saw, jump and make their way through weave poles. Extra momentous was the fact that the agility contest gave mixed-breed dogs a chance to compete alongside purebred dogs for the first time ever.

The event was yet another triumph for dogs whose food of choice is Purina® Pro Plan®. The Best in Show winner, Sky, is a Purina Pro Plan-fed dog, as are 6 of the 7 group winners. Congrats to all!
