The Westminster Kennel Club is holding its all-breed dog show for this first time at the piers of Manhattan's West Side Monday.
The 137th annual competition kicks off Monday morning at Piers 92/94, a venue that allows for more room for dogs, vendors and spectators.
More than 3,000 dogs coming from 187 different breeds will participate.
Hound, toy, non-sporting and herding breeds will be judged between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday.
Sporting, working and terrier breeds will take the floor Tuesday, followed by the Best in Show judgment.
