It's a dog eat dog world, especially on Manhattan's West Side.

The 137th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is underway at Piers 92/94.

It's the first time the show has been held there.

The new venue offers room for more dogs, vendors and spectators.

More than 3,000 dogs from 187 different breeds will participate.

The Hotel Pennsylvania in Midtown has set up its doggie spa so pets and their owners can prepare for the big event.

The hotel is promising "five paw" service for all its guests.

"We actually call this the Green Room Salon Spa Canine Gym and Paw Mall. There's so much going on. We have a mall outside so you can buy things for your dog, we have pilates, we have doggie treadmills, his and her canine loos, bathing tubs and grooming tables," said Jerry Grymek, a doggie concierge.

The Dog Show runs Monday and Tuesday.
