12. CANINE CATEGORIES
If you are new to the Westminster Dog Show, then you may be confused about the different awards that are given out. Isn't there only a Best in Show? Au contraire! While Best in Show is the biggest award of the evening, each dog group has one winner. In total, there are seven different dog groups. They include: Sporting, Hound, Working, Terrier, Toy, Non-Sporting and Herding.
