The Westminster Dog Show is one of the most prestigious dog shows in the world with thousands of dogs competing over the course of a few days. While they may seem to be in perfect condition, the life of a show dog is not always easy. The dogs undergo rigorous training and are bred for specific standards set by the show. They are also subjected to long hours of grooming and travel, which can be stressful for them. On top of that, the competition at Westminster is fierce and the judging can be subjective. Despite the challenges, the dogs and their handlers strive to perform their best.
