[2019 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show] Your TV/Online Viewing Guide! [VIDEO]

As part of Bleeding Cool‘s continued mission to plant our flag on every square inceof the pop culture universe — and because we have a righteously unwavering love for dogs — we proudly present our coverage of the 143rd Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. This year’s coverage includes our live-blog of the final 2019 WKC Dog Show Group rounds (Sporting, Working and Terrier Groups) and this year’s “Best in Show” on Tuesday, February 12th, from 7 p.m. – 11 p.m.-ish EST; with the competition airing once again on Fox Sports 1 (FS1).

But until then, we’re going to get you up-to-speed on everything and anything you need to know about the canine competition, from where to watch and how the show works to knowing about the various breeds – heck, you might even get a chance to meet some of our “Bests in Show.”

Our live-blog Going to the Dogs II will cover the final night of competition from New York City’s Madison Square Garden, including the all-important “Best in Show” finale. We’ll be offering some funny and irreverent takes on the internationally-renowned canine “smackdown” from the perspective of someone whose “broad knowledge base” on dogs extends to never feeding them chocolate, knowing that a proper mix of wet and dry food is key, and that a tennis ball is to a dog what a large cardboard box is to an eight-year-old.

So here’s a rundown on when and where you can catch the prime time group competitions on Monday and Tuesday nights; along with some info on who will be working the broadcast for FS1:

Monday, Feb. 11, 2019: 143rd Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show Group Competition will be telecast live on FS1 from 7 p.m. – 11 p.m. EST (Hound, Toy, Non-Sporting, and Herding groups)

Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019: 143rd Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show Group Competition and Best in Show judging will be telecast live on FS1 from 7 p.m. – 11 p.m. EST (Sporting, Working, Terrier groups, followed by “Best in Show”)

●  Westminster Kennel Club’s Gail Miller Bisher and veteran FOX Sports announcer Chris Myers will be providing play-by-play during FS1’s prime-time coverage, alongside veteran judge Don Sturtz.
