The Westminster Kennel Club

Location:   Manhattan
Year:   Early 1876

The Westminster Kennel Club, America's premier forum for Show Dogs, is founded by a group of sporting young swells gathered together and talking about their favorite dogs over drinks. They name their group "Westminster" after their favorite New York hotel;  but the first organized dog show of the WKC is held in Philadelphia in July as part of the nation's Centennial celebration.
