The American Kennel Club categorizes every breed into seven groups sporting, hound, working, terrier, toy, non-sporting and herding. At the group level, dogs are not judged against each other, but rather against how well they fit their breed standards. This year, the Azawakh will make its National Dog Show debut.

Pina is one of the most advanced educators in our field. Every time I see her work on a dog, I learn something. These lessons were no different. What I especially love about Pina is that she has the inside scoop. The art of pet styling is sculpting fur. With every L2GD film shoot, I take detailed notes. With Pina, I find it challenging to keep up. My fingers never stop on my keyboard as I watch her work.
Judges also look at the dog's coat, colors, eye color and shape, ear shape and placement, feet, tail, and other factors. As we work to bring dog lovers the same premier dog show they look forward to each year, planning decisions will be made in accordance with local and state public health guidelines. The evening sessions will take place at Madison Square Garden form 7 p.
The dogs competing are sorted into groups based on its breed. The dog deemed to best exemplify that standard is declared the—wait for it—Best of Breed, and then goes on to compete in Group competitions. The winner of each Group competition goes on to compete for the Best in Show title.
