hi I’m Gail Miller be sure the voice of the Westminster Kennel Club I grew up in the sport of dogs as a breeder owner handler and I’m also an AKC licensed judge and this is every single breed of dog sporting there are 31 breeds in the Sporting Group comprised of dogs they were bred to work with man the first subgroup is the German Shorthaired Pointer and the German Wirehaired Pointer main difference would be having that wiry coat so that the dog’s skin doesn’t get ripped if it’s in very thick brush these are tireless hunters that are known for being able to work all day long give me wonderful pets but they need lots of exercise here we have the retrievers there’s the Chesapeake Bay Retriever the curly coated retriever the flat coat retriever the golden retriever the Labrador Retriever and of course the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever the Chesapeake Bay Retriever is known to have an oily feel to its coat and that’s to help make it water repellent in those cold waters the curly coda Retriever is what’s called a silhouette breed they have a very unique outline the flat-coated retriever all in black is always wagging its tail the golden retriever of course has been a long family favorite in the United States one of the top American Kennel Club registered breeds every year the Labrador Retriever is used in many different capacities aside from being a hunting dog they can be drug sniffing dogs they’re lovable easygoing temperament makes them versatile and able to do many jobs the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever is a little smaller than the other retrievers and he has a very unique style here we have the English Setter the Gordon setter Irish setter and the Irish Red and White setter the Gordon Center is a little heavier bone that’s important note because they actually were sitting in Scotland where it was a rougher terrain than where the other centers were the English Center is one of the earliest breeds shown in Westminster the Irish Red and White Center is actually a very old breed but was only eligible to show at Westminster in 2010 this subgroup is the cocker spaniels beginning with the English cocker spaniel and then the ascom cocker which stands for any solid color other than black and then the black cocker spaniel and the party color cocker spaniel now the English cocker spaniel is the original and the other three are the American version the English cocker spaniel is true to my heart I actually have one at home I have an orange and white and I love this breed they’re known as being Mary that’s one of the main characteristics is their tail never stops wagging then you have the American caucus as we call them now these have a different head shape they have a shorter smaller head they have a shorter muzzle they’re smaller at the withers then the English cocker spaniel and in the show ring you’ll see them with a much more perfuse coat so the difference between the asked Cobb cocker the black cocker and the party color cocker is really just the coat color any solid color other than black means it’s either all buff or it’s all of one of the accepted colors without any white then you have the all black clearly and then the party colour is many colours put on the dog here we have the English Springer Spaniel and the welsh springer spaniel but you’ll notice they have very different features and that part of it is just the ear length the length of body the height of body but they’re both fun-loving great sporting dogs that are fun to go work with and can work all day in the 1970s there was an English Springer Spaniel who won Best in Show Westminster two times the Welsh Springer is a sweet outgoing breed that has that beautiful red and white coat that is very protective when they’re hunting here we have the Clumber spaniel in the Sussex spaniel and the only reason they’re put together is because they’re both heavier bone lower to the ground they were a slow-moving hunting dog they weren’t built for speed they’re built for endurance they’re built for long distance but not fast the Clumber spaniel has won best of show Westminster in 2009 a Sussex spaniel won best of show at Westminster and holds the record for being the oldest dog to ever win vessel show he was 10 years old here we have the Weimaraner the Vizsla and the wire hair fish love these are German and Hungarian breeds that have been developed over centuries they are very sleek in their appearance they’re very athletic they need lots of room and lots of exercise the Vizsla is a rust color breed they’re known for being very close to their family and not wanting to be separated from their family very trainable and very fun-loving the wire haired Vizsla as the name says has a little different coat they’re a little more rough looking little rugged looking that coat is really just to protect them when they’re hunting and of course the wine runner is known as the Gray Ghost they’re very athletic strong they needs a lot of exercise and care the Boykin Spaniel is one of the few breeds that has webbed feet so that it can swim better and work in wet terrain the spaniels that became very popular in the UK originally came from Spain and the field spaniel is one of those they’re a little larger than the English cocker and they’re definitely larger than American cocker spaniel but they’re a very old breed the Brittany from France from the region of Brittany is still used today in hunting scenarios and competitions hunters love this breed because of their energy and the fact that they’re so versatile and they’re hunting styles they’re very alert and they like to go go go the Irish Water Spaniel is a large spaniel that actually has a rat tail single coat similar to a poodles coat beautiful brown coloring and they make an Sep tional hunter the lagotto romagnolo recently joined the westminster ring in 2016 this breed is known as the truffle hunter and they’re a great family pet the Netherlands Quaker honja is a beautiful red and white medium-sized dog that is a true hunter even though they look like just a cute fun dog they really are an independent thinker and they love to hunt it’s important to people know just because they look to you doesn’t mean that they aren’t serious about their jobs the pointer which is the emblem of the Westminster Kennel Club is one of the original breeds entered at the Westminster Show in 1877 in 1877 when the Westminster Kennel Club was formed they imported pointers from England to help strengthen the breeding stock of Westminster cow there was a dog brought over named sensation who then went on to become the emblem of the Westminster Kennel Club and that dog is still used in all of our logos and catalogues and everything we use today the pointer is a very strong part of our history thus Pannonia Italiano is a very laid-back easygoing dog they’re supposed to be ungroomed unpolished in the ring they’re naturally shown and so sometimes that can mean a wet beard sometimes that can mean that their hair just looks like they woke up and just got out of bed but that’s what we love about the spinelli aside from their wonderful temperaments the wire-haired point in Griffon is known for that tousle look of his furnishings it’s a very serious hunter but if you want that scruffy looking face you can get that – Terrier there are 31 breeds in the terrier group made up of primarily ratters that came from England Terra means ground and these dogs often went underground and would go under after badger vermin they have to be very bold and feisty and that’s what you’ll find the terrier group here we have the bare Dale Terrier the carry blue and the Irish Terrier now oftentimes these dogs serve multi purposes meaning that they were used for ratting of course of being vermin control but also the larger dogs like the Airedale were used for all round farm purposes there were Airedales that were used in world war ii as messenger dogs they’re very smart and trainable dog Kerry blue Terrier has a single coat it’s good for people who might have allergies Irish Terrier is very plucky they’re tall they have the great deer carrot and some people thought that tramp and lady in the trap was may be related to an Irish Terrier the next subgroup is the American Staffordshire Terrier and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier they’re very athletic they’re very strong aside from their athleticism is that they’re very focused here we have the colored bull terrier the white bull terrier and the miniature bull terrier now really the only difference is the markings of the white and the color bull terrier the miniature bull terrier clearly is a smaller version but all of them are comical they’re known for their zest for life and the white bull terrier of course became famous when Patton had one here we have the Smooth Fox Terrier and the Wire Fox Terrier now they are a little different in their head shape and in their bodies obviously the coats different but the Wire Fox Terrier has one bestest show Westminster 15 x the next subgroup is the Norfolk and Norwich Terrier now these breed used to be a single breed and then broke off because the difference is in the ears one way to remember Noah folk versus Norwich is the W the dog with the ears up looks like a W and that’s a witch so that’s the Norwich here we have the Russell Terrier and the parson Russell terrier and the main difference in these two dogs is the parson is a little taller on leg a little less bone whereas the Russell Terrier is a little lower to the ground and a little more bone tool here we have the Lakeland Terrier and the Welsh Terrier and although these dogs have a very similar outline when they’re in the ring being judged against each other is the judge is looking at the differences in the head they have a different head shape and that’s characteristic of the breed here we have the Scottish Terrier the west highland white terrier and the see Liam terrier the Scottie and Westie are often depicted together in advertising and different things like that that stark difference between the black and white but they’re very different dogs all of them had that Terrier feistiness about them the Scottie of course has a much longer head their classic black with the ears that are upright the Westie has more fringe around the face and is a fun-loving white Terrier and then the see liam is a little thicker they’re a little harder in their body their ears are flopped down but all three of them were originally bred to do the same thing which is vermin control the American hairless Terrier was recognized by the AKC in 2016 and debuted at Westminster in 2017 the Australian Terrier is a little longer and back they had that coarse coat and upright ears the Bedlington Terrier this is the breed that looks like it’s a baby lamb but it really isn’t this dog is a serious terrier and a serious hunter the border terrier is

bred to be companions the first subgroup is the Affenpinscher and the Brussels griffons both of them have kind of that round face with a moustache and they both have lots of zest for life the second subgroup is Chihuahuas there’s the smooth-coated and the long-haired and of course everybody knows that they think they’re a big dog when they’re really not here we have the english toy spaniels in the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel these were all lap dogs of the royalty English toy spaniels come in the Blenheim and King Charles which is the red and white and then there’s also the King Charles and Ruby where they’re black and tan or all red the difference between the Cavalier King Charles and the English toys the primarily is in the head and body length the head shape of the Cavalier King Charles is a longer muzzle and different shaped head here we have the silkie terrior the Yorkshire Terrier and the Maltese now people sometimes get the silky Terrier and the Yorkshire Terrier mixed up because they are similar in colouring in that they have to tan with the bluish gray and they have a long coat but the Yorkshire terrier is a much smaller head its ears are a different positioning it’s a much shorter back than the silky terrier so there are differences then there’s also the Maltese which is a small heavily coated dog as well but of course that one’s all white here we have the Chinese Crested and the Pekinese both breeds are from China but the Chinese Crested was used as a ratter on ships sometimes was passed from sailor to sailor because of how good they were at Bourbon

breed the miniature pinscher is a lot of dog in a small package they are fearless and they have a very unique gait it’s like the Papillon is called such because of their ears Papillon and French means
