The Westminster Kennel Club (WKC) is an exciting and prestigious event for any dog show exhibitor and enthusiast. According to the Westminster Kennel Club’s website, entries are limited annually and the opportunity to show your dog is based on award requirements and selection. This is due to space considerations at Madison Square Garden. Unlike regular dog shows, not every dog can enter and show and the number of entries in each breed ring is not limitless. As much as we would love to see 30, 40, even 50, Corsi in the ring, the WKC limits the number of Cane Corso entries annually and vacant spots often fill quickly on the first day that entries are accepted.
Entry breakdowns reported by the Canine Chronicle (http://caninechronicle.com/breaking-news/2015-westminster-kennel-club-entry-breakdowns-released/) showed counts as low as 1 per breed and as high as 58 per breed. The entry limit per breed is set by the WKC and the average entry per breed was 14. The Cane Corso had an entry count in 2015 of 20.
The 2015 Westminster Kennel Club premium list stated the following:
“Breed Entry Limit: Entries are limited to 2800 dogs/bitches that meet the award requirements (Invited Top Five Champions in each breed/variety, Invited BOB winners of their Licensed or Member National Breed Club Specialties, Non-Invited dogs/bitches eligible for BOB/V that attained their Championship status prior to the submission of the entry, Non-Invited dogs/bitches eligible for Bred By Exhibitor, American Bred and Open classes that have won at least one 3-, 4- or 5-point major prior to the submission of the entry) within the time frames noted…”
The CCAA congratulates the Cane Corsi who were invited to the 2015 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show and the remaining limited entries who were fortunate enough to meet the requirements and be selected to fill the vacant spots.
