To win the title of best in show, champion dogs are judged based on how close they meet the standards of perfection for their breed, but the competition can also heat up for those who hold the leash.

Junior showmanship classes and competitions have long been traditions of the American Kennel Club and Westminster Kennel Club. Westminster's David Frei and a few junior handlers stopped by to demonstrate the proper way to present a champion dog.

The dog handlers featured on the show include Paige Day, Laura Flannery, Rick Terella, Dylan L. Kipp, and Amanda Ray.
