From the Westminster Dog Show, With Love

You've likely seen the Chow Chows and Cocker Spaniels strutting their stuff on the green carpet at the 136th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show this week, but there's more to this iconic sporting event than what you see on TV — like the behind-the-scenes action that really makes up the heart of the legendary dog show.

In honor of Valentine's Day, we've compiled some of our favorite heartwarming footage filmed in the benching area, where row upon row of dogs wait patiently with their owners and handlers. In this special section, the public is allowed to pet the canines, ask questions or just take in the madness of the area, which is a show in and of itself!
