BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

A Bethlehem resident will be competing in the first Masters Agility Championship at Westminster in New York City on Saturday, Feb. 8, part of the famed Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show week.

Yale West and his mixed breed, Edward, will be a part of the club’s agility trial that takes place on the Saturday before the 138th Annual Westminster Kennel Club All Breed Dog Show.

The trial is limited to dogs competing at Excellent or Master level, which includes both purebred and mixed breed dogs. The Mixed Breed category is especially significant, bringing non-purebred dogs to a Westminster event for the first time since the very earliest days of its show.

The Westminster Kennel Club’s first-ever agility trial precedes Westminster’s 138th Annual All Breed Dog Show.
