“It provides an opportunity for dog lovers and owners to showcase a variety of breeds. In essence, it brings out the best in the dogs,” he said.

The participating dogs had to first be registered with the Kennel Club of India (KCI), Dr Yathinder said.

The championship was first introduced in 1932 coinciding with the formation of the club.

It has garnered an enthusiastic response from the city’s dog lovers since then.
