The nominees of the 56th Annual Show Dogs of the Year Awards

By

We’re delighted to formally announce the nominees for the 2010 Winkies®. The winners in each category will be determined by the votes cast on the ballot that will appear in the November issue of Dogs in Review, and the winners will be announced on Feb. 12, 2011, on the evening of the 56th Annual Show Dogs of the Year Awards in New York City prior to Westminster.

This year’s distinguished list includes many first-time nominees as well as old favorites. It is our honor to be able to recognize some of the brightest and best in our sport.

The October issue will include photos of each of the nominees, comments from the Nominating Committee, and the criteria used to select and vote for each category.

Congratulations to all!
