Initial Costs

Between Westminster costs and the hotel, expect to spend close to $900 for the basics at the show. Cost to enter the Westminster Show is $75 plus you'll need a reserved ticket giving access to the benching area ($140) -- a raised platform to meet and interact with the public when not competing. Rooms at the Hotel Pennsylvania, for this event, were running between $179 and $219 plus tax.
