Cunard Sponsors 2017 Westminster Dog Show
For the first time, Cunard
will be sponsoring the 2017 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, in NYC from
February 11-14. The 2017 Best in Show winner and owner will be offered an
invitation to sail on a Transatlantic Crossing on Cunard’s Queen Mary 2.
As the only cruise line to offer dogs and cats passage on its famed Transatlantic Crossings, Cunard has been sailing pets since the maiden voyage of the Britannia in 1840. They have transported a number of notable pets including: Rin-Tin-Tin, Elizabeth Taylor’s pampered pooches, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor’s beloved pup and Pudsey, winner of Britain’s Got Talent 2012.
Cunard has doubled the size of its kennels on Queen Mary 2, expanded the kennel area, adding an owner’s lounge and a new pet playground. Guests can enjoy an extended outdoor area for dog walking featuring a lamppost from Liverpool and fire hydrant from New York so dogs from both sides of the pond will feel at home.
