“The sight of dogs roaming the grounds at the home of the U.S. Open is certain to put a smile on everyone’s faces,” chief operating officer Danny Zausner said in a release.
The dog show dates to 1877 and is considered the nation's most prestigious canine competition. These days, dogs face off in agility, obedience and the traditional breed-by-breed judging that leads to the best in show award on the final night. Fox Sports televises and streams various parts of the event.
Next year, the top dog will be crowned in the center of Arthur Ashe Stadium, the kennel club said.
The U.S. Open takes place in August and September.
