Judging is underway for the 138th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

There are 190 different breeds and varieties entered, coming from all 50 states and as far away as Australia, Japan and Brazil.

Before they strut their stuff for the judges, each participant receives a special doggy spa treatment.

"Like all celebrities, when they go to television shows. they have their own particular green room to make them look pretty with the makeup and grooming, etc. So why not for the Westminster dogs?" said Judy Davis of Green Room Salon Spa and Gym.

"She's getting ready by doin' some treadmillin', getting back in shape," said handler Becker Reep. "She had some puppies seven weeks ago, so she's kind of out of shape."

The "Best in Show" will be crowned Tuesday night at the Garden.
