In Dog Eat Dog, Jane and Michael Stern follow one kennel's dogs - Mimi Einstein's Allstar Bullmastiffs - through a tumultuous year on the circuit, from the opening weekend show in Princeton, New Jersey, to the nerve-racking season finale ten months later at the Super Bowl of dog shows: the Westminster Kennel Club show at Madison Square Garden.
Along the way they explore a wide world of dogs: tiny, hairless polka-dotted ones like Randall, a Chinese Crested; giant, hirsute ones like the leonine Leonberger, Koko von der Heckenrose; and an assortment of Poodles, Cocker Spaniels, Afghans, and more. At all-breed shows in Providence, Rhode Island, and Greenwich, Connecticut, and a best-in-breed specialty event in Plano, Texas, they put the reader in the crossfire of competition and explain the politics, tonsorial tricks, and gritty ambition that can make a show dog a champion and its handler a star.
Written with genuine affection for dogs and spirited enthusiasm for the equally entertaining people and rituals of the show world, Dog Eat Dog is a must-read for anyone who has ever owned a dog, showed a dog, or wondered what could possibly motivate those who do.
