The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is a two-day show that takes place at both Pier 92 and 94 and at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The annual event brings thousands of dogs together to compete for the coveted ‘Best in Show’ prize.

Competition is fierce and pet owners can often go to extremes to make sure their beloved pooches stand out. Often, this can result in dogs imitating very human-like activities and behaviours.

And, sometimes, these pets even manage to master these ordinary skills better than humans. With that in mind, we take a look at seven dogs at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show who do things better than you:

The dog know that knows how to make a memorable entrance with just a bedazzled collar. Put your jewelry away, you can’t top this look.

This dog can wear child hair clips and still look hip. Do you think you can pull off this look? Are you an adult human? Then don’t bother trying, it won’t work on you.

This dog can make a ‘soul connection’ with you without having one look into its eyes. Is that even possible for you? Nope.

The dog managed to wake up with this perfect, voluminous hair. We know no amount of styling product can make your hair do that.

Without trying, this dog manages to look extremely comfortable while sleeping on the floor. Okay you can probably do that too.
