    With the Super Bowl (and the halftime Puppy Bowl) played out, it's time for the next blockbuster sporting event of the season: the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

    Much like their human counterparts, these four-legged competitors have trainers and coaches with their own strategies and techniques to help their stars shine on the famous green carpet at Madison Square Garden.

    More than 300,000 pups have practiced their paws off to impress the sharp-eyed judges since the first show took place in 1877. As you can imagine, a lot takes place behind the scenes of this venerable event.

    So we decided to get the scoop on some inquiring-mind questions from show chairman Thomas H. Bradley, 3d; Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show co-host David Frei and handler Clint Livingston, who's made it into Best in Show five times.
