What is the most popular sport in the USA?
It depends on how you measure it. If its by audience, then Football, Baseball, Nascar are all up there. If you look at the number of people who participate in the sport, then dog shows would likely be at the top of the list.
There are multiple registries in the US (AKC, UKC, IKC, etc) each with many regional or national clubs for the owners and participants. Each registery supports multiple ways to compete ranging from confirmation, rally, obedience, agility, scent dog, herding, hunt retrieving, dock dog, trick dog, barn hunts, lure coursing, and many more. Each year more activities are being added.
Every weekend across the US thousands of people are participating in some sort of dog show or competing event, with many more thousands supporting the participants, training and grooming the dogs, and running these shows.
