The Westminster Kennel Club knows it by Heart. A Labrador retriever named Heart won Westminster’s obedience contest Sunday, extending her sweep of the five-year-old competition.With that, handler Linda Brennan says they don’t plan to enter the contest next year. “I think it’s only fair” to step aside, said Brennan, an obedience trainer from Columbia, New Jersey. The competition requires dogs to sit, stay, retrieve a toy on command and stick by their handlers’ sides while walking around other people, among other skills.
