More than 2000 dogs will compete at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Madison Square Garden, but the show is about more than just winning and losing.

One of the best parts about the illustrious dog show is how these mostly well-mannered dogs behave behind the scenes. Much of the attention is on how the dogs perform on the green carpet during the competition, but it's enjoyable to watch them relax a bit before and after the actual show. Three of our favorite breeds to track behind the scenes were English bulldogs, Dalmatians and Old English Sheepdogs. 

These lovable dogs all have different personalities and looks, but do share one common trait: they are all adorable.

Take a look at a few of our favorite pictures of these unique dogs at the 136th annual Westminster Dog Show on Monday.
