The 9th Annual National Dog Show will air on NBC tomorrow, right after the Macy’s parade. Slated to start at noon, the event will introduce six new breeds, including the Icelandic Sheepdog, the Bluetick Coonhound, the Leonberger, the Cane Corso, the Redbone Coonhound, and the Boykin Spaniel. This brings the total number of AKC-recognized breeds to 167.
The Kennel Club of Philadelphia’s two benched, all-breed dog shows were held this year on Saturday, November 20 and Sunday, November 21, so this is not a live presentation, but I’ll try to blog during the show to get you all of the group winners as they are shown. (Just in case the football fans in your family have taken over your television.) My understanding is that over 2,000 dogs participated in the show.
The shows, sanctioned by The American Kennel Club, will help raise money for the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine with support from Purina ProPlan® brand dog food.
You can see mini-clips like the one above on NBC Sports’ website.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
