When it comes to canine competitions, the National Dog Show is among the most prestigious. The Philadelphia Kennel Club has been hosting this annual dog show since its inception in 1879.
Only purebred dogs that are registered with the American Kennel Club are eligible to compete in the NDS. There are 212 dog breeds and varieties that are officially recognized by the American Kennel Club. To view the 2021 National Dog Show winners, as well as video highlights and more, click here.
Since 2002, NBC has broadcast the show live on television following Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Hosts John O’Hurley and David Frei are returning for another season as they have done every year since the show’s inception. One of the oldest dog shows in the world will welcome back Mary Carillo for more analysis, commentary, and exclusive access.
How Do Dog Shows Work?
Now is a great time to start learning about dog shows if you aren’t already familiar with them. Preparing yourself with a basic understanding of dog show
jargon will help you have a more enjoyable experience. Also, learn the criteria used to select a winner at a dog show. Dogs are not compared to one another in any way,
shape, or form. Instead, the AKC breed standard for each specific type of dog is used. The winner is the dog that most closely resembles the ideal of its breed.
How Do I Purchase Tickets?
Be aware that the events depicted on the show do not happen on the day it is broadcast. Instead, filming takes place the weekend before Thanksgiving, on November 19 and 20,
in this year’s season. For those who purchase a ticket, the competition is open to the public at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pennsylvania. There will be around 100 different dog breeds represented among the 2,000 dogs expected to participate.
The dates of November 19 and 20 are now available for the purchase of tickets. Online ticket sales are now open for the National Dog Show. Adult tickets are $16, child tickets (ages 4-11) are $7, and children (ages 3 and under) get in free.
Who Was The National Dog Show 2021 Winner?
This is year two for Claire, the Scottish deerhound. The graceful hound comes from a long line of successful show dogs; her grandmother, Hickory, won Best in Show at the 2011 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.
At age 4, Claire became the first dog in the National Dog Show’s 20-year history, and out of more than 1,500 competitors, to win the title more than once. A perfect season is not going to happen. With Claire’s retirement, a new champion will be crowned this time around.
Exactly who will it be? I have no idea, but I do know that you can place bets with your loved ones on the outcome of the show.
