Exciting Breeds of Dogs on Thanksgiving!

Updated on November 25, 2022 00:32 AM by Anna P

Thanksgiving is considered a national holiday celebrated on various dates. The day began by giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and the preceding year. It is a couch lover's dream. It has Thanksgiving Day Parade, heart-warming holiday ads, and the National Dog Show. 

In The National Dog show, for Thanksgiving, the American Kennel Club features three new breeds: the Bracco Italiano, the Russian toy, and the mudi.

Breeds entering into the competition!

For over 20 years, David Frei, a host, and analyst for the National Dog Show explained the breeds selected in the competition. The American Kennel Club selected the breeds; they have a geographic distribution and a parent club that watches them.

In 1879, the Kennel Club of Philadelphia hosted the first National Dog Show since 1933. In 2002, after the Christopher Guest Movie Best in Show release, the show began on national television. Twenty million people across the U.S. tune in annually.

Stephanie Farr about the show!

Stephanie Farr, a writer for The Philadelphia Inquirer, says the event is a hidden gem. He says, ‘I’ve been in the Philly area for about 15 years now, and I didn’t realize I could go to The National Dog Show in person. Also mentioned, 'You can walk around the floor of the National Dog Show; it’s one of the only three bench shows in the country. And this year, it's only one.

Dogs on the floor!

In the show, the dogs are present on the floor as they are not actively competing. The audience interacts with them. Patrons are given a floor map as they navigate the areas for each breed of dog. Dogs and their owners were encouraged by audiences. 

Frei says, 'It's the perfect time to become familiar with a new breed and ask about care'. He said, ‘Because the purpose of a dog show really is for the education of the public. ‘People can find out about a dog that fits their lifestyle and is right for their family.

When does the show take place?

Every year, The National Dog Show takes place the weekend before. By this year the show was filmed this past weekend and will be on air on Thanksgiving Day at 12 p.m.
