“The National Dog Show Presented by Purina®” celebrates man’s best friend and is hosted by award-winning actor, author and Broadway star John O’Hurley (“Seinfeld,” “Dancing with the Stars,” “Devious Maids”). Expert analysis is offered by David Frei, an American Kennel Club-licensed judge and former host of USA Network’s “Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.” NBC’s Mary Carillo will report from the benching area and inside the show ring, while Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir offer a behind-the-scenes look at the show as reporters and digital contributors.
“For 15 years, the ‘National Dog Show Presented by Purina’ has been at the forefront of the purebred dog world,” said O’Hurley. “I’m proud to be a part of a legacy that celebrates such a rich history. I look forward to seeing all the dogs and families, who come out to join us on my favorite day of the year.”
NBC will present an encore of this year’s “National Dog Show Presented by Purina®” on Saturday, Nov. 26 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT).
Last year, Good Time Charlie, a 4½-year-old Skye Terrier who won over the crowd with his beautiful coat and happy personality, was named Best in Show from among the seven group winners.
