One of three major dog shows in the United States, along with the AKC National Championship and the Westminster Dog Show, competition winners are often invited to compete at Crufts.

The show was first televised in 2002, when NBC Sports started airing it on Thanksgiving Day after the coverage of the Thanksgiving Day Macy’s Parade in New York.

When is the release date for the National Dog Show?

The National Dog Show will be available to watch on Thursday 24 November, which is Thanksgiving Day in America. The show will kick off at 12 pm Eastern Time, which is 5 pm in UK time.

Who hosts the National Dog Show?

The National Dog Show is hosted by John O’Hurley, best known for playing J. Peterman in the hit sitcom Seinfeld and David Frei, from the American Kennel Club. The show’s chief sponsor is Nestle Purina PetCare.

Speaking to Mainline Today, O’Hurley shared what had drawn him to present the well-known event. He said: “Some might say I’ve had an erratic career, but I always follow my imagination. And when the concept was presented to me, my imagination said, “Do it.” Twenty years later, I can’t say I was wrong.”

He added: “There’s something staggeringly unique about the show. It’s noncontroversial, non-regional, non-athletic and enjoyable whether you’re 4 or 94. Where other televised awards ceremonies are losing their audience, we have a bigger viewership every year (26 million in 2020). Everyone is trying to add a dog event to their programming.”
