The Kennel Club of Philadelphia’s two benched, all-breed dog shows are happening this week on Saturday, November 14 and Sunday, November 15, 2015. At the event attendees can get a free guided tour of the show to find out how dogs prepare, how the competition works, and what judges look for in the show rings.

Here are some of the things attendees will see at the show…

Breed judging
Each day, dogs in more than 160 breeds and varieties are judged individually according to the recognized standards for the breed.

Group and Best in Show judging
Breed winners proceed to judging in the seven groups – Sporting, Hound, Working, Terrier, Toy, Non-Sporting, and Herding. Top dogs from the groups comprise the field for the culmination of the Shows in the main ring.

Between 1 PM and 6 PM Saturday November 14th, NBC TV will film the Group and Best In Show competitions for The National Dog Show Presented by Purina, to be broadcast Thanksgiving Day at noon EST, immediately following the Macy’s Parade.

Demonstration events 
Dogs will show their intelligence and athleticism in a variety of demonstration events – a delight for dog show fans of all ages
