It is time to celebrate 20 years of the National Dog Show with the 2021 contest, a “celebration of canine competition and companionship,” according to the NBC press release. A total of 209 breeds identified by the American Kennel Club will compete for the title of Best In Show during the Turkey Day tradition hosted by actor John O’Hurley and American Kennel Club-licensed judge David Frei. Joining the as always is Mary Carillo reporting from backstage and inside the show ring. This team has co-hosted the event since its first TV broadcast in 2002.

“It is extraordinary how this TV special has become an annual television-watching tradition for American families,” stated O’Hurley, who has written three books about the dogs in his life since the show’s 2002 debut. “Dogs more than ever have become a part of people’s lives and the show reminds us of how great they are and how easy it is for them to make us smile.”

According to NBC Sports, the competition works as follows:

In the first round of the National Dog Show, dogs of the same breed will compete against each other based on how the dog fits the breed standards. The winner, named “Best in Breed,” will represent their breed at the next level: the group. The American Kennel Club categorizes every breed into seven groups (sporting, hound, working, terrier, toy, non-sporting and herding). At the group level, dogs are not judged against each other, but rather against how well they fit their breed standards. Each group winner, named “First in Breed,” will go on to compete in the final round for the coveted Best in Show.

New to the National Dog Show this year is the Biewer Terrier (“biewer” is pronounced like “beaver”), a tri-colored yorkie bred in Germany that will compete in the toy group. The Biewer Terrier is an “elegant and athletic toy terrier whose only purpose in life is to love and be loved. They maintain a charming, whimsical attitude and are dedicated, loyal family members and friendly with strangers.”

The past five best in show winners include a Scottish Deerhound named Claire in 2020, a Bulldog named Thor in 2019, a Whippet named Whiskey in 2018, a Brussels Griffon named Newton in 2017, and a Greyhound named Gia in 2016.

The 2021 National Dog Show airs Thursday, November 25 at noon in all time zones on NBC.
