Relive the Excitement: Watch the AKC/Eukanuba Dog Show on TVPublished January 28, 2013
On the heels of the National Dog Show, which is hosted in November and aired Thanksgiving weekend, comes the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship, the second of the three major dog shows held in the United States. Since 2001, the show has taken Orlando by storm, offering five days of some of the most competitive dog showing around. If you missed the show's live stream in December, the AKC/Eukanuba excitement can be relived again when it airs this Saturday, February 2, on ABC at 2 PM (check your local listings).
The AKC/Eukanuba National Championship, recognized as one of the most prestigious dog shows in the world, features a range of sporting events all held under one roof. More than just a dog show, the event is a celebration of dogs and what they represent as companions to humans. This year's event had over 15,500 combined entries.
As the second of the three major dog shows, the Eukanuba show serves as the lead-in to the Westminster Kennel Club Show, which features many of the same dogs that compete in the AKC/Eukanuba contest. With Westminster only two weeks away, watching this dog show can prove to be an excellent preview of what may transpire under the lights in Madison Square Garden.
