Dog Shows Give a Glimpse of Dog Breeds at Their Best

November 2018

The National Dog Show

There are traditions aplenty on Thanksgiving Day. One that’s been a part of the day for 16 years is the National Dog Show. The event is steeped in history and is one of the oldest dog shows in the nation. Purina is a long-time sponsor of the celebration of dogs. The ceremony and drama of the day is one we are proud to be a part of. This year, as in others, we join the American Kennel Club and NBC to introduce families across the country to the celebration of purebred dogs. There’s so much going on in the show—it’s an experience.
