The National Dog Show will take place place November 19th and 20th at the Greater Philadlephia Expo Center in Oaks, PA.
The show is one of the four remaining “benched” shows in America, meaning that dogs are required to stay at the EXPO Center for both show days. Families can see and pet over 180 different breeds (some 2,000 dogs total). Owners and handlers are also very open to answering questions about the temperaments of their dog’s breeds, making it a great event for future dog moms and dads.
Both days also feature agility and diving dog competitions, which are also tons of fun to watch. You might even bump into Seinfeld’s John O’Hurley or NBC sports reporter Mary Carilllo if you come on Saturday!
Tickets are $16 for adults and $7 for kids 12 & under. Kids 3 & under are free. Saturday’s show runs from 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM and Sunday’s show is 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM. Tickets can be purchased in advance at www.nationaldogshow.com.
