AKC/Eukanuba National Championship

I just wanted to let everyone know that the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship will be televised tomorrow night, Saturday, February 6, 2010 at 8 PM (ET/PT) on Animal Planet and Discovery Channel. The country’s top dogs compete for $225,000 in prize money including $50,000 to the Best in Show winner.

"The AKC/Eukanuba National Championship is the AKC's culminating event, determining the nation's best canines. Like all dog shows, it is a process of elimination, with one dog being named "Best in Show" at the end of the two-day contest.

Only the "Best of Breed" winners advance to compete in the group competitions. Each AKC-recognized breed falls into one of seven group classifications. The seven groups are Sporting, Hound, Working, Terrier, Toy, Non-Sporting and Herding. Four placements are awarded in each group, but only the first-place winner advances to the "Best in Show" competition."

"This year, in celebration of AKC’s 125th anniversary, the show adopted an open format, allowing all exhibitors to enter and compete for championship points. In addition, 133 breed clubs also hosted specialties and supported entries in honor of this milestone."

The show also hosted the third annual Eukanuba World Challenge, an international competition featuring the top dogs from 41 countries and six continents. The highlights and the winning moment from the Eukanuba World Challenge will be included in the telecast.

Tune in to cheer on our lovable Labrador Retrievers!!
