THE National Dog Show has become one of the most popular Thanksgiving traditions.
This year's competition premiered on NBC on Thursday, November 25, 2021, at 12pm local time.
Who won the National Dog Show 2021?
The winner of the 2021 National Dog Show is a Scottish deerhound named Claire.
For the first time in the show's history, the same dog won Best in Show two years in a row.
Claire managed to beat over 180 breeds of other dogs for the second time.
"She’s a year older and more sure of herself,” her handler, Angela Lloyd said.
The champion dog's registered name is GCH Foxcliffe Claire Randall Fraser.
The competition was introduced in 2002 and has since become a family favorite on Thanksgiving Day.
Presented each year by actor John O’Hurley and David Frei, the National Dog Show is sponsored by Nestlé Purina PetCare and sanctioned by the American Kennel Club and the Kennel Club of Philadelphia.
This year's show was filmed in front of a live audience at the Expo Center in Philadelphia over the weekend of November 20, 2021.
The two-day event features a variety of activities, including canine competitions and enhanced athletic dog exhibitions.
Who were the runners-up?
According to the competition's regulations, each dog is assigned to one of seven categories: terrier group, toy group, working group, sporting group, hound group, non-sporting group, or herding group.
Participants who win First in Group among the dogs in each of the seven categories are eligible to compete for Best in Show.
This year Claire, an affenpinscher named Chester, German shorthaired pointer Jade, Lakeland terrier MM, Kuvasz Mo’ne, Sasha the Pyrenean shepherd, and an English bulldog called Winter were the show's finalists.
The title of Reserve Best in Show went to Sasha.
