The National Dog Show is returning to the Philadelphia area this weekend for the fourth year in a row.

Around 2,000 purebred canines and over 170 different breeds, will be on display for the competition.

The show will also introduce two new American Kennel Club sanctioned breeds, the Russel Terrier and the Treeing Walker Coonhound. The competition is a “benched” format show in which the public will have the chance to interact with the dogs, learn about different breeds and talk with experts. Philadelphia is only one of five “benched” format shows left in the country.

The winner of the dog show will receive $20,000 in prize money.

The show, hosted by the Kennel Club of Philadelphia, is set to take place November 17 through November 18, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on both days, at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pa. Best In Show judging is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. each day in the stadium ring.

NBC10 will air the show on Thanksgiving Day, right after the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, from noon until 2 p.m.

Tickets for the show are available online at the National Dog Show website.
