State legislature voted today to formally designate November as NATIONAL DOG SHOW MONTH in Pennsylvania. House Resolution 1135 sponsored by State Rep. Warren Kampf (R-Chester/Montgomery) unanimously passed the House today. “We’re proud in the 157th district to be the home of The National Dog Show. It’s one of the great events held in this part of the state and it is broadcast on Thanksgiving Day on NBC between the Macy’s Parade and football,” proclaimed Rep. Kampf. “Twenty-five (25) million people watch it all over the country and we are so fortunate to have it in Oaks, Pennsylvania.”

The Kennel Club of Philadelphia dog shows have been centerpieces of the dog show world since 1879 and draw over 2,000 entries and some 15,000 people to the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks. Penna. This year, the National Dog Show is set for November 17 and 18. According to Kennel Club of Philadelphia board member Steve Sansone, “I’ve witnessed the growth of the Kennel Club of Philadelphia’s National Dog Show for several years now and it’s not only the top show in Pennsylvania, it’s one of the most prominent in America. More breeds than ever, more entries than ever, more vendors than ever, and more attendance than ever over the past few years.”

The National Dog Show  is one of only three shows in the United States that is “benched,” meaning that all dogs from among 240 AKC breeds are on-site all day long, available to interact with the public.  Visitors to the Kennel Club of Philadelphia shows can learn about the different breeds and see them in conformation competition along with agility dogs, search and rescue dogs, and therapy dogs demonstrations, as part of a century-old Philadelphia tradition.
