THE National Dog Show has become one of the most popular Thanksgiving traditions in the United States. The competition debuted on NBC on Thursday, November 25, 2021, at 12 p.m. local time.
Who won the National Dog Show in 2021?
Claire, a Scottish deerhound, was the winner of the National Dog Show in 2021. The same dog won Best in Show two years in a row for the first time in the show’s history.
For the second time, Claire defeated over 180 other dog breeds. Angela Lloyd, her handler, said, “She’s a year older and more confident in herself.” GCH Foxcliffe Claire Randall Fraser is the champion dog’s registered name.
The competition began in 2002 and has since become a Thanksgiving Day tradition for many families. The National Dog Show is sponsored by Nestlé Purina PetCare and sanctioned by the American Kennel Club and the Kennel Club of Philadelphia, and is hosted each year by actors John O’Hurley and David Frei.
On the weekend of November 20, 2021, the show was filmed in front of a live audience at the Expo Center in Philadelphia.
The two-day event includes canine competitions and enhanced athletic dog exhibitions, among other things. Who were the runners-up?
Each dog is assigned to one of seven categories by the competition’s rules: terrier group, toy group, working group, sporting group, hound group, non-sporting group, or herding group. Those who place first in group among the dogs in each of the seven categories are eligible to compete for Best in Show.
