You can watch it on Saturday at 8 p.m. (Eastern and Pacific) on the Animal Planet and Discovery Channels.

It’s the seventh annual AKC/Eukanuba National Championship. TV Guide recently included the event on a list of “21 Shows You’ve Gotta See,” calling it “the annual best-in-showcase of toys, terriers and other classy canines.”

Hosted by Bob Goen with play-by-play commentary from Lee Arnold and Edd Bivin, viewers can watch the competition and learn about the world of dog shows, as well as over 150 dog breeds.

The AKC/Eukanuba National Championship will repeat multiple times following the premiere. For more information, visit:

February is REALLY the month for super dog shows. On Feb. 11-12 you can watch the Olympics of all dog shows (and my favorite!) … the 132nd Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Madison Square Gardens in New York City. It will be broadcast live both nights on the USA Network ( Nov. 11, 8-9 p.m.; Nov. 12, 8-11 p.m.).

More on this next week, but if you can’t wait, check out

Have fun! Woof! /Gary
