Theyare considered quick learners and they were often calledon as messenger dogs during World War I and II.DOGO ARGENTINOWorking GroupWATCH THENATIONAL DOG SHOWTHANKSGIVING DAYAT NOON, NOVEMBER 26,ON NBC.HOSTED BYDogo ArgentinoThe Dogo Argentino gives off the impression of explosivepower and energy through its athletic build, but is alsoextremely agile. The breed was originally developed inthe Cordoba region of Argentina in 1928 as a fighting dog.However, it was quickly discovered that the Dogo Argentino was adept at hunting wild boar and other big game,an activity that requires fearlessness and stamina. Thelarge, pure-white Dogo Argentino might look imposing,but despite being a natural hunter and watchful guardian,this is a cheerful, friendly breed that is an excellent familycompanion.5

HOW TO WATCH THE DOG SHOWBy Julia ShelleyNBC will celebrate man’s best friend in the19th anniversary edition of the family-favoriteholiday special “The National Dog Show,” airingThanksgiving Day (noon-2 p.m. in all time zones)and here are a few tips on how to enjoy thebroadcast from America’s top expert, David Frei.Dubbed by New York Magazine as “probably themost famous human in the world of canines, ” Freihas been the co-host/analyst of “The National DogShow” since its inception in 2002. After 27 yearswith the famed Westminster Kennel Club DogShow, he now works for NBC and helped create andis the co-host of the Beverly Hills Dog Show, NBC’sspringtime broadcast of the celebrity-studdedcompetition on the left coast.“Think of it as a tournament, like an advancingbracket in sports, where a dog wins at one level ofthe competition and advances to the next,” offersFrei. “The competition this year will begin withhundreds of dogs and will be narrowed down ateach round. The dogs first compete within theirbreeds, the Best of Breed winners advance to thenext level and compete in each of seven groups,and then the seven group winners compete forBest in Show.”WATCH THENATIONAL DOG SHOWTHANKSGIVING DAYAT NOON, NOVEMBER 26,ON NBC.HOSTED BYAt each stage, all dogs are judged to their breed’s“standard,” an American Kennel Club (AKC)approved written description of the ideal specimenof that breed. The standard usually describes thedog’s form as based on its function, what it wasoriginally bred to do. Depending on what thestandard asks for, those attributes evaluated by thejudge can include size, color, coat and other factors.The first step is for the dogs to compete at thebreeds and varieties level. There are currently208 breeds and varieties recognized by the AKC.Whatever the number is, from each breed, thejudge’s ultimate award is Best of Breed or Best ofVariety, and those winners move on to the nextround, the group.So, it is like college basketball’s March Madness -winning the breed can be likened to winning on theopening weekend and advancing to one of sevengroups: Sporting, Hound, Working, Terrier, Toy,Non-Sporting and Herding. If a dog in the SportingGroup wins Best of Breed, it then moves forward tocompete against the other Sporting breed winners.Who to root for? “What we’ve learned from alifetime in the dog show world is that the ‘AlmaMater factor’ usually prevails,” Frei continued.“Dog owners root for their breed, even if they’re notexactly sure what breed that is because the pup onthe couch at home can be a combination of many,all special.””After all,” Frei concluded, “the real Best In Showdog is the one sitting on the couch next to youat home.”To learn more, visit: and www.akc.org7

ABOUT JUDGINGThe judges examine the dogs and place them according to how closelyeach dog compares with the judge’s mental image of the perfect dog asdescribed in the breed’s official standard.

The judges are looking for characteristics that allow the dogto perform the function for which his or her breed was bred.EARNING POINTSA dog will begin his show career by competing to become a“champion.” To earn an AKC Championship title (and to be able toplace Ch. in front of his/her name) the dog needs to win 15 points atAKC shows. Points are earned by defeating other dogs of the same sexand breed in classes held specifically for non-champions. Points used todetermine national rankings are recorded by the AKC and based on thenumber of dogs defeated. For each dog defeated at a dog show, theother dog gets one all-breed point. The top dogs in the country easilyhave more than 50,000 points in a given year.BEST OF BREEDIn order to win Best In Show a dog must first be judged the best ofmany dogs of its same breed competing in the show.
