Eukanuba Dog Show in December

Saturday, November 17th, 2007

Don’t miss the 7th Annual AKC/Eukanuba National Championship next month. The show will be held in Long Beach, California on December 1 and 2 and nearly 2,500 dogs will compete.

While the Westminster Kennel Club is better known, the Eukanuba National Championship is becoming THE show to attend. This probably has a bit to do with the better weather in California during December than the Westeminster in New York City.

New to the show this year is the inaugural Eukanuba World Challenge. This inaugural international competition will feature top dogs from 40 countries and six continents. Rare breeds such as the Spanish Greyhound and the Azawakh will compete against more traditional favorites such as Poodles and Dalmatians for the title of “World Challenge Winner” and a total of $15,000.
