Accompanied by their human companions, thousands of pedigreed canine contenders flock to the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center for a day of friendly, furry competition. In the first round, kicking off at 8:30 a.m., dogs of more than 150 breeds contend against their fellow representatives for a chance to move on to the next level, which is divided into seven groups. Fans might see a chipper Pomeranian put up against a squat pug in the toy division, or spot nonsporting dogs such as the lion-maned Löwchen and the curl-tailed shiba inu squaring off in a verbal debate. Finally, around 5 p.m., the seven winners in their respective categories take to the floor to vie for the highest honor of all: Best in Show.

Alongside the main event, canine aficionados can catch exhibitions of stunt dogs, diving dogs, and therapeutic companion pups. The National Dog Show is a benched show, meaning that all of the competitors wait ringside on assigned benches, where they meet fans and might, with their owner’s permission, accept a pat or two.
