Hooray for Hollywood! Dog Show Debuts from Beverly Hills


Continuing over the next week or so, I’ll be sharing an exclusive preview of the Beverly Hills Dog Show presented by Purina.

The show will bring out all the stars: Many Hollywood celebs will be there, but, of course, the real stars have four legs.

Purina’s a star, too, for donating to North Shore Animal League America‘s Mutt-i-Grees programs, which support animal welfare education, helping kids learn to be kind to animals. You can help raise money for this great cause: On social media between March 26 and April 8, state why your dog is a star and include #BHDogShow, and Purina will make a contribution to Mutt-i-Grees. Now, that’s something to bark about!

If you’re into the dog show world, you’ll be impressed with the fact that nearly 1,300 dogs participate, representing about 175 breeds and varieties. Simply put, it’s a big dog show. You know it’s an important dog show, as David Frei (Mr. Dog Show) is behind the mic with John O’Hurley, actor from Seinfeld. And, we were at the show with our cameras, too. We interviewed handlers of many breeds, and I’ll be posting those breed-specific interviews on my social media platforms until the Easter Sunday dog show airing.

Watch the show on Easter Sunday (April 1) on USA Network at 5 p.m. CDT. An encore presentation will air on NBC April 8 at 12 p.m. CDT.
