The National Dog Show is happening November 16th and 17th at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center at Oaks with over 2,000 dogs from 190 different breeds. Saturday is the day of the Thanksgiving Day TV taping, and both days will feature a number of great activities and entertainment options for the entire family. As one of the few remaining, and oldest benched dog shows in the country, this basically means that at the National Dog Show –  the public gets to meet all the dogs!!! It’s such a fun event, and we’re so lucky to have it here in our area! for tickets and information.
