“We are thrilled to partner with Lifetime to deliver a show that will share our passion for dogs and many of AKC's sports with dog lovers across America,” said Dennis Sprung, President and CEO of the American Kennel Club. “This year’s exciting coverage will remind us all of the incredible power of the human-canine bond.”

The broadcast will include competition and showcases that took place in Orlando, Florida on December 13 and 14, 2014 – during what is the largest dog show in the country. Highlights include dogs racing against the clock in the AKC Agility Invitational, fearless canines splashing down for distance and height in the AKC/NADD Diving Dogs Competition, and youngsters putting their best foot forward in the Junior Showmanship Finals.

The broadcast will culminate with viewers guessing which pampered pooch will take home coveted Best in Show honors at the 2014 AKC/Eukanuba National Championship!
