Coming into the competition this year, the American Kennel Club recognizes 208 breeds and varieties of dogs. Though it’s not guaranteed that every single breed will be represented, the show is sure to heartwarming as 600 doggies are expected to compete. It seems as though the number is quite high, however, due to COVID-19, the 600 participants are a 70 percent decrease from the nearly 2,000 who compete in a regular year, NBC Sports reports.
The number of dogs isn’t the only thing the AKC is scaling back on. This year’s event will also take place without spectators, vendors, sponsors or media. Judging will be done following strict safety guidelines, including social distancing, wearing masks and monitoring temperatures of all participants.
John O’Hurley and David Frei will be coming as hosts. The two have co-hosted together since the National Dog Show first aired. Mary Carillo will also be back for more commentary, analysis and behind-the-scenes looks at one of the oldest dog shows in the world.
