The special is a celebration of America's fascination with man's best friend, hosted by John O'Hurley, the "Seinfeld" ensemble actor (catalogue kind "J.Peterman") and expert analyst David Frei, America's foremost authority on the sport. The two-hour special's unique content is facilitated by the open format of the Kennel Club of Philadelphia event, one of only five remaining "benched" shows in which the dogs are on display all day for the visiting public.
