Presented by The American Kennel Club and Eukanuba, the event is the largest celebration of dogs in the Unied States.

There will also be several shows featuring the athleticism of dogs, like Dock Dogs, Eukanuba Extreme Soccer Dogs, and Eukanuba Super Dogs.
There will even be a Canine Celebration vendor mall area with over 140 doggie boutiques to shop for Christmas gifts for friends and family.
