National Dog Show features Cannon Beach’s David Frei

National Dog Show co-hosts David Frei and John O'Hurley last year with their friend, Nathan, a bloodhound, the reigning Best In Show winner.

“The National Dog Show Presented by Purina,” will crown one of America’s great dogs as its 2016 Best In Show champion on Thanksgiving, bringing canine competition and entertainment to America’s viewers for the 15th year.

Co-hosted by Cannon Beach resident David Frei as the expert analyst with TV personality John O’Hurley, the holiday special follows the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on NBC.

Nearly 2,000 dogs of more than 175 breeds vie for Best in Show honors at the Kennel Club of Philadelphia, host of the competition.

The TV special is a celebration of man’s best friend, and will also feature NBC’s Mary Carillo reporting from backstage with Olympic figure skaters Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski.

Frei and O’Hurley will also be co-hosting the inaugural “Beverly Hills Dog Show presented by Purina” next spring, which will air on USA Network and NBC on Easter Sunday.
