Presentation is everything
For Thanksgiving Day in the United States, the National Dog Show will traditionally be held for the 19th consecutive year. The exhibition has been held in Philadelphia since 1879. True, at first it was irregular. But since 1993, the show has been held annually and gathers thousands of participants and tens of thousands of spectators.
The order of the show is traditional and consists of three stages. Each tailed competitor is first judged in the "breed" rings, where the best representative of the breed is selected. The next step is to select the best representative of the group, of which there are seven. The finale of the show is the Best in Show selection - the best of the best.
However, the majority of viewers choose “out of competition” activities - demonstration performances in different disciplines, where dogs demonstrate contact with the owner, intelligence, speed and strength.
Such performances are most popular among children, and therefore the dog show has long been considered an event for the whole family. Bemorepanda answered the main questions about this event.
Where is the National Dog Show?
The National Dog Show takes place at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pa.
How can I watch the the dog show on Thanksgiving?
Watch the 2020 National Dog Show on NBC directly after the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Coverage of the National Dog Show begins on Thursday, November 26 at 12 p.m. local time and runs until 2 p.m., covering group and Best in Show judging.
Who won the 2019 National Dog Show?
Last year, Thor the Bulldog beat out over 2,000 dogs representing 196 breeds and varieties recognized by the American Kennel Club to win Best in Show.
How many days it will last?
With full attention being given to state and local health and safety issues for activities during the COVID-19 pandemic, and under the approving guidance of the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners and the Montgomery County Department of Health, the club will stage a single, two-day show
How does the National Dog Show work?
The American Kennel Club recognizes 208 breeds and varieties of dog (though every single one may not be represented at the National Dog Show from year to year). In the first round of the National Dog Show, dogs of the same breed will compete against each other based on how the dog fits the breed standards. The winner, named “Best in Breed,” will represent their breed at the next level: the group.
What breeds makes the National Dog Show?
This year, three breeds make their National Dog Show debut:
- The Barbet, which competes in the Sporting Group, originated as a water dog in France. The breed has a curly coat that can be black, gray, brown, or fawn in color, sometimes with white markings. The Barbet is a calm dog but was bred to help retrieve birds. The breed’s name comes from the French word “barbe,” which means beard.
- The rare Belgian Laekenois (“Lak-in-wah”) joins the Herding Group. This strong, sturdy and protective breed has a rough, tousled coat that can be shades of red, fawn or grey. The Belgian Laekenois was originally bred and raised to guard livestock and linens drying outside before serving as messenger dogs during WWI and WWII.
- The Dogo Argentino, which falls under the Working Group, was originally a pack-hunting dog in Argentina. The breed was known to take down wild boar and puma, among other large game. Dogo Argentinos have short, white coats, but a dark patch near the eye is permitted as long as it doesn’t cover too much of the head.
Who will participate?
There will be hundreds of dogs representing 207 different breeds at the 2020 National Dog Show, but only one can earn the title of Best in Show. Last year, the honor went to a 2-year-old male bulldog named Thor, who beat over 2,000 pooches to win.
How many people watch the show?
The National Dog Show is a beloved holiday tradition for NBC and the over 25 million animal lovers who watched last year's Thanksgiving broadcast.
Is it possible to be present at the show?
In conjunction with the approving guidance of the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners and the Montgomery County Health Department, the 2020 National Dog Show will go forward in November but without spectators, sponsors and media.
This year, as in all previous years, we will be happy to watch this wonderful show. We wish all participants a lot of success and only positive thoughts! Even if we are at a distance we will relive and feel as if we are there absolutely all the emotions!

Elon Musk is a South African entrepreneur and philanthropist, founder of PayPal, SpaceX and Tesla, who has lived in the United States for many years. He is currently the CEO and CTO of SpaceX, CEO and Chief Architect of Tesla Inc. and a member of the board of directors of SolarCity. Its capital for 2018 is $ 22.4 billion. Musk is called a man of success who wants to change the world for the better, thinks about the future and is not sad.
Bemorepanda collected all his advice that should be followed, in order to become successful and rich in our nowadays society.
Here are 10 principles for you to follow in 2021, so to become a successful businessman:
1. Never give up
Elon has suffered many setbacks as an entrepreneur. For example, his company Space X had significant barriers to creating a space rocket that would be much cheaper than previous ones - it would be reusable and could return to Earth. Millions of dollars were lost when rockets exploded. However, Musk did not give up. Today his company is the largest privately-owned rocket engine manufacturer in the world. He signed a contract with NASA to develop vehicles for American astronauts.
Elon plans to further conquer space and send a man to Mars. He believes that if we can reduce the cost of transportation in space, we, as humanity, can achieve great success.
“I have a samurai psychology. I would rather choose hara-kiri than lose, ”Musk says.
2. Do what you really enjoy
Choose a job, career, profession, business, field of activity in which you are interested. Elon believes that if someone really likes what he does, he will never give up, despite his mistakes and failures. If you love your job, you always think about it, you are drawn to it like a magnet. A person who follows their passion and has a real interest in some activity will be more focused and focused.
3. Don't listen to "little people"
If you have chosen a more difficult path and want to do something important, then you should avoid people who criticize you and predict failure. Sometimes even close friends and relatives can dissuade them from their plans based on their own fears and limitations. It is better to stay away from such advisors who will try to stop you and limit the chances of great things.
4. Take risks
Elon Musk believes that young people are more inclined to take risks. Even if they fail, they still have time to correct their mistakes. Students who are graduating from universities or just starting their careers have more opportunities and time to experiment, as long as they don't have children and big commitments. Later, they must take into account not only their own interests, and this can influence decisions and approach to risk. Stability and security will become more important to them. While you are young, full of strength and desire, take risks! Later, you may wish you did this.
5. Do something important
When Elon Musk invested in Tesla, he did not know if the company would succeed. However, he believed in the founders' main idea that electric vehicles could be attractive and that this was the future of the automotive industry. Elon wanted to change the attitude of people towards electric cars. He was faced with a difficult task: to convince society that this is not just a golf cart, but a full-fledged means of transportation that will replace a car. Musk took an active part in the design, believing in the idea. Undoubtedly, it was a big risk, and the chances of defeat were great.
If something is really important to you, you have to make up your mind and do it, even if the possible result is failure.
6. Focus on signals, not noise
Elon believes that companies should be able to distinguish between which efforts directly contribute to the improvement of their product or service, and which do not. When people identify the elements, the factors that add value and make the product better, they should focus on them. Efforts that do not actually improve the product should be considered “noise” and should be stopped as soon as possible as they consume time and other resources. In Tesla's case, the investment goes primarily to research and design to make the cars as comfortable as possible. Significantly less finance is allocated to advertising.
7. Look for people who solve problems
When employing people, pay attention to whether they can solve problems. It is best for the person who is applying for a certain position to tell what he managed to do on his own. Elon thinks if people can describe in the smallest detail what happened, what were the reasons and what they did about it, then they participated in solving the problem. If the answers are superficial and not very specific, it is likely that the person was not actively involved in solving the task. The people who actually solved the problem never forget how much effort it took.
8. Attract successful people
According to Elon Musk, a company is just a group of people. The most important thing in starting a company is finding and attracting successful people and working with them. A company's success is largely determined by how talented, hardworking, and goal-oriented the people who create it are. Great teams make great products.
9. Build a good product
Elon says that no matter what others do, you have to create a great product or service. Big companies are built on big products. If you want to work in a market where you already have competitors, you must offer something much better, much better. Otherwise, consumers choose a reliable and well-known brand.
10. Work hard
Elon warns young entrepreneurs who are just starting their own businesses that they must be prepared for very hard work. It's about working hours, every day, seven days a week, especially if you're a budding entrepreneur. Work as hard as possible, this increases the chances of success. If others work 40 hours a week, and you work 100 hours, then in 4 months you will reach what it takes them a year to do. It takes a lot of effort and sacrifice, saving and investing in your business. Musk believes that a person who works hard redoubles their efforts towards others. At the end of this journey, much more will be achieved and realized.
Successful people like Elon Musk did not appear in one day or month thanks to their continuous series of successes. All great entrepreneurs and businessmen had many defeats and losses, but they were resilient, did not give up, rose and continued on their way again.
