The Kennel Club of Philadelphia has held dog shows for over 125 years and held its 2016 National Dog Show the weekend of November 19-20. More than 190 AKC registered breeds and varieties were assigned to one of seven groups that represented characteristics and functions the breeds were bred for. Three new breeds were introduced this year and were American Hairless Terrier in the Terrier Group, the Pumi in the Herding Group, and the Sloughi in the Hound Group. Winners in each of the seven groups competed for Best in Show.
