National Dog Show 2022 Introduces 3 New Breeds – Who Won Best in Show?

Breaking news: A very good boy just earned some extra turkey in his Thanksgiving bowl.

John O’Hurley and David Frei returned Thursday to host the 2022 National Dog Show, televised on NBC from the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pa. Mary Carillo was also back to provide commentary, analysis and a behind-the-scenes look at the competition.

Three new breeds made their debut in this year’s competition – the Bracco Italiano (sporting group), the Mudi (herding group) and the Russian Toy (toy group) – in which more than 1,500 dogs representing nearly 200 breeds competed for the title Best in Show.

The National Dog Show made history in 2021 when the Scottish deerhound Claire (full name GCH Foxcliffe Claire Randall Fraser for all you Outlander fans!) won the title Best in Show for the second year in a row. Unfortunately, a three-peat was completely out of the question as Claire exited the competition after her back-to-back wins.

So, which hairy hopeful was named Best in Show this year? Here’s how the results shook out:

As always, the competition was rough, and only one competitor could emerge top dog. The winner of the 2022 National Dog Show’s Best in Show is… Winston, the French Bulldog!
