Scottish deerhound Claire becomes first repeat Best in Show winner at National Dog Show

Claire, a Scottish deerhound, is a history maker.

For the second consecutive year, Claire bested more than 180 breeds of other dogs and won the Best in Show title at the National Dog Show in Philadelphia.

It is the first time a defending champion has won the top title two years in a row.

Good genes must run in the family; Claire’s grandmother Hickory won Best in Show at the 2011 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

The National Dog Show, hosted by the Kennel Club of Philadelphia, was held over two days on November 20 and 21. The show, which was first broadcast on NBC in 2002, has aired on Thanksgiving following the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade for almost 20 years.

Founded by The Kennel Club of Philadelphia in 1879, the show has been held annually since 1933.

The 2022 Westminster show will be held in January.
