This past February, we had the pleasure of partnering with Purina to attend the 2020 Beverly Hills Dog Show. We had an absolute blast being able to have a behind-the-scenes experience so that we could show you how to have the best Beverly Hills Dog Show watch party! We will give you all the details you need in order to enjoy the pre-recorded event set to air on Sunday May 17th at 8pm ET/PT & 7pm CT/MT on NBC. The Beverly Hills Dog Show Presented by Purina combines the stars of Hollywood with the stars of the dog world for a glamorous red-carpet event that everyone at home can enjoy!
WHAT TO EXPECT
The Beverly Hills Dog Show Presented by Purina, held at the Fairplex in Pomona, CA is an event for the whole family! We saw people of all ages enjoying all the different types of dogs, and show categories throughout the event. The dogs compete at different groups, such as the toy group (which Honey Bear would have been in), and the winners of each group compete for the overall show title of Best in Show. Each group (there are seven total) has judges who look closely at each breed of dog competing on their way to hopefully earning the Best in Show title. The hosts David Frei, and John O’Hurley do a great job of giving the background of each breed as they compete. It was not only a fun show, but a great way to learn about each breed of dog. This combined with the celebrity attendance, with people such as Maria Menounos and Brian Baumgartner (Kevin from The Office), the show has definite flavors of Hollywood and Beverly Hills!
We got to have the Red Carpet VIP experience where we got to bump elbows with Maria and even Doug the Pug at the event. There were tasty treats, big screens of the competitions going on, as well as a first-look at the Best in Show Showroom! We had a blast exploring the behind-the-scenes look at the whole experience.
OUR FAVORITE MOMENTS
We had an absolute blast the whole time while we were there. Some of our favorite moments throughout the event was seeing all the different varieties of dogs, the owners, and getting a background on each breed was very informative as well. Of course we had to check out the Pomeranian representative in the toy group, we kept trying to imagine how Honey Bear would fair in the experience as a whole. We were able to see some of the winners, and even got to pet a couple of them!
Now while we can’t disclose any of the winners from the event, we can tell you that you will not be disappointed by the beauty, the class, and how professionally handled each of these breeds were.
Seeing how loved, cherished, and happy each one of these dogs were in the competition was definitely a highlight as well. We could definitely relate to the relationship between the owners and their fury friends!
BEST WATCH PARTY ADVICE
Gather all of your dogs and family in your home, get them some tasty treats (Purina treats for the pups), roll out the red carpet, and enjoy the whole experience. We have our VIP entrance sign, our confetti (ready to throw for the winner) and some drinks to enjoy the whole experience together. If you are looking for a great way to learn more about your dog, to see the best version of each breed, and to enjoy a family fun event, this is definitely for you. We can’t wait to tune in on Sunday, May 17 to see some of our favorites from the event again, and we hope that you love it as much as we did!
