The eighth annual AKC/Eukanuba National Championship dog show, held last month in Long Beach, will air tomorrow night on Animal Planet beginning at 8 p.m.  The coverage will be hosted by Bob Goen, with commentary and special reporting from Lee Arnold, Edd Bivin and Leanza Cornett.  Additional showtimes are listed on Animal Planet's website.

Nearly 3,000 dogs competed in the show (including Rolex, a Dogue de Bordeaux, above), which was held in conjunction with the AKC National Obedience Invitational and the AKC Agility Invitational.  Highlights of the agility competition, along with some obedience coverage, will air on Animal Planet next Saturday, Feb. 7, at 8 p.m.
