John O’Hurley on Dogs and the National Dog Show Presented by Purina

John O'Hurley and Steve Dale on National Dog Show presented by Purina


What has John O’Hurley not done in show in business? He’s really done it all, from hosting game shows to being J. Peterman on Seinfeld to broadcasting golf events to appearing on stage in many productions – including on Broadway. And for 17 years, with David Frei, he’s hosted the National Dog Show Presented by Purina. And for as many years, I talk with O’Hurley before the big show  on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show.

Next, O’Hurley says he wants to write another book, and an album to compose. He truly is a real Renaissance man.

O’Hurley comments on why he believes the National Dog Show has been so incredibly successful in the national ratings, on NBC following the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

O’Hurley talks about what dog mean to him. And notes how dogs help us, but also discusses how we should be paying more attention to helping them too. And he adds that people who inherently don’t like dog are “very brittle people.”
