Allan Reznik, Editor-at-Large for Dog World and DOG FANCY magazines and DogChannel’s breed and dog show expert, has joined CBS’ new reality-competition show, “Greatest American Dog,” as one of three judges.
The show – think “American Idol” meets “Purina Incredible Dog Challenge” – pits 12 teams of dogs and owners from across the country in weekly challenges that put the owners’ ability to train their dogs to the test.
Each week judges Reznik, Animal Fair editor Wendy Diamond, and dog trainer Victoria Stilwell eliminate one dog and owner. The remaining dog-and-owner team will receive a $250,000 cash prize and the title of Greatest American Dog.
“There is great chemistry among the three judges, and some very engaging dog-and-owner teams competing,” said Reznik in a statement. “The show will be fast-paced and entertaining, but informative as well, with the judges commenting on behavior issues and offering breed-specific advice.”
“Greatest American Dog” premieres tonight, July 10, on CBS. For show times and to meet the contestants, click here.
Reznik will be on DogChannel’s message boards Friday, following the show’s airing, beginning at 10 a.m. PDT. Visit the forums to chat with him about the latest episode.
