Gromit to host online Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show presentation

According to this article on, Dreamworks is teaming up with The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show to bring the dog show to the internet for dog fans worldwide. The online highlights will be hosted by Gromit!

For the first time ever, fans of “America’s Dog Show” will be able to see highlights of the breed competition held each day in the 165 breeds and varieties. Those highlights will be shot and posted in streaming video on the Westminster web site ( within two hours of the actual competition for any particular breed or variety.

The streaming video is being sponsored by DreamWorks Animation, marking the first time ever in Westminster’s illustrious history that the club has accepted a sponsorship partner outside of a dog food company. The streaming video project will be hosted by Gromit, the canine half of the beloved clay-animated duo Wallace & Gromit. DreamWorks will be presenting Aardman’s new Wallace & Gromit feature length film, which opens on October 7, 2005.

Nick Park added:

“Although he is not a purebred, I am certain that Gromit will have no problem going nose to nose with the other dogs at the competition. He’s a scrappy little pup, and will remind everyone that any dog can truly be a best friend.”

Now I just wonder how a dog that can talk can be a host. We’ll see!
