The 2016 AKC National Championship presented by Royal Canin was one of the largest dog shows ever held in North America. And in the end, a Puli named Preston earned Best in Show honors, beating out nearly 5,000 competitors—representing 190 breeds—and earning a $50,000 cash prize at the event at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

The 16th edition of the AKC’s National Championship featured a multitude of events. Along with Best in Show and Best of Breed competitions for its seven groups (sporting, hound, working, terriers, toy, non-sporting and herding), other proceedings included the AKC Agility Invitational, the AKC Obedience Classic and junior events.
