DISTINGUISHED CANINE CRITICS WENDY DIAMOND, ALLAN REZNIK AND VICTORIA STILWELL WILL DECIDE WHO WILL BE CROWNED THE "GREATEST AMERICAN DOG" WHEN THE NEW REALITY COMPETITION SHOW PREMIERES THURSDAY, JULY 10, ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

Judges Wendy Diamond (and her dog, Lucky) Allan Reznik and Victoria Stilwell will determine the GREATEST AMERICAN DOG on CBS

Distinguished canine critics Wendy Diamond, Allan Reznik and Victoria Stilwell are the three judges who will decide which is the GREATEST AMERICAN DOG when the new reality-competition series premieres Thursday, July 10 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Twelve extraordinary teams of dogs and owners from across the nation will compete for the title of GREATEST AMERICAN DOG. Hosted by zoologist/television personality Jarod Miller, owners and their pets - from "pageant dogs" to those simply trained at home - will live together and compete against each other in challenges that put the owners' ability to train their dogs to the test. Each week, the judges will eliminate one dog and their owner. The last remaining team will walk away with a $250,000 cash prize and the title of GREATEST AMERICAN DOG.

Wendy Diamond is the Chief Pet Officer, Editor-In-Chief and founder of the animal lifestyle magazine and website, Animal Fair, dedicated to fairness to animals and responsible breeding. Diamond and her rescue dog, Lucky, are frequent pet lifestyle contributors to the CBS' THE EARLY SHOW, "The Today Show," "The View," "Fox News," "CNN" and "Good Morning, America," among many others. She has been featured in numerous publications including Forbes, Time, People, The New Yorker and Vogue. Diamond is the author of two books, How to Understand Men Through Their Dogs and How to Understand Women Through Their Cats, and is currently working on her next book, How to Train your Boss to Roll Over. Diamond is the executive producer and host of the television special Paws for Style, and the co-producer and host of Lucky Travels on Animal Planet. She is also finishing her "Docu-Comedy," In Search of Puppy Love, featuring cameos by Warren Beatty, Paula Abdul and Hugh Hefner, among many more. In addition to her contributions in the pet world, Diamond is also a cause-related entrepreneur whose two best-selling cookbooks, A Musical Feast and An All-Star Feast, have helped raise thousands of dollars for homeless people and children. She and her dog, Lucky, are currently the Chairperson and Chair Dog of the Katrina Pet Memorial Fund, and continue to honor their Mantra of helping the underdog anyway they can.

Allan Reznik is perhaps best known for successfully combining his print and broadcast journalism with his passion for dogs. His career spans from teaching to writing books, scripts and countless articles for magazines, newspapers and public television. For over 30 years, Reznik has been involved in the dog world as an owner, breeder, trainer, dog-show exhibitor, handler, judge and media commentator. He hosted bi-weekly pet segments on Life Network/HGTV (Canada) where he brought dogs of various breeds on the show to discuss their suitability as pets. In 2002, while working as Editor-in-Chief of the magazine Dogs in Canada, he was recruited by Fancy Publications in California and relocated to oversee their dog magazine division. He is currently Editor-at-Large of Dog World and Dog Fancy, as well as Editor-in-Chief of Dogs in Review. In addition, he was chief consultant to National Geographic Television and an on-air guest for a documentary on the life of the urban dog. In February of 2008, he was honored with the Best Editorial Columnist of the Year Award by the Alliance of Purebred Dog Writers.

Victoria Stilwell is one of the world's most recognized and respected dog trainers. Seen in over 30 countries, she is best known as the host of the television series, "It's Me or the Dog," where she shares her insight and passion for positive, reward-based dog training. Stilwell is the co-founder of Dog Trainers of New York, Dog Trainers of New Jersey and, most recently, Dog Trainers of Georgia. She has penned two books, It's Me or the Dog: How to Have the Perfect Pet and Fat Dog Slim: How to Have a Healthy, Happy Pet. She remains committed to helping the cause of animal rescue and is heavily involved with rescue groups around the world, including Paws Atlanta, Stray from the Heart (New York), Hong Kong Dog Rescue and Greyhound Rescue of West England. She supports the Wisconsin Puppy Mill Project, Jana Kohl, and the Waterside Action Group in their fight against the horrific practice of puppy farming. Stilwell is certified by the Animal Behavior and Training Associates and is a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT). Her dog-related writings have been published in numerous magazines and journals including The New York Times, Dog World, Dogs Today, Psychology Today and The Sun. She has appeared on countless talk and radio shows in the United States, Europe and Asia.

GREATEST AMERICAN DOG is executive produced by R.J. Cutler, Stu Schreiberg and Stephen Kroopnick for Magic Molehill Productions, Inc., in association with Actual Reality Pictures and Triage Entertainment, Inc.
