The AT&T Performing Arts Center is excited to bring The Stunt Dog Guy™ and the Stunt Dog Experience™ to Dallas for two shows at 10:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 9 at Annette Strauss Square in the Downtown Dallas Arts District. This cast of performers and dogs will delight audiences of all ages with high energy excitement from beginning to end. During Stunt Dog Experience™ you will witness some of the most incredible stunts and behaviors ever performed by dogs. The experience has amazing tricks, big air stunts, comedy antics, dancing dogs, athletic feats, and is the most entertaining show of its kind.
Every show includes interactive crowd participation. It’s not just a show, it’s an experience! Audience members will chant “Dog gone fun!” and be involved in the excitement of the production. The show will include “showdowns” that will be judged and won by audience applause. Don’t forget the athletic feats! From world class Frisbee catching dogs, the Stunt Dog triathlon, weave pole challenges, to the famous high-jumping phenomenon. You will witness the most athletic and talented dogs in the world.
You will meet a cast of professional performers along with over a dozen talented pound pups. The show is one-of-a-kind and brings forth pet adoption awareness. All the dogs have been rescued from pounds and shelters from across the country. The mission is to promote animal rescue, pet adoption, encourage spay & neutering, and encourage people to spend more time with their pets.
These stars have been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show, David Letterman, the Tonight Show, Ellen Show, Animal Planet’s Pet Stars, Fox Sports “You Gotta See This!”, the CBS Early Show and much more. They have also starred in commercials and have been featured on the news and in magazines all across the country. Director Chris Perondi has been entertaining audiences of all sizes since 1999. He has produced over 3,500 shows in his career.
