Johnny Peers and the Muttville Comix

Sit! Stay! Get ready to howl! Johnny Peers and his personality-plus canines are coming to tickle your funny bone! A Ringling Brothers Clown College graduate, Johnny Peers has been working with dogs since he got his first puppy, Freckles from the Humane Society in 1972. Since their 1980 debut, the Muttville Comix have appeared on David Letterman, Primetime Live and Circus of the Stars, and at Disneyland, Bush Gardens, the Big Apple Circus and the White House!

A show for the whole family and the dog lover in all of us, the show stars mostly dogs rescued from shelters or pounds, like Daphne, the world’s only skateboarding Basset Hound; Squeaky, the ladder climbing Fox Terrier, Mr. Pepe who only responds to commands in Spanish! A truly funny, slapstick dog act.

NEVERLAND K9 Dog Training Demonstration

Let us teach you how Timing, motivation, and consultancy are the 3 keys to dog training. We will show you how they are applied during training to make you and your dog a team. Training is a team activity that needs to have willing participants that know the rules of the game. We will then show how the relationship can be continued into activity with a nose work demonstration.
