Trainer Chris Perondi returns to the Bankhead after several yearâs absence with the original stunt dog show, featuring his team of world-class athletic dogs. Focusing on the dogâs remarkable talents, professional performers create a high-energy show for all ages featuring delightful stunts, comic antics and amazing tricks, from high jumps and barrel racing, to pole weaving and disc catching. The âStunt Dog Experienceâ is unusual in that all the dogs in the performance are rescue dogs. An event tailored for families, âChris Perondiâs Stunt Dog Experienceâ will be presented twice on Sunday, November 11, 2018 with an afternoon performance at 2:00 p.m. and a second performance at 6:00 p.m. Ticket prices start at just $20.
Each show includes more than a dozen dogs such as a border collie mix named âFlashy Ferrari,â âCrazy Confettiâ a Jack Russell/Terrier mix, a Texas heeler âTazmanian Tex,â and âHigh-Flying Harley,â a Belgian Malinois. In addition, âStunt Dog Experienceâ has a mascot, Diggy, whose silly but helpful ways turns him into the star of the show. The âStunt Dog Experienceâ is highly interactive, the audience is asked to provide encouragement for the stunts and there are showdowns that are judged by audience applause. The âGolden Bone Showdown,â a series of five separate challenges, tests each dogsâ intelligence, speed, accuracy, and leaping ability. Throughout the performance, the dogs show off talents such as jumping rope, back-flips, and walking backward on their hind legs.
