The WoofJocks Canine All Stars will be back at Purina PawsWay for the civic long weekend! This popular team of professional dog trainers and of course, their very talented dogs, offer a 30-minute variety show that is both educational and entertaining. Each show is choreographed to music, showcasing tricks, agility, Frisbee, musical freestyle, precision obedience drills and fun, audience interactive canine games and more!
All the Woofjocks shows are unique from the dogs involved to the tricks being performed! It’s not just about entertainment, the team will also demonstrate motivational ways of working with your family pets and show that positive reinforcement does not mean permissive – training can and should be fun!
Admission is FREE!
Following each show there will be an opportunity for audience members to meet the trainers and their incredible dogs. We do ask, however, that family pets remain out of the centre ring during this time.
*Purina PawsWay will be open on Monday, August 1 (11am-5pm).
