World’s Top 4-Legged Athletes to Perform at the Perot Theatre Saturday Oct 22
If you love dogs and who doesn't? Then get ready for something special that is coming to the historic Perot Theatre this Saturday evening October 22. It's going to be a night of fun and amazement as you see nine top dog athletes perform fantastic tricks in Mutts Gone Nuts.
All these talented dogs came from shelters and rescues and are now the stars of the show. You'll see them perform tricks, dances, and more.
According to the press release;
Veteran comedy team Scott and Joan Houghton joined forces with dog trainer Samantha Valle and comedian Jonathan Burns in 2014 to create Mutts Gone Nuts, an action-packed comedy where dogs are the biggest stars. Deemed a must-see by the Washington Post, these four-legged entertainers—including what they’ve coined the “highest jumping dog in the universe,” two Guinness World Champions, a hilarious “six pound Pomeranian Pikachu mix,” and more—perform daring feats, dances and more.
It all takes place at the Perot at 5 PM this Saturday, October 22 thanks to the Texarkana Regional Arts & Humanities Council.
TRAHC has also scheduled other dog activities during the day leading up to the show:
- Free Drop-In Dog Art Spectacular, 1-3 p.m., Regional Arts Center
- Dog Food Drive
- Dog Adoption Meet & Greet, 1-3 p.m., ArtsPark
This show is for dog lovers of all ages. The great thing about this show is how the dogs have been trained. According to the Mutts Gone Nuts team, the behaviors that made the former owners of these dogs give them up to shelters is the exact reason these dogs are so talented.
The trainers observed the dogs' personalities and worked on tricks that were specific to their behaviors. It was all positive reinforcement training with toys and treats. Lots of treats!
Tickets for Mutts Gone Nuts start at $15 up to $50 VIP tickets. VIP tickets include a meet and greet with the dogs. Student discounts are available too. You can purchase tickets online at perottheatre.org or call the Perot Theatre box office at (903) 792-4992.
