A SELLOUT performance last year, be sure to get your tickets early for this "back by popular demand" show for THREE straight years!
Imagine nine of the world’s most talented four-legged performers in an uproariously funny, comedy dog spectacular and you get Mutts Gone Nuts! The allstar lineup includes Feather, the Guinness world record holder for highest jumping canine, National Champion Frisbee dogs, a hilarious six pound Pomeranian Pikachu mix, and a host of previously discarded dogs that will dance, prance, flip, and skip their way right in to your heart. The family friendly show runs about 75 minutes and was created by veteran comedy team Scott and Joan Houghton, who performed their duo act ‘Jessie & James’ on variety stages from Tokyo to Las Vegas. In 2014, The Houghtons joined forces with some of the country's top dog trainers, world class comedian Jonathan Burns and eight adorable pound puppies to create an action packed, comedy dog spectacular.
Mutts Gone Nuts’ dogs were all adopted from shelters or rescues. Sometimes the very behavior that drove the previous owner to relinquish the dog, becomes the dog’s star quality. Mutts Gone Nuts’ trainers use ‘positive’ force-free training methods. They look for the dog’s natural talents by getting to know their individual personalities. Once they find out what the dog likes to do, they reinforce those behaviors with treats and/or toys. Co-producer and emcee, Scott Houghton says “I feel lucky to have come into dog training at a time when force-free, positive training is the gold standard”. Positive training not only helps build the trust bond between you and your dog but it makes it fun for the dog and the trainer. When dogs perform behaviors they are naturally inclined to do, they are happiest. When not on tour, Mutts Gone Nuts’ furry cast members have the run of three fenced acres, and of course they all live in the house (some even sleep in their bed).
Deemed “A must see!” by the Washington Post the dogs will not only amaze you, they’ll steal your heart, and maybe your socks! Mutts Gone Nuts is sure to win Best in Show!Read More
