Everyone loves dogs these days, and our dogs are not only extreme stunt dogs and professional athletes, they are loveable pets that adore meeting your audience, too. Your guests will laugh, cheer, and have a blast watching big air stunts, frisbee freestyle routines, high jumping, incredible agility, flyball racing, and dock diving.  

We increase return guest visits and overall attendance numbers at Fairs, Festivals and Expositions. Our audiences are encouraged to take photos to share on Facebook, and tell all their friends about the amazing Canine Stars show at your event.

The Canine Stars ground act for Fairs, Festivals and Pet Expos is paws-down the fan favorite Dog Show in the business!

DIVING DOGS

DOCK DIVING SHOW

WATER POOL - Summer outdoor event guests LOVE the SPLASH ZONE at the end of the pool...our audiences can get up close and get wet!

Our water pool requires 25,000 gallons of potable water. Pool should be filled the day before shows by tanker truck or via fire hydrant and hoses.


BALL PIT POOL - We invented the world's only Ball Pit Pool in 2016 for indoor events and temporary setups like intermission or stage shows. Quick to set up and teardown, this is our PORTABLE innovation. It was featured on America's Got TalentNickelodeon...watch the video below.

PROMOTING PET ADOPTION

INCREDIBLE RESCUE DOGS

Any dog, of any breed, of any age, with any past – can achieve greatness. We support and promote rescue & adoption.

Our aim is to inspire and educate youth. We share heartwarming rescue stories about our dogs, and we demonstrate how TEAMWORK makes the impossible possible for the “underdog.”

WORLD-CLASS DOG TRAINERS

PROFESSIONAL TEAM

All of the dogs are individually owned and loved by their trainers – they are family first! We all started as "normal" pet owners, turned into crazy dog show competitors, and now entertain professionally with our dogs.

The Canine Stars was founded in 2012 by Keri Caraher, President. Keri and Ethan Wilhelm, Vice President, have been performing and competing with their dogs for over 20 years.
