3 Shows Daily, at the Wisconsin Valley Fair, July 29-August 3, 2014

It is the most entertaining show of its kind! The “Extreme Canines Stunt Dog Show” TM is a live entertainment hit. Chris Perondi has been entertaining audiences of all sizes since 1999. He has produced over 3,500 shows in his career. Over 2,000 have been ground entertainment at some of the largest fairs in the country including the Iowa State Fair, Missouri State Fair, Los Angeles County Fair, State Fair of Virginia, South Carolina State Fair, Tulsa State Fair, MontanaFair, Alaska State Fair, and many more. In addition, Chris has produced thousands of stage shows for major theme parks, theaters, and science centers in the United States. 

Chris Perondi is known as the “Stunt Dog Guy” TM (www.stuntdogguy.com) and he is proud to celebrate his 10th year anniversary this season. Each year he and his team members deliver new stunts and behaviors to captivate the audience. It is always “Fur Flying Family Fun” TM for the whole family! The marketability of the show is unmatched with real appeal for any type of sponsor. 

Perondis cast of performers and dogs will delight people of all ages. Every production includes two or more professional performers with around a dozen talented pups. The show is set with an original theme and it brings forth pet adoption awareness. All the dogs have been rescued from pounds and shelters from across the country. The mission is to promote animal rescue, pet adoption, encourage spay/neutering, and encourage people to spend more time with their pets. 

The audience will be involved with interactive crowd participation. It’s not just a show, it’s an experience! Audience members will chant “Dog gone fun!” and be involved in the excitement of the production. The show will include trick showdowns that will be judged and won by audience applause. Do not forget the athletic feats! From world class Frisbee catching dogs, weave pole racing, the one-of-a-kind triathlon, big air stunts, comedy antics, juggling, to the famous high jumping phenomenon. You will witness the most athletic and smartest dogs in the world. 

These stars have been featured on the Oprah Show, Tonight Show with Jay Leno, the Ellen Show, Animal Planets Pet Stars, Fox Sports “You Gotta See This!”, and more. They have also starred in commercials and have been showcased on the news and in newspapers all across the country. 

Chris Perondi truly delivers a masterpiece; the famous “Extreme Canines Stunt Dog Show” is a hit!
