The North Dakota State Fair was our first state fair of the season. We are currently on our 2009 State Fair Tour which runs mid-July through the first week of October. The “Extreme Canines Stunt Dog Show” is celebrating 10 years performing the most high energy stunt dog show in the world! We were honored to be invited back to the North Dakota State Fair for 2009. This years state fair production included 13 stunt dogs and three star performers; Chris Perondi (show creator) along with Samantha Valle and Usman Riaz from Long Island, New York. This years addition included four of Samantha’s top dogs along with two new stunt dogs professionally trained by Usman.

It was a pleasure performing for the very enthusiastic crowds in Minot, North Dakota. Everyone we met was so friendly and loved our stunt dogs in action. Jaws dropped when Samantha Valle brought some cool new moves to the fair. Some of the new tricks include dogs walking on their front paws across the field, dogs dancing backwards while circling around their trainer, back flips, dogs limping on cue, reverse chest vaults, body bounces, spinning back stalls, and the new tandem “Trick of the day” which features tandem “paw-stands” by Action Jackson and Rocket Ruiz.

We brought back the crowd favorite “Extreme Canines Triathlon” TM which was invented by Chris Perondi himself. Super Sonic represented the red team once again this year and Dynamite (trained by Samantha Valle) flew through the triathlon at record breaking speeds as she was cheered on by the yellow team. New for this year was team high-jumping!  The two big jumpers rocked it out: Rocket Ruiz vs. Flashy Ferrari. It was “Fur Flying Family Fun” TM for the whole family!

    Yeah Abby has been a really good girl. She still isn’t a starter in my outdoor shows. But she is an amazing pre-show dog, is great on an indoor stage, and is perfect for our meet and greet after the shows. 😉 Everyone loves Abby and wants to scoop her up as their own! haha! In the meantime, Abby says *woof, woof Amanda!*
