We finished strong at the New York State Fair in Syracuse on September 7th! Our performances took place just outside the grandstand in the area they called the “Adventure Zone”. Our act was one of four in the zone. We were setup right between the wine tent and the Bear Mountain show. Across from our setup featured the “Wake Board Jam” and next to them you could be mesmerized by the “Pirates of the Sky” acrobats.

Samantha Valle was the big star and received huge attention while performing in her home state. I’m not sure if they were drawn to her stellar hairdo or the new dog tricks she was pulling off. I’m thinking it was a little bit of both! Valle started with the Extreme Canines Stunt Dog show back in 2005. She was brought in as an apprentice trainer for the World’s of Fun theme park production in Kansas City, MO. She currently travels nationwide with our team performing for state fairs, theme parks, theater shows, and corporate events. Valle’s dogs are some of our best in the world and she is definitely one of our top team members. Valle exclaimed, “The New York State Fair was one of the best show experiences I’ve ever had”!

Valle has recently taught her dogs to do some very extreme tricks including dogs walking on their front paws across the field, walking backwards, circle backwards, and many more advanced behaviors performed from a distance. Valle newest stunt showcases her dog “Rocket Ruiz” pedaling a tandem bike. She debuted this extreme trick on the new Animal Planet TV show called “Superfetch” set to premiere on October 3rd. (More details on Superfetch and it’s host and former team member Zak George coming soon!)

    I enjoyed watching your show at the Tennessee State Fair in Nashville this past weekend. Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for all you do for the dogs. They are amazing! I hope to see your show again next year.

    Thanks Katie! I really appreciate that! 😉 I wish the best for the TN State Fair. I heard rumors that they might close it down. I hope they get all the political stuff sorted out as that would be a real shame. Talk to you later. Have a great weekend!
