Canadian K9 Detection Dogs - You Can't Hide Anything From Them!
Saturday 2:00PM & Sunday 12:00PM

These amazing dogs are coming back to the show - don't miss this opportunity to see these highly skilled dogs in action! A dog's sense of smell is said to be a thousand times more sensitive than that of humans. A dog has more than 220 million olfactory receptors in its nose which are responsible for the detection of odor molecules, while humans have only 5 million. Think you can hide something from your dog? Think again! Because of this keen sense of smell, specially trained dogs are used in search and rescue missions and in the detection of narcotics and explosives. Come and see Canadian K9's teams performing a demonstration of their detection skills! You'll be amazed at what they can do! After 15 years of service, Canadian K9 knows detection: their Government-validated group of Detection Teams provide services including explosives and narcotics detection services for visiting cruise ships, with clients such as Disney and Holland America Line; servicing various environments such as rentals; keeping drug activities away from investments; and maintaining narcotics free work camps in the far north. With their Security Provision department, Investigations Division and Security Consulting services, they are the largest full service security firm in Canada.

Nose Work - Learn How Your Dog Can Be A Nose Work Star
Saturday @ 2:30PM, Sunday @ 12:30PM

It's a brand new dog sport that started in California in mid-2000s by professional detection dog handlers. It is an activity for all dogs of every age, breed and ability as well as for handlers of any age or experience. It is a no-aversives, no-discipline, no-guilt, fun activity that teams a dog and handler to search for odours. Students start by learning the foundation in a controlled fun environment where the dog is encouraged to find food. As odour is introduced, the teams work their dogs in four elements: interior, exterior, containers and vehicles. Students can expect welcome changes in their dog's behaviour and the benefits to the canine-human partnership can be life-changing.

Donna Toews (CPDT-KA, CNWI) has been participating in NoseWork since December 2009 and proudly brought the sport to Canada in 2011. She and her dog Edge are the FIRST International Team to reach Elite1 status with NACSW. Join the fun!

Over the past 3 years we have performed Christmas shows at several Seniors Homes in South Surrey as well as the 2016 Cloverdale Rodeo Parade. We have even taken our show on the road and performed at the WAGS fund raising event in Whistler. The dogs seem to like performing as much as we do because they really pick up their pace when they hear cheering and applause from the crowds. Come out and watch the Newfies and Goldens strut their stuff- you will be amazed at what these huge dogs can do. The performance is followed by a brief puppy obedience routine and then an opportunity to get up close and personal with our performers with a meet and greet at ringside.
