The Canine Stars Stunt Dog Show is an exciting extreme sports production for family entertainment – highlighting popular dog sports such as dock diving, freestyle frisbee disc, flyball racing, high jumping, and dog agility with multiple breeds of dogs and mixes who have been rescued or adopted from shelters.

Keri Caraher and Ethan Wilhelm began competing in dog sports with their personal pet dogs in 2001 in Colorado. They competed across North America at the highest levels in Agility, Flyball racing, Disc Dog, and Dock Diving, including earning top placements at National and World Champion events. In 2005 they began performing professionally with their dogs at Theme Parks, Fairs, Pet Expos and Zoos, including tours across Canada and the Virgin Islands.

In January 2012, The Canine Stars team was created to bring our amazing rescued dogs to even larger audiences, while emphasizing and encouraging pet adoption and promoting a strong interactive bond with man’s best friend.
