The Center for the Arts and Chris Perondi, the “Stunt Dog Guy™,” present “Stunt Dog Experience™”

The Center for the Arts brings Stunt Dog Experience ™ to the Veterans Auditorium in Grass Valley for two performances on Friday, November 22, 2019.


Director Chris Perondi, the Stunt Dog Guy, has been entertaining audiences of all sizes since 1999. His famous stunt dogs are out of this world! He has produced over 9,000 shows; over 4,500 have been stage shows for performing arts theaters and major theme parks, including Knotts Berry Farm and Six Flags of America.


The Stunt Dog Guy and his unique cast of performers and dogs guarantee high-energy excitement from beginning to end. During this “Stunt Dog Experience,” you will witness some of the most incredible stunts and behaviors ever performed by dogs. The Experience includes amazing tricks, big air stunts, comedy antics, dancing dogs, athletic feats, and more. 


This one-of-a-kind show  highlights pet adoption awareness. All the dogs have been rescued from shelters across the country. The mission is to promote animal rescue, pet adoption, spay and neutering, and to encourage people to spend more time with their pets. 


Don’t forget “Diggy the Dog” the human-sized canine mascot, who is always trying to be a part of the show in some silly way. He will try to convince everyone that he is the real star of the show. During the process, you will laugh as he tries his paws at jumping rope like his four-legged co-stars. He will also beg to perform Perondi’s famous daredevil stunt. Can Diggy jump as high as the four-legged stunt dog? You will soon find out!


Every show includes interactive crowd participation. It’s not just a show, it’s an experience! Audience members will chant “higher!” and “doggone fun!” and be involved in the excitement of the production. The audience will be split into two teams and everyone will cheer on their team of dogs during the “Golden Bone Showdown.” The trick dog challenge will be judged and won by audience applause; and the athletic challenges will be won based on speed, accuracy, and leaping ability. From world-class Frisbee catching dogs, the three sport “Stunt Dog Triathlon,” and weave pole racing, to the famous high-jumping phenomenon, youwill be blown away by the most agile dogs in the world!


These canine stars have been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show, David Letterman, the Tonight Show, the Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Queen Latifah show, Animal Planet’s Pet Stars, the CBS Early Show, and worldwide during the annual Rose Parade.. They have also starred in commercials and have been featured on the news and in magazines across the country. The Stunt Dog GuyT truly delivers a theatrical masterpiece.
