The Dog AND SHEEP SHOW

Stuart Barnes is the original creator of the highly popular Dog and Duck show that now tours the UK countryside shows in the summer season. (Sheep for the 2023 season). Stuart has travelled to over 100 countries working with wildlife, and his passion for dogs has enabled him to gain an incredible understanding of everything about them and their behaviours.

 

In the Dog and Duck Show, Stuart and his amazing team use both trained and untrained sheep dogs to herd sheep, amusing and educating the audience about common dog behaviour issues and about how these can be resolved.

The show demonstrates how untrained and poorly behaved dogs still have a programmed natural instinct, giving the audience a new understanding of the way of the Dog.
