Check back as the show develops
One of the most fun and exciting reasons to attend The World of Pets Expo and Educational Experience is the unique array of animal entertainers and shows. Almost all of our entertainment is free with admission, so for less than the price of a movie ticket you’ll get to experience pet entertainment that will excite you, amaze you and make you laugh!
We encourage families to bring their children and well socialized pets to the Expo, our entertainment is suitable for everyone ages 1 to 100. There is something that everyone can enjoy, from pet comedians, displays of extreme agility, hands on animal experiences, cats, mice, gerbil shows and even a parade of dog breeds. There is enough to do to fill your entire day with exciting animal and pet themed entertainment.
Johnny Peers, Muttville Comix
Sit! Stay! Get ready to howl! Johnny Peers and his personality-plus canines are coming to tickle your funny bone! A Ringling Brothers Clown College graduate, Johnny Peers has been working with dogs since he got his first puppy, Freckles, a Beagle mix, from the Humane Society in 1972. Since their 1980 debut, the Muttville Comix have appeared on David Letterman, Primetime Live and Circus of the Stars, and at Disneyland, Busch Gardens, the Big Apple Circus, the Royal Hanneford Circus, even The White House!
A show for the whole family and the dog lover in all of us, the show stars mostly dogs rescued from shelters or pounds, like Daphne, the world’s only skateboarding Basset Hound; Squeaky, the ladder climbing Fox Terrier; Mr. Pepe, who only responds to commands in Spanish; and Sir Winston, the Pointer mix who only answers to “Sir.” The 2003 Animal Planet Pet Star Winners, the Providence Journal-Bulletin calls the show, “…a truly funny, slapstick dog act.”

Big Air Wave – The Long Jump for Dogs and the most popular of the three disciplines. The dog has up to 40’ of dock to build up speed and jump as far as they can. Distance is measured where the tail meets the body.
Extreme Vertical Wave – The High Jump for Dogs. The dog is allowed 20’ of the dock to run and jump for the bumper, which is hung 8’ away from the dock at a height starting at 5’.
Speed Retrieve Wave – The Sprint for Dogs. They run 20’ down the dock, jump big, and swim as fast as they can to grab the duck while being timed.
Showcased on ABC, ESPN, The Outdoor Channel and Animal Planet, DockDogs® has found its way into the homes and hearts of millions and is currently the fastest growing sport on four legs. Come watch nonstop action as Chesapeake DockDogs® compete in Wave after Wave of events, with finals on Sunday. Perhaps you have a toy driven dog that loves to jump into the water.
