Welcome to The Bark Side!

Hire our trick dogs for your event!  We are available for big or small events and will WOW you with our amazing dogs.  Our dogs do it all! 

Contact us to discuss your project or event.


We have over 30 years of combined experience performing in dog shows all over North America, competing in dog sports and teaching dog training. Located in the Foothills just south of Calgary, we train our canine team to represent the highest standard in dog show entertainment. Our dogs have also appeared in many TV shows, commercials, movies and live theatre. We help our community by taking part in Search and Rescue efforts, with two of our dogs being certified human remains detection dogs. We are committed to work with your team to provide an outstanding production and exceptional guest experience. 

Our dogs are our family. We train them to excel at what they do and they LOVE to perform!

Our shows highlight agility, disc, tricks, freestyle dancing, high jumping, comedy, theatrics and more.
