Buffalo Zoo Unleashes New Show: Canine Champions for Conservation

Various types of dog shows are popular on TV, though it’s not everyday that dog-lovers get to attend one in person. But that’s all about to change, thanks to the production efforts of The Buffalo Zoo and Stunt Dog Productions, which are currently showcasing a new dog-centric exhibition throughout the summer.

What is most unusual about this show is that, not only are the starring dogs “rescues,” the dogs also help to tell the story of the importance of wildlife conservation, hence the catchy title, “Canine Champions for Conservation.”

This show is demonstrates succinctly our collective love for all animals, whether in the wild, at The Zoo, or at home as part of the family unit.

The trainers and trained dogs have been approved by Buffalo Zoo’s diligent animal care, health, and welfare teams. These teams ensure that all protocols are followed, guaranteeing the health and safety of the animals and the audience.

This brand new interactive show, included with Zoo admission, features:

A Remarkable Lineup of Rescue Dogs: Witness the incredible abilities of these canine companions as they perform awe-inspiring stunts, agility courses, and impressive routines that showcase their athleticism and charm.

Meet and Greet Opportunities: After the show, get up close and personal with these furry heroes! Guests can interact with the dogs and their trainers, and even learn more about responsible pet ownership and adoption. This connection provides a memorable experience and fosters a deeper appreciation for the bond between people and animals.
