Real Canine Entertainment Loved Across Ohio and Beyond

This Ain't No Dog and Pony Show: It's a Dog Show with No Ponies.

We've put together a fantastic team of performance dogs that have something for everyone. From stunts and agility demonstrations to comical performance, the pups at Team Zoom love to entertain. The other half of our team, the handlers, are just as passionate about caring for our furry friends! There's nothing they love more than working with their dogs each day, creating an incredible bond, and then sharing that with the world. And, you can imagine how much our dogs enjoy running, jumping, and performing to the delight of captivated audiences throughout the Midwest and beyond.

Take a moment to get to know our incredible team – Team Zoom!

Wombat - Current

A silly name for a silly puppy. Wombat may be small, but he is mighty. That's why his nickname is Wombat the Warrior! He hasn't decided what his main act will be yet, but we know it will be crazy. This little man has no fear.

The flyer, for sure - Vibe is a small, deaf Border Collie. But, that hasn't stopped her from learning lots of tricks and having fun! She loves to play Frisbee, jump rope, perform agility, and go for swims.
