Get ready to put on your dancing shoes and kick up your heels because dog dancing and dog tricks are just two of the many attractions at Pups in the Park in Wynnum on May 21.

Dog sports competitors Sharon Clark and Christine Smith will be working together to stage two demonstrations featuring their talented border collies, and you’ll want to dance along with them.

The first will be a Dances With Dogs demonstration during which Sharon and her three border collies, Holly, Gift and young Banjo, will perform some of their breathtaking routines to music.

Sharon’s older dog, Holly, is an Australian champion at the sport and seeing the connection between Sharon and her dogs as they perform a routine is really special. What makes it all the more amazing is that Holly has been deaf for many years and Sharon uses hand signals to communicate.

She will be supported by Christine and her border collie Tweed, one of the first dogs in Australia to win an advanced tricks sport title. The pair have only just started competing in Dances With Dogs but because of their advanced tricks background they will also be able to showcase a high-level routine.

Later in the day, Sharon and Christine will combine to do a tricks demonstration and show you step-by-step how you can teach your dog some of the easier tricks at home.

For scheduled times to watch Sharon and Christine perform with their dogs.
