Christina Oxtoby
Arena Displays / Canine Performances

webassets/EzeRuShaiCrufts2014.JPGChristina and her dogs have performed at a large variety of shows over the years, both as a solo performance and as part of the ICC Dog Training Display Team (that Christina used to lead.) 

Performances can be at national shows or village fetes. They are also available for cabaret evenings or after dinner entertainment. Their essential requirements are - non-slip flooring, a microphone (ideally a head set mic) and a reliable sound system that will play edited CDs, (not all systems will) or music from an i-phone (you will need the correct connectors (and for outdoor shows someone to start the music.) Ideally ring sizes will be at least 20m x 20m outdoors however a smaller space is possible for cabaret performances.

Displays usually include 'quicker than a collie' and 'people agility' (involving the children in the audience) as well as Heelwork-to-Music / Freestyle (dance) performances from all of her dogs (including Crufts Freestyle Finalist Eze and Ru, The Dancing Dane!) She also demonstrates how she teaches the moves to her dogs and how to teach dogs to love working with you! If needed she can include a 'have a go' time for members of the audience and their own dogs.  

Be prepared to laugh, be amazed and inspired by the relationship that can be built with your dog. 

1 woman, 4 dogs, 5 lots of humour + music = a great show for all the family! 

Please contact Christina for more information. Prices depend upon requirements and distance. Please note that she gets booked up a long time in advance, so please book as early as possible to avoid disappointment!
