Since it's creation the drill team has already performed at the Sussex Country State Fair, the Somerset Pet Expo, and a Veteran's Day event in support of our local veterans.

Interested in spreading the word about pet and owner relationships, doggie manners, and the proper way to handle dogs in public? Contact us for a demo.

We can perform at children's hospitals, veteran's homes, assisted living facilities, church groups, boy/girl scouts, etc.

The Puppy-Wuppy Drill Team is composed of our Dog Trainers and Clients who have a desire to educate the public on the benefits of having a well mannered dog in society.  Their time is volunteered and they perform a choreographed routine with our dogs, demonstrating basic obedience skills, proper social handling, and good manners.  The team has performed at numerous functions including the NJ State Fair, the Boy Scouts Badge award, Nursing Homes, Local Parades, and Pet Expo's.  Email us at to have our team come to your event.
