K9 Quackers Sheepdog Display

Richard will be demonstrating his sheepdog and duck herding display in the main arena at Paws in the Park Spring Show. This is a favourite for audiences both young and old and is very entertaining. Watch how Richard and his sheepdog 'Sidekicks' herd the ducks through various obstacles such as the Tunnel Of Doom and the Slippery Slide.

This sheepdog duck herding display is duck-u-tainment at its very best. With his own commentary, Richard engages the crowd with each set of ducks’ personalities. The audience is encouraged to participate throughout the demonstration and children are encouraged to come into the ring to form their own obstacles for the ducks to negotiate!

Richard will also be in the arena for a second time, for a Have a Go Heelwork to Music session. This is your chance to have a go at this popular sport, so bring your dog and your dancin’ shoes!




Richard Curtis will be in the arena at our Spring show.
