Provied/‘Mutts Gone Nuts’ features nine of the world’s most talented dogs that are trained with positive, force-free training by veteran comedy team Scott and Joan Houghton.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP – Nine of the world’s most talented four-legged performers will dance, prance and skip their way into the hearts of the audience during “Mutts Gone Nuts” 2 p.m. Saturday, April 13 at Stockton University’s Performing Arts Center.

The show takes dogs that were adopted from shelters and rescues and makes them superstars on the stage. The all-star lineup includes Feather, the Guinness World Record holder for highest jumping canine; National Champion Frisbee dogs; a hilarious six-pound Pomeranian Pikachu mix; and a host of other dogs.

The dogs were trained with positive, force-free training methods by veteran comedy team Scott and Joan Houghton, who performed their duo act “Jessie & James” on a variety of stages from Tokyo to Las Vegas. In 2014, the Houghtons joined forces with some of the country’s top dog trainers, world-class comedian Jonathan Burns and adorable pound puppies to create an action-packed comedy dog spectacular.
