>High-Flying Purina Incredible Dog Team will perform at MUMFEST 2011!


New Bern, NC – The high-flying Purina® Incredible Dog Team, a collection of some of the world’s most athletic canines is coming to historic downtown New Bern on October 8-9 to entertain fans at MUMFEST.

Utilizing a high-energy performance set to music, the trainers and their dogs entertain while also educating people about responsible pet care and how proper nutrition and good training can bring out the best in any dog, at any life stage.

The Team stresses the “incredible” potential in every dog, which is reflected in a number of canine team members who were adopted at animal shelters and rescue groups around the country. The athletic feats performed by the team include rolling back catches, two-legged balancing acts on the trainer’s feet and vaulting off of their trainer’s body to snare a flying disc.

In addition to the amazing Purina Incredible Dog Team, MUMFEST ’11 features Alex Clark, the super funny comedian with jaw dropping feats, the Corvette Racing Tour, King BMX Stunt Show’s of high energy ramp and flatland riding.
