Spectators, children and adults alike, always leave The Marvelous Mutts’ shows with smiles on their faces … after they pick their jaws up off the ground!

The Marvelous Mutts team members have appeared on ESPN’s Great Outdoor Games, Good Morning America, The Early Show, Fox & Friends, and The Late Show with David Letterman.
