Blowing Rock, N.C. – The K-9s In Flight Frisbee dogs are returning to Tweetsie Railroad this season to amaze and entertain guests with their flips and tricks. The highflying pups will be at Tweetsie Railroad July 23-25 and 28-31.
“This talented team of trainers and dogs is a fan favorite, and for good reason,” said Cathy Robbins of Tweetsie Railroad. “They perform around the country at events and on television, and we’re honored to partner with them for another season of frisbee flying fun.”
Along with jaw-dropping performances, K-9s In Flight embodies an important mission. Each of the dog entertainers has been rescued or adopted off the streets or from various shelters across the country. K-9s In Flight strives to emphasize the importance of animal adoption.
“There is a special connection between us and our four-legged friends. Our goal is to share the joy that comes from adopting an animal with audiences around the country,” said John Misita, K-9s In Flight dog trainer. “It’s a treat for us and our dogs to watch our shows impact each person in our audience, and they always leave with a smile.”
As the country’s top K-9 sports entertainers, the K-9s In Flight team has spread its mission around the country with special appearances on The Disney Channel, ESPN, Animal Planet Expo and the NFL Experience.
Performances will be each day at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m., with a 5 p.m. show on Saturdays. Shows are included in regular park admission. Seating for the shows will be first come, first served and no reservations are required.
