Stage highlights

Join Farmer Dave and the Muttley Crew daily in the Demo Ring for his popular K9 Superwall and Temptation Alley shows.  

K9 Superwall 

One of the most iconic outback events is the dog high jump and K9 Superwall takes it to a whole new level, being a standout crowd favourite performance at the Sydney Royal Show and a main arena night show performance at the Perth Royal Show. Run by a handler, each dog competes to jump up an ever-increasing vertical wall to decide a winner – which keeps the audience on edge. This event also has high-energy music and educational components. Heights attained by the dogs near 10ft /3m. 

Temptation Alley  

Temptation Alley is an individual timed challenge whereby the dog is down one end of the arena held by a handler and the owner is down the opposite end behind a finish line with the course covered in several ‘alleys’ of plush toys, treats, balls, chew toys, tug ropes and other doggie favourites. Will the dog race directly to their owner in 2 seconds flat or will they do more Uturns than a Victorian in Canberra, to the delight of the audience.
