The Dog Bowl - back with new tricks, new arena and a new partnership

Calgary – The Dog Bowl is back to showcase the Canine Stars who will be performing new tricks to larger audiences with more seating than ever before. The Stampede Corral will be the go-to place for Stampede guests looking for a fun time, with adorably-talented dogs.

“This year, arena-style seating allows guests to view the Canine Stars performance from every angle,” explains Susan Beirnes, Calgary Stampede Programming Design Manager. “With never-seen-before tricks, the Stampede Corral will be filled with pure excitement.”    

Adding even more enthusiasm to the performances, and for the first time in Canine Stars history, the award-winning Stampede Showband Drumline Alumni, will begin every performance by introducing the Canine Stars with a high-energy welcome line.

Everyone is invited to cheer on their favourite dogs to the beat of the Showband Drumline Alumni in the Stampede Corral. With performances every day of Stampede, all of the Dog Bowl Canine Stars performances are included with your admission to Stampede Park.
