My wife has wanted to see this show for a long time but I was reluctant...stupid me. A fantastic show. Walked away impressed in so many ways. Entertaining and informative. The dog's are superb and seem to love showing what they can do, and the staff love their dogs. We will probably see the show again on our next visit!

Lawdogs is a must visit when visiting the Granite Belt. The show is factual, entertaining, interactive & enjoyable. My husband and I had a great time. Did I tell you about the puppies? Well they are so cute & you may join them occasionally in their environment. Do go and see this show, you won't be disappointed!

So good. Wonderful information about the training of these special security and also detection dogs. Great show, and added attraction of puppy cuddles as well. Do yourselves a favour - and support this endeavour as well.
