Top Jocks

Karen Sandford — Production Manager/Host

A lifelong dog-lover, Karen became a professional trainer in 2003. She has competed successfully in various dog sports (agility, obedience, rally obedience and dock diving) and performed with numerous shows, including the Superdogs and early incarnations of the WoofJocks. Karen eventually rose to become WoofJocks team captain, where her natural ebullience, humour, and flair for public speaking made her the perfect choice as host.

Brian O'Connor — Production Manager/Sound & Set Technician

With over 25 years of experience, Brian O’Connor has established himself as a consummate behind-the-scenes professional in the world of canine performance shows. Brian began his career with the International Superdogs, where his responsibilities involved the development and execution of the technical aspects of shows (sound, lighting, staging, props, etc). He was a member of the creative-technical team that played a pivotal role in the launch of the Superdogs’ theatrical production called "Hollywoof” in 1992. The success of this production resulted in tours of major venues to crowds of over a million people a year across North America.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Positivity + Inclusivity

All of the dogs you will see on stage are our family pets. These are the same dogs that sleep on our beds & curl up on the couch with us.

Positive reinforcement

All WoofJocks handlers must adhere to positive-reinforcement methods, both in their training and treatment of dogs. Correction-based methods will not be tolerated under any circumstances.

Zero-tolerance policy for discrimination

From puppies & seniors to dogs with physical disabilities, we will not discriminate against any dog who has demonstrated an interest and ability to perform with us.

We do not believe in a mandatory retirement age. Indeed, we have a passionate belief that dogs of all ages, breeds and backgrounds add something special to our shows.
