Top Jocks

Karen Sandford — Production Manager/Host

An experienced professional trainer and lifelong dog lover, Karen has also distinguished herself as a formidable competitor in a wide variety of dog sports, including agility, rally obedience and dock diving.

Karen’s quick wit and natural ebullience—not to mention her flair for public speaking—make her the perfect host for the WoofJocks. As the team’s media point person, she’s made numerous appearances on shows like City’s Breakfast Television, CP24 Breakfast, Global’s Morning Show, and others.

Karen’s dogs are routinely featured in WoofJocks performances.

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

With decades of experience in the staging and production of live entertainment, Brian O’Connor is a consummate behind-the-scenes professional. His theatrical expertise is felt in all aspects of staging, sound and lighting of WoofJocks’ performances.

Brian enjoys competing in flyball, dock jumping and disc with his Border Collie-Terrier cross "YOLO". During WoofJocks’ shows, Brian will occasionally step out from behind the mixing console to perform an always-impressive disc routine.

In 2003 Brian became a co-owner of K9 Central Pet Resort Training and Spa Inc., one of Canada’s premier canine care facilities.

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.
