Halftime Dogs Flying Disc Show performs at sporting events all over North America. We’ve done shows for football, basketball, baseball, soccer, rugby and equestrian events, and tailor our show based on the amount of time needed, size of the performance area and type of flooring/turf. We require very little setup — it’s basically just us, the dogs, and a handful of frisbees. We are fully insured (occurrence limit $2M/aggregate limit $4M).
