Sara and The Super Collies Are Living the Dream!
We are so elated to announce that our good friends, Sara Carson and the Super Collies, will be on the Finals of America’s Got Talent Tuesday 19th, on NBC (City TV in Canada).
You may have seen the Super Collies featured on Backseat Barkers and Talent Hounds, and it’s because these pups are the most talented trick dogs in the world and very generous friends.
We have followed Sara and Hero’s incredible journey for the past 5 years. Sara told me when I first met her that she wanted to be on America’s Got Talent one day. Today, I am sitting waiting to watch her rock the Finals- woohoo!
Even as a teenager, Sara had such drive and was so determined, and she LOVED Hero. It was easy to see her talent and her passion for training, performing, photography and graphic design.
Even as a puppy, Hero was already so well trained and such a special dog. Their bond was amazing. Sara never shied away from a challenge and was always ready to help me on all sorts of projects and events. She particularly helped me with training my little rescue pug Kilo with positive reward based methods though an online group, and in person. Her support was invaluable and he is a different dog today with lots of cute tricks up his sleeve.
Her journey has not always been easy or 100% smooth, but it has been incredible and the hard work is paying off.
Sara and Hero appeared on numerous big US TV shows like Letterman and thrived in the spotlight. We did local Fashion Shows, Talent and Trick Competitions and Showcases and Videos and TV segments together. Sara progressed from competitor to judge and host at Canadian Pet Expo and went on to tour in the US.
Most recently, this summer we worked on travel safety tips – see HERE, blogs and videos for The BackSeat Barkers and Talent Hounds as the Super Collies toured the US performing and teaching.
America’s Got Talent Auditions
Hero and Sara auditioned for the show on TV back in June, wowing the crowd with an elaborate routine including sword fights and a wide sample of the hundreds of tricks Hero knows. We only got to see the amazing show in August. It won over Simon Cowell, a dog lover who knows talent when he sees it. He gave Sara a big hug on stage. We were so pleased when our friends were put through to the next round, but we knew the Super Collies “Got Talent!”
They delivered this awesome routine below including Loki the Puppy to wow the audience and judges again and make it through to the semi-finals. I admit, there were cheers and tears of happiness in our house.
We met Loki just over a year ago for the first time at Canadian Pet Expo as a little puppy. He already had star quality. Look at him go!
This is a great opportunity for Sara, Hero and Loki. Congratulations, we know you’ll rock it!
Please Watch the Finals and Vote for our Heroes, the Super Collies! Let’s Make A Dream Come True.
