Rowan Public Library
Starting Monday June 28th, each branch of the Rowan Public Library will take turns hosting the fantastic â€œDare Devil Dogsâ€ as part of the 2021 Summer Reading Program â€œTails and Talesâ€.
This group of talented dogs will perform outdoors on Monday, June 28th at 10:30 am and 2:00 pm at RPL Headquarters (Salisbury); RPL South (China Grove) on Tuesday June 29; RPL East (Rockwell) on Wednesday June 30; and RPL West (Cleveland) on Thursday July 1st.
The K-9 Frisbee and Diving Show has performed at trade shows, festivals, and sporting events, including the Purina Incredible Dog Team, K-9’s in Flight, and Woofsports USA.
â€œThey are one of my favorite performance groups. It’s amazing how high the dogs can jump and how fast they can run, â€said Children’s Associate Robert Jones. “The show is a real crowd puller.”
This is the second time the Dare Devil Dogs have performed as part of an RPL summer reading Series. They first performed in 2018 and the audience loved them.
“That was a huge success,” said Jones.
While the School Age programs entertain, they also educate their audiences. After the Dare Devil Dogs perform, trainers are available to answer questions about dog training and they actively promote responsible pet ownership during the shows as many of the dogs that perform are rescue dogs. Viewers are then encouraged to sign up for a library card, if they don’t already have one, and review materials on topics they would like to learn more about – including dog training, stories about dogs, and non-fiction books about great animals.
School age programs are designed for children from kindergarten through fifth grade, although all ages are welcome. Entry is free, and attendees are encouraged to bring their favorite lounge chairs, picnic blankets, or mats. Each branch will also offer limited seating and flooring for spectators.
Children up to 8 years of age must be accompanied by a responsible supervisor (from 16 years of age). For assistance with ADA accommodations please call 704-216-8240.
