Why hire Atka, the AMAZING Eskie!?
Atka is a highly trained performing tricks dog who has done shows at many different venues including: corporate events, special events, birthday parties, educational seminars, nursing homes, & military events. He has also been featured on Animal Planet's hit TV series, "Dogs 101”, & at the AKC “Meet the Breeds” event at the Javits Center in NYC. Our performances are about a 1/2 hr long, can be trimmed or extended as needed, & are interactive - pulling audience members in for some of the tricks. We have 2 dogs as part of our show. We're located in southern Jersey & can travel locally. Direct email & videos of his tricks & past performances can be found easily on YouTube, Facebook, etc.
Atka is a 9-year-old American Eskimo Dog who is not only proficient in many different tricks, but is also a Therapy Dog, with 5 different talent agents who get him work in the advertising field for commercials and print ads.
As the National Chairman for the Public Education Committee for our breed's parent club, the American Eskimo Dog Club of America (the club that is responsible for our dogs' breed's history and future and works directly with the AKC), we also hold educational seminars to teach children both dog safety and knowledge about the Eskie breed.
Atka is an entertainer extraordinaire, capturing the hearts of all who meet him. He takes his jobs as an entertainer, Therapy Dog, and educator very seriously, giving each area 200% of himself in each role he plays.
Atka makes sure that he does not neglect his elderly and infirm friends at the nursing home he visits every month, despite all his activities. He has been able to bring catatonic residents out of their state, motivate stroke victims to move, and induce smiles and happy memories to all he comes in contact with.
At the military bases, he donates his time to wounded and ill soldiers to offer them a few moments of comfort and joy, and extends it to their families, as well.
He wins over young and old alike, with his gentle, friendly demeanor, and his incredibly soft fur that has been described by little girls as being "as soft as an angel."
At shows, he wows audiences with his tricks, and shows them some of the things they can also do with their own dogs to strengthen their relationships. After all, dogs just want to please and be Man's Best Friend.
He is a seasoned performer for all venue sizes and environments, from smaller birthday parties, to thousands of screaming spectators in arenas, back down to studios with high-def cameras inches from him.
When you book Atka, the AMAZING Eskie, you will be guaranteed a fun, informative, and delightful show. We bring all our own equipment, and are able to accommodate both intimate and large venues easily. We look forward to hearing from you!
