Stuart Barnes has traveled to over 100 countries working with wildlife, and his passion for the canine species has enabled him to gain an incredible understanding of everything about dogs. In countryside and corporate shows, Stuart and his team use trained and untrained sheep dogs to herd ducks, amusing and educating the audience about common dog behaviour issues and about how these can be resolved. The show demonstrates how untrained and poorly behaved dogs still have a programmed natural instinct, giving the audience a new understanding of the Way of the Dog.
Take a leap of faith on this fun mobile zip line.
Bramfield Primary and Preschool are hosting a nature corner in the Orangery Area.
John (Polly) Pollard has more than thirty years experience with rescued parrots and other animals and has developed a unique, totally different style of parrot entertainment with rescued macaws, cockatoos and other small parrots.
