"Visitors to this year's Mystery Creek Fieldays were treated to a fine display of dog training from Chelsea Marriner and her team. Hundreds of dazzled onlookers watched as Chelsea's dogs were put through their paces, performing an array of tricks from fetching cold drinks from the chilly bin, washing their own paws and holding a flag."
We feed and recommend
We have previously performed for numerous events nationwide, including several very prestigious ones. We have received excellent reviews from all our past performances, from a huge range of audiences, event staff and events. We often receive return invites, and we have also been invited to perform internationally.
My highly trained dogs perform an amazing variety of tricks which are humorous, unusual and incredibly clever! We performed on NZ's Got Talent in 2008, and 2012 and we have appeared on TV on several other occasions as well.
Our dynamic 35 minute show is top class entertainment at its very best, proven to appeal to any audience type and age. The Dogmatic show is the only one of its kind in New Zealand, and it's the perfect addition to almost any type of event.
More information on our performances is available here.

About Ultimate Canines
I have been working with dogs since I was 2 1/2 years old, when I took over Dad's puppy that he brought home. This marked the beginning of a passion for training dogs and working with them.
When I was 4, I saw Wonder Dogs on TV and was instantly inspired to teach my dog some skills like that. I began competing in dog agility when I was 7 years old, and have never looked back!
I now have a great team who all have a large range of tricks. I compete extensively in agility and and occasionally sheep dog trials. You can read more about my dogs here or visit my Cliffhanger Kennels website.
I enjoy working my dogs and teaching them things. You only get out what you put in, and if you want the results, there's a lot of hard work, patience and time required to get there in the end!
The dogs are all trained using positive reinforcement techniques and have a great love of showing off their skills and going through their paces, whether it's agility or tricks.
