It is a format that offers both learning and fun. The pups’ abilities and experiences resonate with so many children around the world which helps audiences identify with them. We know that children and parents alike will love experiencing their favourite pups live on stage,” says Danielle Tanton, Location Based Experiences Licensing Director for Nickelodeon (UK and Ireland).
