Meet our Teams!
Stunt Dog Productions teams up with only the most humane and talented dog trainers and performers in the country. The Perondi’s have brought dozens of trainers into their “Stunt Dog” family over the years and have assisted and coached numerous trainers in the industry.
All the dogs in the shows are trained using positive training methods with the use of a clicker and treat or toy motivation. Each dog has their own unique talents, individual ability, athleticism, and intelligence. We then place them in the show segments that they excel and love the most. Our dogs perform with undeniable happiness, enthusiasm, and energy.
Steve grew up with a passion for animals, especially dogs, cats, and horses. His love for training animals began with horses. He was inspired to start training dogs after he saw Chris Perondi perform in his hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma in 2010. Now, Steve has acted as a part time dog performer, part time mascot (yes, Steve plays Diggy!), and part time Stage Manager for Stunt Dog Productions for over 11 years. As the longest standing member of Stunt Dog Productions (aside from the Perondi's), Steven knows the "ins" and "outs" theater and other productions like a true professional.
Aside from the dog industry, Steve is also a professional storm chaser. In his spare time, he loves outdoor activities, such as hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, and camping.
