“For the past 2 years I have had the opportunity to use The Marvelous Mutts here at the Mississippi Valley Fair, in Davenport, Iowa. They were a delight to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate to have them back again. Each show was packed and exciting. They are a great family show!”
— Bob Fox, CFE General Manager, Mississippi Valley Fair
The Dixie Classic Fair is proud to be associated with Marvelous Mutts! Kara & Nadja and the crew do a great job entertaining our crowds and are easy to work with. Their show is first class and the dogs really seem to enjoy what they are doing. The Marvelous Mutts is fast becoming a staple entertainment of our fair and I highly recommend them to any fair considering a quality dog show.
— David Sparks, CFE, Fair Director, Dixie Classic Fair
When looking to book acts for our park we want to have family friendly, fun and educational. Marvelous Mutts is all three plus so much more! The trainers are professional and friendly and love interacting with the crowd. This is not ‘just a job’ for them…it is their passion and it shows. Everyone leaves these shows with smiles on their faces (even the dogs). It is a tail waggin' great time for everyone involved.
— Amy Mearkle, Director of Marketing & Events DelGrosso’s Park & Laguna Splash
It's a Grand Slam!!! One of the best additions we've made to the farm. We have five sets of bleachers and each performance is standing room only. The Marvelous Mutts are wonderful to work with, the dogs and Kara & Nadja.
— John & Sue Roba, Roba Family Farms
We have had the pleasure of having The Marvelous Mutts show at our county fair for the past two years. The team is very easy to work with and the show is nothing less than fabulous! Every time The Marvelous Mutts show is on, it's standing room only!

“If anyone is ever thinking of hiring you, I do not think they could make a better choice. You are consummate professionals! You bring great enthusiasm and have great performances at EVERY show. In our case, we were having trouble getting you enough seating to accommodate the people watching.”
— Chris Long, Event Manager, Prince William County Fair
“The Marvelous Mutts aren’t just talented performers, they were all rescued from various animal shelters across the country. The Marvelous Mutts and their trainers, Nadja Palenzuela and Kara Gilmore, like to educate the public about the great potential in shelter dogs, spreading awareness on the importance of pet adoption.”
— At Carowinds, June 2014
The Marvelous Mutts Canine Spectacular put on over a week's worth of shows at the 2014 Greeley Stampede in Greeley, Colorado. Fun, family entertainment provided by agility dogs, disc dogs, and dock-diving dogs.

“Nadja and Kara know what it takes to entertain a crowd. They had everyone in the convention center screaming our sponsors name during the dock diving portion of the show. We loved it!”
— Eric Udler, Super Pet Expo, Edison, NJ
“For several years the Mental Health Foundation has hosted Paws for a Cause at the Plaza. Nadja has a wonderful way with each of the dogs in the team and gets them to do some amazing tricks. The team brings great enjoyment to one and all! They are the BEST as is their team leader!”
— Judy Burgess, Mental Health Foundation
The Kankakee County Fair has enjoyed having The Marvelous Mutts at our facility for the past two years. They were a crowd favorite the first year and we were blessed to have them return for the second year in a row. Their show is very professional and enjoyed by all fair patrons. If you have a chance to book this show we strongly encourage you to do so. Thank you to Kara Gilmore and her team for two fabulous years of entertainment.
— Tammy Focken, Treasurer/Manager, Kankakee County Fair
All of The Marvelous Mutts were adopted from shelters and rescues and do their best to show that rescued dogs can thrill audiences everywhere they perform.
