Disney to Feature Local Working Dogs

It's a dogs live will bill farmer(Franklinville, NC)  Quinn and Quade, two highly trained border collies from North Carolina, will become famous this week when the Disney+ streaming service features their latest assignment: discourage the endangered Ne Ne birds away from a busy airport in Hawaii.  The dog duo was trained by Kuykendall’s Border Collies, a Franklinville-based company that trains dogs to humanely deter a variety of fowl from unsuitable lands.  Their Hawaiian exploits will be featured on the popular Disney+ series, “It’s a Dog’s Life”, Friday, July 17.

“We are thrilled that the Disney folks wanted to showcase our dogs doing what they do best – working to keep birds and people safe,” said Kody Kuykendall, an executive with Goose Masters.  “My family has been training Border Collies for more than 50 years, and this broadcast will give viewers a good idea of how that training pays off when our dogs are called into action.”

Each week, “It’s A Dog Life”, features talented working canines from across the country.  The series is hosted by Bill Farmer, who voices Pluto, Goofy, and many other Disney characters.
