Alex (a.k.a. “Popeye”) and his dog trick act have performed throughout the country since 1984, with four recent appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman. Tricks include tightrope walking, ball balancing and jumping rope with the audience.

Respect for kindness toward animals is highlighted, as well as the value of a good obedience foundation and pet safety. A trainer of police dogs for more than 20 years, Alex also explains and demonstrates dog obedience, protection and narcotics detection.
