At the Greer’s Flooring America and Town Square Furnishings booths immediately following all presentations. (located on first floor in Exhibit Hall)

 

Born and raised in Evansville, IN, this design+build duo has settled in the bustling southern city of Jacksonville, FL. Raised in families with strong Midwestern values, they believe in honesty, hard work, and a positive attitude. Whitney, a design blogger and financial analyst, realized her passion wasn’t in charts and numbers, but in interior design. After a tour of duty in the U.S. military they decided to pursue their true passion. In 2013, John & Whitney began a journey with HGTV that has forever changed their outlook on life. As the Black Team on Flipping the Block, John and Whitney proved themselves in more ways than design alone! The synergy between them is evident, giving them a unique edge in operating their interior design bsuiness, 27 South Design Group. John’s military background and construction experience coupled with Whitney’s keen financial mind and creative design allows them to create beautiful spaces that function perfectly.

Being completely self-taught, they feel interior design shouldn’t be bound by traditional rules or designer price tags. Each client is different and each space is unique! They thrive on being creative and thinking outside the box. With a passion on fire for design and functionality this team knows how to get the most “bang for your buck!” With their interesting new design flair, their young and fiery spirit, and a beaming sense of pride in every detail, John and Whitney can and have accomplished the impossible time and time again!

2013 Indy Disc Dog Classic Sunday events

Dog Show Mowgli 72

Next, returning to the Home Show this year is a crowd pleasing favorite, the K9 Frisbee Crew Trick Dog Show.  Performing as part of our Family Fest this year, the K9 Crew is ready to entertain and delight both days of Home Show.

 

Saturday, April 11

Shows at 11:30 am, 2:00 pm and 4:30 pm

Sunday, April 12

Shows at 11:30 am and 2:00 pm

LOCATION: Family Fest area on Locust Street in front of the Old National Events Plaza

If we have rain or weather that would not allow an outdoor performance, all shows will be moved indoors to the second floor, outside the Ballroom area.

Leading the Crew is Tony Hoard.  Tony has been training dogs with basic commands since he was young and it was a dog team performance at the Indiana State Fair that inspired him to work with his Australian shepherd, Rory, and flying discs. Fast forward to today, and Tony has traveled across the country entertaining crowds with his “K9 Frisbee Crew Trick Dog Show.”

 

The “K9 Crew” includes six dogs that perform acrobatic routines.

  • Rory, a 9-year-old Australian shepherd, is a two-time Skyhoundz World Champion, 2006 IDDHA Freestyle World Champion and 2007 USDDN National Champion, who always seems to land on his feet.
  • Zaniee “J,” is a 6-year-old Australian shepherd, who loves crazy flips and walks on her back legs.
  • At 4 years old, Q-TEE Pup, an extremely energetic Australian shepherd, has  taken home a top-three finish in an international competition, and amazes fans with his ability to walk backward up a wall.
  • Seven of Nine is the smallest team member. At 16 inches tall, she still took home the 2006 Micro-Dog World Championship.
  • Elektra Blu, a 3-year-old Australian shepherd has performed with the Indianapolis Symphony. Mowgli, a 2- year-old Australian shepherd, is a very high energy bundle of high jumping’ dog.
  • The newest addition is Sprocket Rocket, who came out of rescue. He is a mix of border collie/ Australian cattle.
