Meet Herald the Barkeologist


Have you ever met a Barkeologist? If not, then let us to introduce you to Herald. Herald is the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium’s wonder dog, aka Barkeologist, who stars as “Indiana Bones” in the Wild Wonders Outdoor Theater Show. Herald and his animal friends put on an action-packed show every day that delights young and old alike. You can get a sneak peek of his performance skills and watch him wow spectators with some of his tricks in the video below. Herald has a very full day, every day, and so a healthy diet is very important.

That is where we come in. Pet Pros is delighted to have the privilege of helping Herald stay in tip top form by providing him with Nature’s Variety Instinct dry food that is full of natural goodness. Like many pets, Herald has allergies so finding the right food was not easy. His handlers also supplement his food with fish oil to keep his coat nice and smooth.


He’s a pretty dashing little guy, isn’t he?

Herald was adopted from the Humane Society for Tacoma & Pierce County and has a very large extended family at the zoo. He gets 5 walks a day and if he is not performing or training, he might just get a nap on his futon (yes, he has a futon as well as a few dog beds!).

If you’d like to see Herald in action, check out the Wild Wonders show details. To see if Herald’s food of choice, Nature’s Variety, is a good fit for your own little star, come see us!
