Since 2006 Bonzer Productions has been making audiences laugh with our live shows featuring the comedy and mime of DIANE WASNAK, the music of singer, BARB POLK and the canine antics of Bonzer Productions’ AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERDS.
Bonzer Productions is the namesake of our first performing dog, BONZER, a one-of-a-kind canine who brought smiles to cruise ship audiences, praise from commercial producers and accolades from the Broadway stage. Today, Bonzer Productions continues our tradition of top-notch canine performance in a variety of areas!

Here’s one of our favorite videos we created for the Palo Alto Humane Society in California!
In 2015, Bonzer Productions began an exciting partnership with The Palo Alto Humane Society. Together our team won the coveted Telly Award for the video “It’s a Dog’s Day”. It’s filled with puppets, dog tricks, music and an important message for young children.

CAN YOU REALLY SLEEP WITH A BED FULL OF DOGS?
Barb Polk sings about it and Diane & the dogs answer the question in this comical music video. Our song brought home a big WIN in the Children’s Music Category at the International Songwriting Competition!
Bindi’s sweet disposition and “doggy smile” always win the hearts of kids and grandparents alike. An exceptional learner, she is especially adept at mastering new behaviors for commercial projects.
Hearing-impaired at birth, Crikey has shown us just how you overcome a challenge. He responds remarkably and is on his way to becoming a matinee idol with his striking “Bonzer style” half mask, a photographer favorite.

Our beloved Bizzo, Bonzer's only female offspring crossed over the Rainbow Bridge in August 2021. She was a superb performer, starring in PAHS "It's a Dog's Day" video, a World Equestrian Games TV spot and was our featured performer in live shows for many years. Like Bonzer & Cooey, a day doesn't go by that we don't miss her.
