Don’t miss the amazing trick dog Hero the Super Collie on the America’s Got Talent Live Show Tuesday night!
We are so excited that our talented friends, Sara Carson and Superstar Hero the Super Collie, will be on the next episode of America’s Got Talent on Tuesday, August 29th! We will be watching and cheering them on. What a dream come true and so well deserved. See an exclusive behind the scenes video on Hero below. They are in LA working on their routine which should wow the world again!
The Super Collies have spent the summer travelling and performing across America and Canada, and preparing for the live Quarterfinals of America’s Got Talent. See travel tips and stories on our sister site The Backseat Barkers.
We can’t wait to see what they do next but Sara says it will be their best show yet.
Hero The Super Collie and Sara
You have probably seen The Super Collies featured on The Backseat Barkers and Talent Hounds, as well as on The Late Show with David Letterman, Ellen and more. With a name like Hero, it’s no surprise that this talented border collie is bounding into stardom! He is certainly our Hero.
Border Collies are some of the most intelligent and highly trainable dogs in the world. The breed dominates at tricks shows and athletic competitions and Hero is one of the best we know.
Trainer Sara Carson has been working with him since he was just a puppy. She has become one of the most sought after and talented dog trainers in the world and she instantly knew the adorable Hero would be the perfect partner to work with.
It wasn’t long before he showed just how talented he is: Hero became the world’s youngest champion trick dog at just 4 months old, with an impressive repertoire of 60 tricks! Since then he has won lots of awards.
We have been following his career since the beginning as it was amazing to see such an adorable pup be so attentive and focused during his routines. He has really turned their world upside down.
He’s good at jumping rope.
Hero is now 5 years old, 6 on September 3 and we hope he’ll be celebrating advancing on AGT with lots of games and treats. He now knows over 400 tricks and actions. This amazing dog can do just about any trick you can imagine, and then some!
Hero is known for his dancing although he does occasionally step on Sara’s toes LOL.
We asked Hero how he keeps in top shape.
He eats a healthy diet. He is sponsored by Nulo.
He loves running, jumping, catching discs, dock diving, agility, hiking, performing and more. He is a super athlete.
Hero On America’s Got Talent
Now all his hard work is paying off big time! Superstar Hero the Border Collie has made it through the early rounds of the hit TV series America’s Got Talent to the live quarterfinals.
See our article about the nail biting auditions and how Sara’s life changed in a day HERE. Sara and Hero showed off incredible tricks, including a full on sword fight! The performance was so impressive that Simon Cowell, the ultimate judge to win over, gave Sara a hug on stage and asked Howie to put them through!
The next quarterfinals live show will air on Tuesday, August 29th and we’re marking it on our calendars!
We have no doubt he’ll stand out amongst the tough competition as he was born and trained to be a star. This is an incredible opportunity for Hero and Sara and we are so excited! Make sure to tune in on Tuesday and vote for them.

So cool! I haven’t heard of Hero until now, but now that I know about hero, I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for both dog and human! Border Collies are simply amazing and it’s wonderful to see such a great bond between the dog and their human/trainer. I hope they continue forward on America’s Got Talent!
