NEW! Bully Prevention Research Results

Welcome to the Adventures with Travis & Presley Website

Travis Brorsen and his talented companion Presley have an amazing story to tell.  After winning the 2008 CBS hit reality show “Greatest American Dog”, this young actor and studio trained brindle boxer decided to hit the road.  As they travel the country and entertain children (and adults) they demonstrate their incredible relationship, showing how respect, friendship and using good manners are empowering benefits to being successful.


What Travis didn’t realize was how strongly Presley would inspire children and how much the children would inspire them.  Now, with their ‘Good Manners Series’ curriculum, Travis and Presley want to reach children across the country, providing a tool that reinforces life skills and character development, and demonstrates the importance of having good manners.
“Research shows that approximately 150 children that participated in the 30 day study showed an increase in life skills and bully prevention awareness. Based on the results of this study, the Travis and Presley
curriculum is an effective way to teach children character education.”
