Pippin – Border Terrier
Breed: Border Terrier
More information about this dog
Pippin the Border Terrier is a dog model for hire, who is an amazing bundle of pet talent. She can be booked as a solo dog model or with her equally well-trained sister.
Pet Acting / Modelling Ability
Pippin is full on, large as life, bold and inquisitive. This little dog is driven and definitely has a good sense of humour.
She has been clicker trained and has a large (and still growing) repertoire of tricks. Pippin has also completed the Kennel Club Good Citizen Gold Award.
Most of her commands can be followed from a distance of 5-10 feet. She can work with adults but is best not working with black dogs, other border terriers and other animals. She is trained to a mixture of voice commands and gestures and can work at a distance.
Pippin is a fun-loving, large as life character with a sense of adventure. She always wants to be into things and loves new challenges and learning new things. She is very active and competes in agility.
