Sammie – Border Terrier
Breed: Border Terrier
More information about this dog
Meet Sammie, the Border Terrier dog model with a big personality. She can be booked with her Border Terrier sister Pippin. Sammie weighs 7.6kg.
Pet Acting / Modelling Ability
This lovely little girl has her Kennel Club Good Citizen Award to a gold standard and has been clicker trained to perform a large (and still growing) repertoire of tricks.
Most of Sammie’s commands can be followed from a distance of 5-10 feet and is trained to a mixture of voice commands and gestures. She is fine with people, including children and okay with other dogs, horses and cows. Unfortunately, she can’t work around sheep, cats or rodents.
Sammie is a sensitive, gentle soul who loves tickles and affection. She loves people but can be shy around new objects or things that move in unfamiliar ways.
Sammie is a thoughtful character who loves cuddles. She is an active dog that competes in agility and loves training and learning new things but is just as happy snuggling on your knee or having a quiet snooze. She is quick to learn and has a wide repertoire of basic skills that can be readily adapted to a new environment.
