Pet Acting / Modelling Ability
This is one clever boy, he knows an impressive amount of cues – a few hundred in fact and considered one of our many talented tick dogs! These verbal commands & tricks can be performed in long complex sequences.
He competes in heelwork to music & freestyle & has won the British freestyle competition at Crufts twice as well as the International freestyle. Skiffle is happy to work with anyone, including young children & will work on either verbal cues or hand/body cues. He can easily stay still in multiple positions. His handler is a professional dog trainer who has trained Skiffle to a KC gold Level standard. Most commands can be done at distance & he will work for anyone including strangers. He can be taught new tricks in a short space of time on request.
He tolerates other dogs & will happily work in a room full of other dogs but he doesn’t particularly want to play & he adores his human companions.
