More information about this dog

Trip Hazard is a male crossbreed; Pomeranian & Maltese mix aged 4 years old. He is a tiny dog with a huge personality, weighing 2.5 kg & standing approximately 8 inches high at the withers.  At just 2 years of age, Trip reached the final of Britain’s Got Talent 2016 with his owner Lucy Heath.  As a born performer he is not at all phased by lights or noisy/busy environments.

Pet Acting / Modelling Ability

He is calm, quiet and relaxed to be around & onset, but will switch on the action from the moment he has to “work”.  Trip not only tolerates but absolutely loves to wear clothes.

With an extensive list of tricks, from simple to complex his skill set is always growing.  He can work at a distance and can learn new behaviours in an incredibly short time frame. He is trained using clicker training and loves to train for either toys or food.

He adores all people, dogs of all sizes and other animals and is happy to work with them and around them.  Trip lives with 2 cats, who he adores & has spent a lot of time around sheep, llamas, chickens and has even sat on a miniature horse.

As Trip’s owner is a professional dog trainer, he is highly trained in obedience, heelwork to music, tricks and agility.  Before the age of 2, Trip won Superdogs Live at both the London Pet Show and National Pet Show 2015 & performed with 5 other dogs as part of a group act to Michael Jackson’s Thriller at National Pet Show and Dog Fest events.


For this trick dog there really are too many skills to list, however, some highlights are:

Lift any 4 legs on cue
Lean (lift two legs on the same side),
Play dead
Walk backwards long distances
Send away to or around anything (including people and other animals)
Handstand walking sideways supported
Two front paws on (anything)
