Ila is best known for her starring role in a promotional shoot for the Eurotunnel service ‘Le Shuttle‘. She was required on set for four days and did a stunning job, leading to a very pleased client. She was unfazed by the lights and big crowds and was perfectly well behaved.

She’s truly top of her class and has even progressed to grade four in agility after one season of training. Ila takes weekly obedience classes and has passed her puppy, bronze, silver, and gold Kennel Club Good Citizen tests and she even qualified to the semi-finals of the Good Citizens pre-beginners stakes at Discover Dogs.

For a retriever on the smaller size, she’s the perfect pick.
