Ripley came to us age 10 weeks and has one sister. She lives with Merlin, our 7 year old male Norwich Terrier, and has fast settled into the family!! She loves working on tricks, training in general, conditioning exercises, Heelwork to Music and Hoopers and has been picking up new tricks quite quickly as well as putting her own spin on some!!

She is happy, confident, doesn’t bark still but is very healthy. Works for treats or toys, plays with anything given to her but will also leave toys alone to have a photo taken with it. Great recall she is off lead for walks and enjoys sandy beaches, stoney beaches, grass, woods and isn’t put off by any ground surface inc mud or water!

Friendly with every person she has ever met she tends to melt hearts and even the least dog loving person usually ends up picking her up for a cuddle. She hasn’t yet met a dog she isn’t happy with – bigger dogs she wants to play (her best friend is an Old English Sheepdog!) and small dogs she tends to lay down to show she is friendly which is amusing when she is small herself!

Ripley has done several Trick Displays at Classic Festivals and Events shows and All About Dogs Show so far which we do as Piplin and Friends, and Ripley has her own solo while the rest work as a group. She isn’t distracted by an audience, passing people and dogs, loudspeakers, music or even Morris Dancers performing a few feet from the ring! A pleasure to train and spend time with Im thrilled Ripley passed her Champion Tricks Title mid 2019 and is now doing her Silver Good Citizens, plus having done TV and Stage work with our other Norwich I am hopeful to start Ripley in the same type of work which I feel she will enjoy.

Ripley’s CV so far now includes filming in London for The Kennel Club’s Discover Dogs 2019 video, filming in Surrey for an advert as well as a documentary about filming dog adverts (two separate filming sessions), featuring in Edition Dog Magazine’s Norwich Terrier breed feature and having a professional photo shoot along with Merlin and a few other Vulnerable Native Breeds for a Rare Breeds project. For all of these she had fun, listened to direction and wasn’t phased by any equipment, sounds etc – in fact she knows to settle down quickly and get comfy if we aren’t doing anything for a few minutes so does great on set for several hours!!

Ripley has now started Kennel Club Heelwork to Music Competition with her first in August 2019 – Starters Musical Dressage! Over 2 minutes working without treats or toys and she came 5th on her first try!

We also had fun at Crufts in March 2019 where Ripley was placed in all three classes, qualifying her for Crufts 2020 also.

Alba the French Bulldog

Alba is a blue female french bulldog who is 5 months old. She has a very slight athletic build especially for a Frenchie and has a beautiful face. She is extremely sociable with people and animals. She is great with children and is very energetic, playful and inquisitive. Her recall and basic commands are good. She is very quiet as in she doesn't bark, only when extremely excited playing with other dogs. She hasn't done any modelling but she is a brand ambassador for Kitty Coral Pets and Nass Pets on social media. She has a lot of followers and had many offers from other independent pets brands but we have only linked with these 2 brands so far. Alba is great in front of the camera, she isn't shy and enjoys attention.

Ziggy Lewis the Cockapoo

I am a super happy clever pup who loves my humans! At just 11 weeks old I already know how to sit, listen to my human and give my paw! I’m super cuddly and I just love attention and fuss.

Yoghurt the French Bulldog

Yoghurt is a friendly and obedient puppy, she can sit, stay, stand on her back two legs, beg (sitting lifting her front two paws), lay down and give her paw, all on cue.

Bugsy the Poodle

Bugsy is a 10 month old sproodle (Springer spaniel and poodle mix) Bugsy is full of life and love. She gets on well with all animals including her very unsociable sister which is an 18 year old cat named poppy. Bugsy can do many tricks despite her age including, sit, stay, lay down, give paw, spin in a circle, and even give hi five! Bugsy can also go to certain people and go either inside or outside on command. Bugsy is super smart and so lovable she loves all people and being round chaos and lively environments, well, she is in her element but can also remain focused and obedient.
