Brandy joined us in February 2011 from Allsorts Dog Rescue in West Sussex just before her 6th birthday. She started to learn tricks about one month after we got her. All she knew was sit! She has achieved the highest of the trick dog titles (Trick Dog Champion) and passed it with an A+.
In 2012 Brandy has won about 30 times ‘Best Trick’ at Fun Dog Shows and was one of the finalists for the Crufts Factor where we performed 3 minutes of our tricks at Discover Dogs in London. Currently Brandy knows about 120 tricks but we are always working on new and original tricks.
Although Brandy is a gundog and has her nose most of the time on the ground she has learned to stay focused and to concentrate and she loves to show off her tricks.
For Brandy learning means playing!
