She is always keeping her eyes peeled for the best dog walking spots and everywhere she goes, so does Warrick!

Qualifications

Warrick Tuthill

He is now fully recovered and back to causing mischief! In 2012 Warrick passed his Kennel Club Good Citizen Gold award.

 

Warrick comes out on most of the first dog walks so that we can see how each of the dogs interact with one another and gives us a good indication of what dog personalities they would best match up with.
