Describe your top five doggy personality traits:
Loyal, easy to train, intelligent, affectionate, twerking expert.
What are your top doggy achievements to date (e.g. training classes, awards, tricks etc.)?
In my short time I have learned quickly not to go to the loo indoors, I am comfortable walking in busy city centres and I am good at retrieving.
What would you do if you were PM for the day? Any dog related issues you would tackle for your four-legged friends?
I would instigate an official UK dog week and use it to celebrate dogs and their owners.
Why is it essential that all children in the UK are educated about safe interaction with dogs?
Many dogs are service animals- it’s essential that children know not to distract a working dog.
What advice would you give to children about safe interaction with dogs?
It’s great to be enthusiastic about dogs- just always make sure you ask before you pet, or start to play!
Why should you be crowned Westminster Dog of the Year 2016?
Even though I am relatively young, I believe I would be an excellent ambassador for my species. I would also become a role model for the younger dog generation.
