Lights, camera, poodles!

Two poodles have become stars of the small screen after appearing in a TV campaign.

Toy poodles Freddie and Mojo can sing, play the piano and even perform pirouettes. But it’s their skateboarding skills that have earned them a spot on an advert for pet food brand Webbox Natural. Freddie and Mojo’s owner and trainer, Lynne Lund, says the pair show a natural flair for performing tricks. To teach her dogs to perform on command she uses a ‘clicking’ system, which rewards the dog for good behaviour.

Mojo and Freddie’s talents were given the seal of approval by Simon Cowell and the Britain’s Got Talent judges last year.

In the TV campaign, seven-year-old Mojo is seen pushing her son Freddie, three, on a mini skateboard.
Lynne, from Derbyshire, said: “One day I just thought, wouldn’t it be fun if Mojo could ride a skateboard. I found one in the loft and decided to give it a go.

“I clicked her and before I knew it she was riding up and down the hall. She’s been up and down seeing friends, and even been to the skate park.”
