Pepsi and Gail passed all 8 DHK Assessments between 2014 and 2016.


Gail, Pepsi's proud owner says, 'Pepsi is a very special addition to our family being the last in her line of my homebred TrentisHoe Doodles. She is niece to Teazel and a first cross (F1) labradoodle. She's a quiet, intelligent dog with a superb temperament. DHK decided to give Pepsi the role of a Support School Dog so that she can specialise in one-one sessions in a school. Pepsi is a little shy on first meeting but loves human contact and particularly a cuddle from a little person on her settle blanket. Being such a gentle soul she has proved a hit with children who are themselves shy or quiet'.
