Britain's dogs are becoming more talented thanks to the "Pudsey effect", according to a survey by the Kennel Club. Almost one-third of dog owners (32%) said the success of the Britain's GotTalent canine winner had encouraged them to develop their own pet's abilities.
Pudsey and owner Ashleigh will be appearing at the Mad Hatter's Tea Party in Portsmouth later to entertain sick children.
