0:01:030:01:05

Today, we're near Salisbury to meet Ethan, Elsa and their pet dog.

0:01:110:01:15

Come on, let's go find them.

0:01:150:01:18

-Hello.

-Hello, you must be Ethan and Elsa?

0:01:200:01:25

-Hello, Fern.

-Hi.

0:01:250:01:27

-Nice to meet you, and you must be Mum, hi!

-Hello.

0:01:270:01:31

-And who is this huge carpet?

-Whiskey.

0:01:310:01:35

-Whiskey? Is he your dog?

-Yeah.

0:01:350:01:38

This is one smart doggy.

0:01:380:01:40

Whiskey is an assistance dog, he's very special,

0:01:400:01:44

and he's been trained to help Ethan.

0:01:440:01:47

Whiskey has a special trick with socks, doesn't he?

0:01:470:01:50

-Yeah.

-What is it?

0:01:500:01:53

-Takes your socks off?

-Yeah.

0:01:530:01:55

-Whiskey takes socks off?

-Yeah.

0:01:550:01:57

-Can you show us, Ethan?

-Yeah.

-Go on, then.

0:01:570:02:00

Whiskey, up!

0:02:000:02:02

Oh, good boy. Pull, whiskey. Good boy!

0:02:020:02:08

-Ah! Tickles!

-He just looks like he's nibbling your toes.

0:02:080:02:12

Wow! Come on!

0:02:120:02:14

Oh! Yay! Great job.

0:02:140:02:17

Assistance dogs, like Whiskey, can be trained to do lots of

0:02:170:02:21

useful things and respond to commands to help people.

0:02:210:02:24

-He's really, really clever, isn't he?

-Yeah.

-So, how old is Whiskey?

0:02:240:02:28

-Four.

-Four? That's quite young, isn't it?

0:02:280:02:32

And can you tell me what type of dog he is?

0:02:320:02:35

Erm, a Golden Retriever.

0:02:350:02:37

-Oh, they're very clever, aren't they?

-Yeah.

0:02:370:02:41

So, aside from taking off socks, which he's very good at,

0:02:410:02:45

-what other tricks can Whiskey do? Can he give paws?

-Yeah.

0:02:450:02:48

-Will you show me?

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:02:480:02:51

-Oh, here he comes. Big stretch.

-Whiskey, up!

0:02:510:02:55

Lie down, lie down, lie down, lie down.

0:02:550:02:59

Oh, good job, Whiskey!

0:02:590:03:01

Whiskey, paw. Paw. Whiskey, paw.

0:03:010:03:05

Whiskey! Yeah, well done.

0:03:050:03:07

Paw, Whiskey. Whiskey, paw.

0:03:070:03:12

Ethan, what is your favourite thing to do with Whiskey?

0:03:120:03:15

-Cuddle!

-He's very good for cuddles.

0:03:150:03:18

Like a big teddy bear!

0:03:180:03:20

-Is he nice and soft?

-Yeah.

0:03:200:03:23

It's great because Ethan always has a friend wherever he goes.

0:03:230:03:28

So, if Ethan ever needs some time out, or just a cuddle,

0:03:280:03:31

Whiskey is there.

0:03:310:03:33

Aw.

0:03:330:03:35

-Out the way!

-Go on, Elsa, give him a cuddle.

0:03:350:03:38

He's such a good dog. ETHAN EXCLAIMS

0:03:380:03:42

He is perfect for cuddles.

0:03:420:03:44

Rory, can you tell us some more facts about assistance dogs, like Whiskey?

0:03:440:03:50

Of course, Ferne!

0:03:500:03:52

Assistance dogs are trained to do special things

0:03:540:03:57

like opening and closing doors,

0:03:570:03:59

collecting the phone if it rings,

0:03:590:04:02

and helping their owner to use the stairs.

0:04:020:04:06

The most popular breed of assistance dogs are Labrador Retrievers,

0:04:080:04:13

Golden Retrievers and German Shepherds.

0:04:130:04:17

There are lots of different types of assistance dogs.

0:04:170:04:20

Some help guide people who have difficulty seeing or hearing,

0:04:200:04:24

and others help their owners if they're not feeling very well.

0:04:240:04:29

It can take a long time to fully train an assistance dog.

0:04:320:04:36

And most are trained from when they're very young puppies. Aw!

0:04:360:04:40

Whiskey does a lot of useful things to help look after Ethan,

0:04:500:04:55

but he's also a pet, so he needs looking after, too.

0:04:550:04:58

-What do we have to do to look after Whiskey?

-Take him for walks!

0:04:580:05:02

Yeah, we do!

0:05:020:05:04

-Does he like his walks, Ethan?

-Yeah.

0:05:040:05:06

Well, I hear that Whiskey needs to wear something special before he goes

0:05:060:05:11

-on a walk. What is it?

-His harness, his jacket and his leads. OK.

0:05:110:05:16

Shall we start putting them on?

0:05:160:05:19

Whiskey wears this jacket when he's out helping Ethan

0:05:230:05:27

so that other people know that he's working.

0:05:270:05:29

And it helps him to know he's working, too.

0:05:290:05:33

So, we've got an extra lead here, what's this one for?

0:05:350:05:38

Ethan catching on, so he doesn't run off.

0:05:380:05:41

OK, shall we go for a walk?

0:05:410:05:43

-Yeah.

-Yeah!

-OK.

0:05:430:05:45

Whiskey is a lot calmer and less playful when he's got his jacket on.

0:05:510:05:57

Ethan is attached to Whiskey to help make sure that he's safe

0:05:570:06:00

when he comes close to roads.

0:06:000:06:03

-Sit.

-Sit.

0:06:030:06:05

-Good.

-Good boy.

-Right, are you checking the road?

0:06:050:06:09

-Go!

-Come on, Whiskey.

0:06:090:06:12

Come on, Whiskey.

0:06:120:06:14

But because they're such good friends,

0:06:140:06:16

Ethan likes to also take care of Whiskey,

0:06:160:06:19

so he makes sure that Whiskey's safe when he's close to roads, too.

0:06:190:06:24

Now that it's playtime we can take Whiskey's jacket off

0:06:240:06:28

and let him have a run around.

0:06:280:06:30

-Will Whiskey run after this?

-Yeah!

-Whiskey!

0:06:300:06:34

-Whiskey, go!

-Yay!

-Wow! Come on!

0:06:340:06:38

Whiskey!

0:06:390:06:41

THEY LAUGH

0:06:410:06:45

Come on!

0:06:490:06:51

-Whoa!

-Whiskey!

0:06:530:06:54

Good boy!

0:06:570:06:58

Catch!

0:07:010:07:02

Yeah!

0:07:070:07:10

Whiskey must be thirsty after all that running around.

0:07:100:07:13

Going to stand there?

0:07:160:07:19

Dogs always need a drink after a nice walk.

0:07:190:07:23

-You OK?

-Yeah.

0:07:240:07:27

Whoa, good job.

0:07:300:07:31

That's perfect. What goes in here?

0:07:360:07:38

-Food! I'll do the food.

-Food.

-Is that his food?

0:07:380:07:41

-A cup.

-I'll do the cups.

-OK.

0:07:410:07:44

Yummy food.

0:07:460:07:48

-Is that enough, Ethan?

-Yeah.

-Yeah, done?

-Yeah.

-Let's go feed him.

0:07:530:07:58

-Whoa!

-Sit, sit, sit.

-Whiskey's hungry.

0:08:010:08:04

-He's hungry.

-Go on, good boy.

0:08:060:08:10

What noise does he make?

0:08:100:08:12

THEY MAKE EATING SOUNDS

0:08:120:08:15

-Water.

-Yeah, he needs to drink his water, too.

0:08:170:08:21

-Whiskey's hungry.

-He is.

-Loves it.

-He loves his food, doesn't he?

-Yeah.

0:08:210:08:26

It's almost all gone!

0:08:260:08:28

-No!

-FERNE GASPS

0:08:280:08:30

-Is it finished?

-Yeah.

-Wow!

-The water.

0:08:300:08:35

FERNE MAKES DRINKING NOISES Good boy.

0:08:350:08:39

Whiskey is such a clever dog, isn't he?

0:08:480:08:51

-He can even empty the washing machine.

-Can he?

0:08:510:08:56

-Yeah.

-He's so clever. Where is he? Whiskey! We've got a job for you!

0:08:560:09:01

Come on! All right, Ethan, what do we do?

0:09:010:09:04

Here. This. This. This. This.

0:09:040:09:09

Wow.

0:09:090:09:10

Whiskey, fetch.

0:09:120:09:15

-Fetch!

-There's more.

0:09:150:09:16

-Whiskey, fetch.

-You've got work to do, mister.

0:09:160:09:20

Can he come live in my house?

0:09:200:09:23

-No!

-No!

-No? He can't do my washing?

-Close.

0:09:230:09:28

Good boy!

0:09:280:09:30

Whiskey is really good at helping other people, isn't he?

0:09:320:09:36

But what if he could do something for himself?

0:09:360:09:39

What do you think he would do?

0:09:390:09:41

Erm...

0:09:410:09:42

If our pet could do anything, he would have an allotment

0:09:450:09:51

and he would grow lots of vegetables.

0:09:510:09:55

He would grow dog biscuit plants,

0:09:550:09:59

and ball trees,

0:09:590:10:01

and baked bean plants for Ethan.

0:10:010:10:04

And he would win a big golden bone at the country show.

0:10:040:10:10

Ethan is starting a new school this year, which is really exciting,

0:10:150:10:19

but he is also a little bit worried.

0:10:190:10:21

So, we've come to have a look around, with Whiskey, of course,

0:10:210:10:25

to check it out and settle him in.

0:10:250:10:28

-Shall we go have a look inside?

-Yeah!

0:10:280:10:30

Let's go.

0:10:300:10:32

Hi!

0:10:330:10:34

-Hi, Ferne.

-Hi!

0:10:370:10:39

Yeah, this is a soft play area,

0:10:410:10:42

so, we're here with Isobel and Marcus,

0:10:420:10:45

they're going to be in Ethan's class

0:10:450:10:47

and Sue is going to be Ethan's teacher.

0:10:470:10:50

-I think Whiskey likes this room.

-Hello, Whiskey!

-Yeah.

0:10:500:10:54

The soft playroom is a fantastic space

0:10:540:10:57

for Ethan and his new classmates to play and explore.

0:10:570:11:01

But there's no time for sleeping, Whiskey!

0:11:050:11:08

This way. Come on, Whiskey.

0:11:080:11:12

'It's time to go and see the sensory room.

0:11:120:11:15

'It's a magical space where Ethan can rest and play,

0:11:150:11:21

'with sounds, colour, friends and Whiskey, too.'

0:11:210:11:26

Oliver, look, here's Whiskey.

0:11:260:11:28

-Isn't he lovely?

-Yeah.

0:11:280:11:30

The sensory room is amazing.

0:11:340:11:36

Let's have a look around outside.

0:11:390:11:41

Oh, this place looks cool, look.

0:11:410:11:44

I think Whiskey likes this, he's sniffing everything.

0:11:440:11:48

-Whoa!

-Ah!

0:11:520:11:55

'And look at this amazing school playground.'

0:11:550:11:58

Whee!

0:11:580:11:59

-Higher?

-Yay!

-Yeah!

-Timber!

0:12:010:12:05

-Ethan, do you think Whiskey likes the school?

-Yeah.

0:12:130:12:17

Yeah, he loves it, doesn't he?

0:12:170:12:18

-Do you like the school?

-Yeah.

0:12:180:12:21

I've had such a great time meeting you both

0:12:210:12:24

and meeting your wonderful smart dog.

0:12:240:12:26

Thank you, Ferne.

0:12:260:12:28

-Thank you. And thank you, Elsa.

-Thank you, Fern.

0:12:280:12:32

Thank you, Whiskey, for being so good.

0:12:320:12:35

-CHILDREN:

-My pet and me!

0:12:420:12:44

-Hi, Rory.

-Hi, Ferne.

-Hi, Holly. Hi, Berry.

0:12:460:12:49

-I'm just getting their bed ready, they look cosy.

-They definitely do.

0:12:490:12:54

-How was your day?

-It was brilliant.

0:12:540:12:56

I had so much fun with my new friends.

0:12:560:12:58

Pets are great, but you shouldn't touch an animal

0:12:580:13:01

unless the owner says it's OK first.

0:13:010:13:03

Two pets you can play with are ours,

0:13:030:13:06

go to the CBeebies website and play the My Pet And Me Game.

0:13:060:13:09

What a fantastic time we've had, we love meeting you and your pets.

0:13:090:13:14

# We see how much you care for them

0:13:210:13:24

# Thank you so much for sharing them

0:13:240:13:28

# Time for us to Just remind you

0:13:280:13:33

-# After you've played with your pet

0:13:330:13:38
