0:01:000:01:03

Today, we're in Cornwall to meet Pete and his dog, Murdoch.

0:01:060:01:10

I wonder what breed of dog he is. Let's go find out.

0:01:100:01:13

Hello! You must be Pete.

0:01:200:01:22

-Hello, Rory.

-And you must be Mum. Hi.

0:01:220:01:24

Hi, Rory.

0:01:240:01:26

And this big guy can only be Murdoch.

0:01:260:01:29

Hello! You are gorgeous!

0:01:290:01:32

-What sort of dog is he?

-Poodle dog.

-Yes, that's right.

0:01:320:01:35

Not just any poodle, but a standard poodle.

0:01:350:01:38

-You can tell because he's so big, isn't he?

-Yeah.

-He's gorgeous.

0:01:380:01:42

There are three kinds of poodle.

0:01:420:01:44

Standards, like Murdoch. They're the biggest.

0:01:440:01:47

Then there's miniature. Smallest of all is the toy poodle.

0:01:470:01:51

-How old is Murdoch?

-11.

0:01:510:01:53

-Wow. And how old are you?

-Four.

0:01:530:01:55

-So you're younger than your dog?

-Yes.

0:01:550:01:58

Wow! You are quite an old dog, Murdoch,

0:01:580:02:01

but you're still very handsome.

0:02:010:02:03

Older dogs need extra special care.

0:02:030:02:06

They need regular vet visits, healthy food

0:02:060:02:08

and plenty of exercise and playtime.

0:02:080:02:11

What do you love most about Murdoch?

0:02:110:02:13

Giving him cuddles and tickles.

0:02:130:02:15

Why don't you give him some now? Give him a big cuddle and a tickle.

0:02:150:02:20

How about a big cuddle? Give him a nice squeeze.

0:02:210:02:24

Aw.

0:02:240:02:26

He's so soft, isn't he? He's very nice.

0:02:260:02:30

Poodles are sociable dogs that like to spend time

0:02:300:02:33

with both children and adults.

0:02:330:02:35

And they love a cuddle, as you can see with Murdoch. Aw.

0:02:350:02:39

Now, Pete, did you know that poodles generally like to go swimming?

0:02:390:02:43

Is Murdoch a fan of swimming?

0:02:430:02:45

-Well, I don't think he is.

-That's funny, isn't it?

0:02:450:02:48

It's very unusual for a poodle cos they were bred for that reason.

0:02:480:02:53

They've got thick coats to keep them warm,

0:02:530:02:55

and webbed toes as well.

0:02:550:02:57

You know snorkelling fins so you can go through the water?

0:02:570:03:01

It's just like that.

0:03:010:03:02

-Can you swim like a poodle?

-Er...

0:03:020:03:06

RORY PANTS Good poodle swimming. High five.

0:03:060:03:09

I like that.

0:03:090:03:11

Ferne, can you give us some facts about poodles

0:03:110:03:13

just like our friend, Murdoch, here?

0:03:130:03:16

Of course, Rory.

0:03:160:03:18

One, poodles come in lots of different colours,

0:03:180:03:24

including black, white, grey, brown and apricot.

0:03:240:03:29

Two, poodles tend to be a very intelligent breed of dog

0:03:320:03:36

and easy to train.

0:03:360:03:37

Three, poodles are well known for being pampered pooches

0:03:400:03:43

and, due to their thick coats,

0:03:430:03:45

it's important for them to be groomed regularly.

0:03:450:03:49

Lots of different dogs make excellent pets,

0:03:580:04:00

and Murdoch, just like any dog, needs lots of care and love.

0:04:000:04:05

So, Pete, how do you look after Murdoch?

0:04:050:04:08

I give him food and water,

0:04:080:04:11

a comfy bed, lots of walks.

0:04:110:04:15

Yes. Exercise. You take him for walks? That's great.

0:04:150:04:19

-Well, you obviously look after him very well.

-He even gets a haircut.

0:04:190:04:23

Haircuts? I'd like to hear about that later.

0:04:230:04:26

I'm here to help you today, so what do we do first?

0:04:260:04:29

-Come on, I'll show you.

-Great, let's go.

0:04:290:04:32

Come on, Murdoch.

0:04:320:04:33

So we're in the kitchen.

0:04:350:04:37

This is a great place to start. What have we got here?

0:04:370:04:40

-Dog food.

-Mmm, it looks very delicious,

0:04:400:04:43

-if you're dog, I think.

-Yeah.

0:04:430:04:45

-We're not feeding him now, are we?

-No.

-When do you feed him?

0:04:450:04:49

-After his walk.

-Absolutely.

0:04:490:04:51

Always feed your dog 30 minutes to one hour after exercise

0:04:510:04:55

because running around with a full tummy can make it sore.

0:04:550:04:59

We don't want that.

0:04:590:05:00

-How many times a day do you feed him?

-Two.

0:05:000:05:02

Breakfast and dinner time. OK, we've got the food there.

0:05:020:05:06

-What else have we got here?

-A water bowl.

0:05:060:05:09

And it's very important to keep this full

0:05:090:05:11

because all pets need water.

0:05:110:05:13

So shall we fill this up? Right. You carry that.

0:05:130:05:18

There's the comfy bed you talked about, Pete.

0:05:180:05:21

-Is that where Murdoch sleeps?

-Yes.

-Right, let's fill this water up.

0:05:210:05:25

There we go.

0:05:290:05:31

Rightio, there we are.

0:05:350:05:37

Now, tell me about these haircuts, Pete.

0:05:370:05:40

You don't take Murdoch to your hairdressers, do you? No.

0:05:400:05:43

He doesn't go to a hairdressers.

0:05:430:05:46

-Where does he go?

-To a dog groomer.

0:05:460:05:49

Oh, of course. Yes.

0:05:490:05:50

Poodles have different hair to other dogs.

0:05:500:05:53

It doesn't fall out easily, which means you have to brush them

0:05:530:05:57

and go to the dog groomers,

0:05:570:05:58

which is where we're off today, isn't it? Let's go.

0:05:580:06:02

-Hi, Helen.

-Hi, Rory. Hi, Pete. Hi, Murdoch.

0:06:070:06:10

-Come on.

-How are we doing?

-Good.

-Shall we go in?

-Let's go.

-OK.

0:06:100:06:14

OK.

0:06:150:06:17

So Murdoch is here for his summer haircut

0:06:170:06:19

because he's fuzzy and we don't want him to get too warm.

0:06:190:06:23

What do we have to do first?

0:06:230:06:25

Brush Murdoch's coat, get all the dead hair out.

0:06:250:06:28

-Shall we do that now, then?

-OK, yep. I think we should do that now.

0:06:280:06:32

Look at that.

0:06:330:06:35

OK. We just start at the top and work our way through.

0:06:350:06:38

Look how thick and lovely his hair is, Pete. Isn't it? Touch it.

0:06:380:06:43

-What does it feel like?

-Soft.

-It does, doesn't it?

0:06:430:06:48

-Look, he's holding his chin up.

-He likes that, doesn't he?

0:06:480:06:52

-Very fluffy at the moment.

-Look at him!

0:06:520:06:54

There he is, just about ready.

0:06:560:06:58

I think that's looking absolutely spectacular.

0:06:580:07:01

Brushing removes old hair

0:07:010:07:04

and spreads natural oils over the skin.

0:07:040:07:06

It keeps both the skin and coat healthy.

0:07:060:07:09

So what is next, Helen?

0:07:090:07:11

We've just got to choose a style for his clip.

0:07:110:07:13

Just like the hairdressers.

0:07:130:07:15

We get to choose how Murdoch will look.

0:07:150:07:18

Right, what will we go for?

0:07:180:07:20

We've got the Continental. That looks like a big beard.

0:07:200:07:23

-What do you think it looks like?

-A Santa Claus.

0:07:230:07:26

RORY LAUGHS It does look like Santa!

0:07:260:07:30

Or the Town and Country. What do you think?

0:07:300:07:32

-Stripy dog.

-It is, like a zebra.

0:07:320:07:36

Look at this one. It's called the Lion.

0:07:360:07:38

Would you like a lion around your house?

0:07:380:07:41

I would be super scared.

0:07:410:07:43

We don't want you to be scared of your dog,

0:07:430:07:46

so how about this last one here,

0:07:460:07:48

the Kennel, which is just shorter all over?

0:07:480:07:51

-What do you think?

-Good.

-Can we please have the Kennel clip?

0:07:510:07:55

OK, the Kennel clip is a great choice. We'll go for that one.

0:07:550:07:58

He's getting his beard all cut off.

0:08:060:08:09

Good boy, Murdoch.

0:08:090:08:12

There's a lot of hair coming off.

0:08:120:08:14

We're going to do his feet next.

0:08:140:08:16

Murdoch finds this quite tickly.

0:08:160:08:19

Sometimes he's a little bit fidgety on his feet.

0:08:190:08:23

Quite a lot of dogs have very tickly feet.

0:08:240:08:27

-Just like people.

-Yeah.

0:08:270:08:28

-Have you got very tickly feet?

-No.

-Ooh!

0:08:280:08:32

OK, the tail.

0:08:320:08:34

-OK, that's his tail done.

-Brilliant.

0:08:370:08:39

-I think Murdoch will be smiling when he's finished, don't you?

-Yes.

0:08:420:08:47

He's smiling now.

0:08:470:08:49

-How's it looking?

-Good.

0:08:490:08:52

Oh, the chest hair is coming off.

0:08:520:08:55

Look at how well he's sitting. Isn't that amazing?

0:08:550:08:58

OK, Rory, I think that's him done.

0:09:070:09:09

Oh, Murdoch!

0:09:140:09:15

You look incredible. You're such a pampered pooch.

0:09:150:09:19

Helen, thank you very much.

0:09:190:09:21

-Thank you, Helen.

-You're welcome, Pete.

0:09:210:09:24

-Right, let's head off then and show him off. See you!

-See you! Bye-bye.

0:09:240:09:28

-CHILDREN:

-My Pet And Me!

0:09:300:09:33

This view is incredible. I can see the sea from here.

0:09:330:09:37

-It's not far from the beach.

-It's really not.

0:09:370:09:41

And what do you like to do at the beach?

0:09:410:09:44

I like building sandcastles and eating ice cream.

0:09:440:09:49

Now that sounds like a lot of fun.

0:09:490:09:52

If Murdoch here could do anything, what do you think he'd do?

0:09:520:09:56

If my pet could do anything,

0:09:570:10:00

he would be a train driver of a blue train

0:10:000:10:04

that travels all over the countryside and in town too.

0:10:040:10:12

He would stop at a dinosaur museum.

0:10:120:10:16

Then Murdoch would buy some bone books.

0:10:160:10:20

Amazing.

0:10:200:10:22

We're at the beach!

0:10:360:10:38

I can see why you and Murdoch love this place.

0:10:380:10:41

Let's go and explore. Come on.

0:10:410:10:43

All dogs need exercise and should be walked every day, preferably twice.

0:10:530:10:57

-How many times a day do you walk Murdoch?

-Twice.

0:10:570:11:00

-Once in the morning, once at night?

-Yeah.

-Excellent. That's good.

0:11:000:11:04

This is nice, but I think it's time we let him off the lead

0:11:040:11:08

and let him explore, don't you?

0:11:080:11:10

Here we go. Right, on you go. Off he goes.

0:11:100:11:14

That's it, Murdoch. Look at him having a good explore.

0:11:160:11:19

Before you take your dog to the beach,

0:11:210:11:23

make sure it's dog friendly and don't forget poo bags.

0:11:230:11:27

Picking up your dog's poo means everyone can enjoy a clean beach.

0:11:270:11:31

What's Murdoch up to?

0:11:310:11:33

-He's running around.

-He is!

0:11:330:11:37

-He's having fun.

-Yes, he is.

0:11:370:11:40

-Shall we go and run with him?

-Yeah.

-Come on.

0:11:400:11:45

Woohoo!

0:11:450:11:46

Pete, look at the dogs playing down there.

0:11:540:11:56

Meeting other dogs while out walking

0:11:580:12:01

is a great way to help your dog learn to play,

0:12:010:12:03

but always have your lead in case you need it.

0:12:030:12:06

Let's go and say hello. Come on.

0:12:060:12:09

Murdoch has found some friends

0:12:120:12:14

and they're sniffing each other to say hello.

0:12:140:12:17

I've had a wonderful time coming to meet you and Murdoch.

0:12:170:12:21

You guys have so much fun together. Thank you.

0:12:210:12:24

-Thank you for coming, Rory.

-Aw!

0:12:240:12:26

-CHILDREN:

-My Pet And Me!

0:12:330:12:36

-Hi, Ferne.

-Hi, Rory. You look like you had a great day.

0:12:390:12:42

-What have you been up to?

-I had an awesome time. It was so much fun.

0:12:420:12:46

Oh, fantastic.

0:12:460:12:47

I'm giving Sunny a brush. He was mucky from earlier.

0:12:470:12:51

-He looks spectacular.

-Thanks!

0:12:510:12:53

Pets are brilliant but, remember,

0:12:530:12:55

only touch an animal if the owner says so.

0:12:550:12:57

Two pets you can definitely play with are ours.

0:12:570:13:00

Go on the CBeebies website and play the My Pet And Me game.

0:13:000:13:04

0:13:540:13:57

0:13:570:14:00
