This pair rose to fame when they won Britain’s Got Talent back in 2012 and it wasn’t long until they were inundated with job offers from the US. The trainer Ashleigh and her pooch are known for putting on glittering performances. Ashleigh, 19, always looking glamorous, while Pudsey now has his very own film (voiced by David Walliams). Ashleigh joked last year that the dog is getting too big for his paws: ‘I’m not 100 per cent sure if I’m going to be in [the film]. He’s trying to go solo… He’s trying to ditch me!’
In an interview with the Daily Mail at around the same time, she admitted that she did worry about her and her dog’s future. She said: ‘There’s going to be a point where Pudsey can’t do what he’s doing and I do worry and think, “Oh, what am I going to do when Pudsey can’t dance any more?”, ‘I know this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience so I’ve just got to enjoy it as much as possible.’
Since they appeared on the show they have performed on America’s Got Talent, Jay Leno, as well as for the Queen at Epsom Races.
Another rhythmic duo is Kelsey and Bailey who found fame on season 8 of America´s got talent. Kelsey and Bailey have been inseparable since Bailey was a puppy, and Kelsey started competing in Freestyle competitions with Bailey when he was three years old, after watching a YouTube video of Kate and Gin on season two of “Britain’s Got Talent.”
They joined an organisation called World Canine Freestyle (WCFO), where they have met incredible trainers and travelled to different shows, including a performance on Nickelodeon.
When discussing dancing dogs and their partners we cannot forget the original musical-canine freestyle act, previously mentioned, Kate and Gin!
Kate and Gin consist of Kate and her dancing Border Collie, Gin. The two achieved fame following their 2008 appearances on the second series of talent show Britain’s Got Talent. Since the show, the duo have appeared publicly and in pantomimes, as well as publishing a book, Kate and Gin, about dog training. In 2013, Nicholas joined the Royal Army Veterinary Corps, training dogs for the British military.
