Jules O’Dwyer & Matisse
Jules is a 49-year-old dog trainer. Originally from Blackpool, she now lives in Belgium with her partner. She trains guide dogs and previously worked for the RSPCA. Matisse is a 7-year-old Border Collie and is one of Jules’ eight dogs. Jules and Matisse performed a routine called ‘Dog Catcher’ that told a story of Matisse trying to escape from being caught, receiving a standing ovation from the judges as David described it as “joyous and wholesome”.
Marc and his dog Wendy left the judges in a state of shock as the canine appeared to ‘speak’. Simon in particular could barely contain his excitement, claiming over and over again that they’d found a speaking dog.
Mitch And Cally The Wonderdog
Mitch and Cally ‘The Wonderdog’ hoped to break a Guinness World Record on the BGT stage: popping the most balloons in a minute. Cally didn’t quite manage it, but the judges were entertained enough to give them another chance.
