Endeavoured is a beagle with good looks, charisma and a shelf full of silver trophies from an illustrious career in the show ring.
His owner Patricia Sutton describes the show dog lifestyle and the qualities needed to compete at national level. Pat is hugely knowledgeable, with an earthy turn of phrase, so the episode is packed with humour and detail. She runs the venerable Rossut Beagles breeding kennel, which was founded by Pat’s parents.
Known as “Dev” these days, the former show champion is living the dream, finding equal success in his post-showing career as a stud dog.
In a first for Dogs with Jobs, we’re giving a mild content warning on today’s episode: expect a fairly frank discussion about sex and the mating process.
