Q. What do you get when you cross a spaniel and a poodle? A. A 'Spoodle' called Noodle.

Dog Noodle is a member of staff at Wallscourt Farm Academy and Beaufort Grange Care Home in Bristol.

School Reporters Jacob and Aidan from Bath Community Academy talk to the head teacher and students at the primary school and staff and residents at the care home and learn about the benefits of canine care.
