An attempt was made by a local tennis club to train dogs for this role. The dogs underwent speed and agility tests at Wilton Tennis Club in London.

They were also trained to run up and down across the court and high jump over the nets.

Martin Schiller, the coordinator of the Wilton Tennis Club, revealed the dogs were excellent at fetching the ball quickly but were not so keen on returning them.
