Dogs In TV, Film & Ads

a rainbow-colored separation bar

Does your dog have star potential? If your dog is confident, doesn't stress easily in new environments, is responsive to the basic commands and is reliable off-leash under heavy distraction, your dog may have what it takes to do print ads, television or movie work.

Note: We strongly encourage dog owners and handlers to watch their pets closely for any signs of stress when on the job, and to only consider using dogs that enjoy this kind of activity. The bottom line is: if it's not fun for your dog, don't do it.
