Puppy and Kitten Applications
How to register my kitten or puppy to be a model
The short answer is that we do not sign cats and dogs under 12 months of age. Pets at this age are likely to change in appearance rapidly, and no sooner would we have created their profile, than they would have outgrown it.
Instead, we offer the option of keeping your details on file internally, in the event a job comes up requiring a young animal. All puppies and kittens listed this way MUST be at least 12 weeks of age and be fully vaccinated.
We will keep this information on file until the animal is 12 months of age (unless told otherwise). After this, you will need to complete an animal model form if you intend for your pet to stay on as a model. Please note, that adult dog and cat models are required to have at least basic obedience training, so it may be worthwhile working towards this while they are young. You can read more about this here.
Submitting your information
If you have a puppy or kitten and would like for us to keep your information temporarily on file please submit an email to Dogs@urbanpawsuk.com (puppies), or Cats@urbanpawsuk.com (kittens) along with the following information:
– Your name, phone number and email address
– Your general location
– Puppy/kitten’s name, date of birth and breed
– Recent images
– Recent video
We look forward to hearing from you.
