Archie – Cocker Spaniel
Breed: Cocker Spaniel
More information about this dog
Archie is a working Cocker Spaniel dog model who loves to work and train. He is available for hire for pet acting and pet modelling roles.
Pet Acting / Modelling Ability
Archie is a very photogenic young boy and he likes the attention and his unusual lemon roan colour will make him stand out in lifestyle photography shoots or any advertising.
He is an obedient, intelligent young dog; a true pet performer who is eager to participate in various photo-shoots and sets. As a confident boy, he is not fazed by cameras, lighting, camera crew, large crowds and film sets and has a true skill for looking straight down the camera lens – perfect for any photo-shoot.
With a constant drive to please, he is willing to perform tasks/ tricks to a high standard when required, with commands from his handler. He competes in agility at a championship level nationally and internationally.
He is a cheeky, loving, energetic and angelic dog, who is willing to learn new commands, given notice. Working from a distance is not a problem for this confident boy. He can work with other dogs and adults.

In all this, the active and clever little dog is perfect for acting and modelling roles in line with his skill set.
