Dog Acting/Modelling Experience
Archie is one of the first psychiatric assistance dogs in the UK and has been featured on the radio, in newspapers and in Dogs Monthly Magazine raising awareness. He is also an ambassador for Lurchers, who can also have a bad reputation, proving they can be incredibly smart and obedient.
Archie loves people of all ages including children but can be over-excited to start with, but settles down very quickly. He is the same with dogs once he has had a formal introduction he soon settles.
