Barney – Standard Dachshund
Breed: Standard Dachshund
More information about this dog
Urban Paws introduces Barney a standard brindle Dachshund dog model – a pretty rare colour for Dachshunds!
Pet Acting / Modelling Ability
He has an extremely handsome face and loves to strike a pose. As a complete softy, he loves meeting new dogs…no matter the size! He lives with his feline siblings and has been raised around horses so is fine with most animals, which is great for a dog model.
Barney is trained for a wide range of tricks/commands & is very eager to please. He’s definitely a Mummy’s boy but can take voice and hand signals from others as long as they are delivered correctly.
He is food obsessed, easy to train and a very quick learner. He can grasp the basics of a new trick in around 30 minutes. This clever boy is great at taking commands at a distance and can hold a pose with no problems.
