Because of his build, he doesn’t really like hard surfaces so will only do certain tricks such as crawl and roll over on a soft surface and would also prefer to sit and lay down on this type of surface. His preferred choice out of sit, stand and lay down would be to lie down.
Barney is a gentle, calm, social, confident dog who hasn’t got a bad bone in his body. He is very quiet and you can take him anywhere and he just goes with the flow. He is well socialised with a variety of environments and doesn’t get anxious in unfamiliar surrounds.
This dog model is excellent in the company of dogs in all sizes and he has a submissive character. He is brilliant around children, sheep, cows and people. He is happy to stand near cats/birds on the lead in a quiet manner but would chase if they moved quickly.
In all this handsome hound makes a stunning pet talent for a huge array of modelling or acting roles.
