Name: Betsy Boo

Breed: Border Collie cross Labrador

More information about this dog

Betsy the Amazing Frisbee Dog Border Collie cross Labrador dog model & stunt dog. She is especially known for being one of only 5 official active Disc Dog Teams in the whole of the UK & as a result, is a bit of a doggy geek in more ways than one!

Cross-breed dogs possess characteristics from both breeds and that is certainly the case for Besty meaning she is quick to learn, super talented and aims to please!

Pet Acting / Modelling Ability

Betsy will take direction & work at a distance to both voice and hand signals. Betsy can also work with strangers and will respond to commands from a model/actor as long as she gets a formal introduction and the actor is briefed.  She has and will work around other dogs she has been able to get familiar with and who respect her personal space. Her weaknesses include not being able to work with cats, but she has been in an arena with a Shetland Pony with no reaction off the lead at a major pet event.

She knows over 450 behaviours on cue, with many on hand signal/voice only. Betsy has been taught everything she knows 100% force-free.
