Dog Acting/Modelling Experience
Betty has worked on the Stella McCartney fashion editorial shoot – a Stella Lunar New Year campaign. Most recently, Buddies Pet Insurance educational video filmed over 2 days working with an actress. Feedback: “the crew were overwhelmed with how exceptionally obedient Betty was and were blown away by her skills and tricks” and how well she worked on set. Most recently Betty has worked with Lauren Childs – The dog with nice ears for a book launch in Battersea park as a trick display with 3 other dogs and also hired for a private A-list celebrity party in Chelsea, booked to perform tricks for the children.
She gets lots of attention from people as she is very small & pretty but she’s no Paris Hilton handbag dog so to speak as she is extremely clever! She has brains as well as beauty! She loves people, especially children. She meets all different sized dogs at training & can happily work with both.
Betty is a suitable pet talent for most roles requiring pet talent.
