Dog Acting/Modelling Experience

This handsome Collie has previously worked on stage and also has filming experience. He has appeared in WhatCar Magazine including their online video of the best dog-friendly cars. Most recently he has taken on the role of Edison in a stage production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the Pavilion Theatre in Bournemouth.

The director of the theatre production stated he was delighted with Bodhi especially his training and handlers assistance. Bodhi was a joy to work with and worked confidently in a very busy show environment and was a firm favourite with child and adult performers alike. He learns quickly to follow new commands delivered by the cast.

 

As a breed, Beardies are very biddable but can be stubborn. They are also highly intelligent so any new behaviours can be taught on request with notice

Bodhi was recognised at Crufts 2018 for being an exemplary example of the breed, winning a special award for his assistance dog work. He has a great temperament being playful and willing. He loves other dogs, humans and children. He’s a little head shy with new people so moves his head out of the way if someone approaches, but never shown aggression and is happy once he’s met the person. In all, Bodhi worked comfortably with four child actors and was attentive, well disciplined and easy for them to perform with.  He seemed very relaxed and enjoyed the rehearsal process in what could be a very noisy and distracting environment.

 

In all, this stunning pet is an ideal talent for a wide variety of roles.
