Buttons – Shih Tzu
Breed: Shih Tzu
More information about this dog
Buttons is a 5-year-old female Shih Tzu. This dog model is a bit of a diva at times which always makes people giggle but loves to please. She has a lovely calm gentle temperament but can be equally playful when she’s around toys & treats. She loves to do tricks & dog agility with either a treat or toy – though she does tend to think with her stomach!
Dog Modelling/ Acting Ability
Buttons is incredibly intelligent & responsive at her young age, as she’s keen to learn new things & perform known commands. This is helped by the fact that her owner has used positive reinforcement in training, using methods such as clickers, treats & toys to make her more enthusiastic. Positivity through training is all Buttons has known from day one, as she started training when she was a puppy. She knows approximately 80 commands and is a very quick learner as she picks up new things rather swiftly. She loves to perform in front of people – she is quite a show-off! She can work from a distance to voice and hand signals.
