Dog Acting/Modelling Experience
Check out the videos below to see a ‘stick attack’ scenario, where after several warnings the criminal failed to stop and release the weapon. It also shows a clear demonstration of Charlie being deployed upon command to stop and help detain the criminal. Once Charlie has a ‘grip’ his trainer gives clear instructions to release the weapon, stand back and stand still. Once this was achieved Charlie was then instructed to release ‘out’ and return to his trainer.
Has worked with Pets at Home as the face of Ava pet food packaging for German Shepherds.
Due to Charlie’s training and commands, he is an ideal dog for specific film and photography briefs. He is a gentle giant with a lovely nature and very easy to work with.
