Name: Gaia

Breed: German Shepherd

More information about this dog

Urban Paws Animal Talent and Acting Agency introduce Gaia the German Shepherd. This impressive girl weighs in at 36kg. She comes from incredible working lines (her mum even received and an award for bravery)!

Pet Acting / Modelling Ability

This clever German Shepherd has been training since she was a tiny pup. She is able to work around large crowds of people. In part this is due to the military working dog displays she performs at, doing things such as casualty search, defend and pursue.  Having experience in these specialised areas will work well particularly for film work requiring security-type dogs.

Gaia has a strong work ethic and loves to train which is great for a dog model in TV, film and media work. From still photography to filming roles Gaia has the ability to really make an impact on your next project.

All of Gaia’s training can be performed at a distance. She is good with people and can sometimes forget her manners with other dogs but this is not an issue when working. Small furries are best to be avoided when working.  She can work with actors if they are given some coaching.
