Pet Acting / Modelling Ability
He is a very proud and confident boy who loves cuddles with the family but is by no means a ‘big softie’ and is a suitable dog for specific roles. Ideal for film work.
He works alongside his owner with the ability to switch on/off, between being aggressive and calm. This is a great advantage for certain leadership roles. If a certain role is required of a stable dog and in a very controlled manner. Both Hank and his owner are experienced in protection training and working trials, so obedience and learning new tricks is something that they as a team are familiar with.
He is naturally a very intelligent dog who is at his happiest when working. His owner is an animal handler so Hank is trained to a high level.

Dog Acting / Modelling Experience
Hank has animal acting experience having worked on a film where he and his owner were contracted in for a specialist role for a Warner Brother’s production working alongside Jude Law . Hank’s role in the film was to behave aggressively and look ferocious on camera whilst all the time being safely under his owner’s control. Understandably he was expected to ‘switch off’ in between takes so as to not interrupt the flow of production. Hank was trained & handled on set Personal Protection Dogs Ltd.
