Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier
More information about this dog
Jess was born in 2009 and is a Staffordshire bull terrier. Rescued at just 5 months old she had no manners, no recall, wasn’t house trained and was hand shy. Now she has come such a long way over the year and is a very happy go lucky friendly girl who gets on great with adults, children and other dogs. So much so she had her PAT Dog assessment.
What a great advocate of how amazing rescue dogs and Staffordshire Bull Terriers can be and how they just need love and guidance. She loves her treats but sometimes she is only to work for a toy.
Pet Acting/Modelling Ability
Jess started trick training when she was 5 years so hasn’t always been a trick dog. She became a Trick Dog Champion at the age of 5 and has 5 official trick dog titles, Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, Expert and Trick Dog Champion. Being the 6th Staffy TDCH in the world and the 4th in the UK. Unsurprisingly going by her awards Jess knows basic commands and also more advanced tricks.
She has a great temperament and is very laid back who is used to being dressed up and posing/do tricks in costumes she will wear hats, glasses ect. She is great with other dogs and will do tricks and pose when they are around without being distracted. She lives with 7 cats and 2 hamsters, so she is used to small animals also.

Dog Acting/Modelling Experience
Jess has modelled for the ‘Company of Animals’, she is used to photography and a studio environment and therefore used to sitting & posing in different positions and locations. Recent work includes Madame Tussaud’s for the launch of the Tom Hardy waxwork and an advert for Stonewater Housing Group which Jess had to play a huge role and bond with an actor for the brief. She worked exceptionally well on set and played her role to a high standard.
In all, Jess is a happy dog & super intelligent who picks up new tricks and commands very easily making her an ideal dog for any brief requiring pet talent.
