More information about this dog
Marcel is a rare Pembroke Welsh Corgi dog model. He is purebred and Kennel Club registered. A stunning animal actor. His longer hair comes from a recessive gene (only 5% of corgis are born “fluffy” like him).
He is strongly built and athletic (he goes to agility), with a long body on short legs. This is a natural corgi shape, he just looks extra big because of his longer hair but he is perfectly healthy, with a waist and no weight to lose, he weighs 15,3kg
Marcel is very empathetic and with humans of all ages and abilities (including babies, toddlers and the elderly), he is extremely friendly with everyone he meets and very patient (he’s been a therapy visiting dog at a local hospital since 2017). He is the sweetest corgi. He is friendly, always happy to meet new people and animals, outgoing, confident, adaptable. He is used to changing and noisy environments, happy in a busy city (he lives in London) but also in the country, on the beach, in the snow… or a photo studio, And is not scared by sudden noises or flashes (not even fireworks). Travelling is not a problem for this pup, and he is used to travelling in the UK and abroad by car, ferry, air and public transport.
Pet Acting/Modelling Ability
This handsome chap has been trained in obedience and agility and is confident with commands as well as tricks. He is a food-driven and an extremely clever dog; always keen to learn new tricks and does so quickly. He can be taught a new behaviour on request with notice. Marcel lives with a pet and lifestyle photographer and a chef, so he enjoys posing for a camera & filming (in a studio environment, including with flashlights, as well as outdoors, in busy environments, near food & wearing props, on his own or with other dogs). This handsome Corgi will work to voice and hand signals and at a distance with no issues.
