Dog Acting/Modelling Experience
This role involved Ness taking part in some of the lead work, with different actors handling her, performing a magic trick and ‘dancing’ during a duet with Belle. She had to know her cue’s and timings when on/off stage meaning she will be good at this in future projects.
The performance featured a live band, smoke, sound and lighting effects which Ness was comfortable with.
This Cairn Terrier dog model is the perfect choice for any role that comes her way. She is charismatic and intelligent and will perform incredibly well at any brief required of her.
