More information about this dog

Introducing Nova, the stunning Border Collie trick dog model. She is one very talented pet actor with a super sweet and loving personality. Typical of the breed, she has a beautiful black and white coat colouring that is very eager to learn.

Pet Acting/Modelling Ability

Nova is a highly skilled and well-socialised animal talent who learns new skills easily. She is always keen to work and loves human companionship, therefore, she is more than happy to work with model and actor strangers on set in a studio or alternatively a location environment. Nova can also work with other dog models on a range of marketing and advertising campaigns.

With her being agility trained, she can perform a long sequence of commands, which is beneficial for film and photography briefs. Nova can also be trained in new behaviours if needed, with notice. She works best for food rewards or toy rewards with positive reinforcement.
