Piper – Old English sheepdog
Breed: Old English Sheepdog
More information about this dog
Introducing Piper the female Old English sheepdog stunt dog and pet model. She is typical of her breed being very bouncy, energetic & playful, she loves being the centre of attention; a really a happy clown of a dog. Her hair has been left natural so she has the typical shaggy dog look & while her hair is normally tied up so she can see, it can also be left down to covering her eyes.
Pet Acting/Modelling Ability
Piper loves training & learning new tricks passing her novice trick title at only 3 months & going on to become the world’s first Old English Sheepdog trick dog champion. Being a trick dog she has all obedience skills & knows lots of tricks too. She is always learning new behaviours & can pick new skills easily. Piper also takes agility & heel-work to music lessons & has her Gold good citizen award, meaning she can take direction well, from a distance and she will also respond to commands from a stranger/actor with no issues. This unique pet is unfazed by being in front of an audience with loud music or an unfamiliar setting as she is a well-socialised animal.
