Pixel – Lurcher
More information about this dog
Urban Paws Animal Talent Agency introduces Pixel, the world’s first trick champion Lurcher. Pixel loves to be busy and he is a cheeky, loving, confident dog. His stunning good looks really stand out, but he is not just a pretty face, this dog is trained to the highest standards.
Pet Acting / Modelling Ability
He loves to meet new people and visit new places, which is great for a top dog model. With great stamina, he is happy to work for longer periods than most. Solid and confident with all animals and people except for squirrels and cats (he can take around 10 mins to calm with small furries – he is a lurcher after all)!
Pixel will happily stay in place for photographs and is comfortable wearing clothing. As well as being fabulous with all people, this clever Lurcher is not phased by camera equipment and is happy to perform tricks at a distance and for other people. All of his tricks can be performed with hand signals or voice commands up to 70 foot away.
As a fully trained assistance dog, he has an extensive list of household tasks. He has also got certificates; KC Bronze, Champion Trick Dog (first Lurcher in the world with that title!) Flyball Dog Advanced and is Grade 3 at Kennel Club Agility. Pixel can chain commands and it is possible to put several tricks together to combine them, which is great for dog acting roles. He travels well and will get in any car etc.
