Ru – Great Dane
Breed: Great Dane
More information about this dog
Ru the Great Dane is our mature pet talent aged 10 years. He is white with blue merle markings in harlequin pattern & is a superstar & all round Mr Nice Guy. He is trick trained to a very high level & is bomb proof in all environments.
Pet Acting/Modelling Ability
Ru has done 4 years of HTM display team performances at Crufts & has also performed at numerous other shows including Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials, Belton International Horse Trials, Just Dogs Live to name but a few. He is now more mature in years (this is not obvious in his looks, he still looks a young dog) but with that comes a lifetime of experience meaning he really is an ‘old pro’ having seen & done it all before!
This giant breed is the only Great Dane in the UK to do Freestyle & having qualified through to advanced level (even reaching the Crufts semi-finals) he is the most advanced Great Dane in the world at Freestyle. He also has his Kennel Club Good Citizen Gold Award but his training is far more advanced than that. He LOVES posing & is completely reliable around everyone & everything
He is very ‘Mother Hen’ about people & dogs, with a gentle & caring temperament. Ru is very focused & obedient, being capable of working from at a distance & follow a complex of commands on cue.

Dog Acting/Modelling Experience
He has been featured in Your Dog Magazine & also done a photo shoot for the Daily Telegraph as well as other UK newspapers & online magazines in association with the Kennel Club with the UK’s tallest & smallest men & a Chihuahua.
He has a striking ‘Regal & Nobel’ look (Great Danes are known as the Apollo of dogs) but he is also capable of doing funny & cute photos too. If you want a very highly trained, bomb-proof, beautiful & striking Great Dane then Ru’s the dog for you.
This handsome chap is a suitable animal actor for complex roles requiring expert pet talent
