More information about this dog
Introducing Sammy the English Shepherd male; an extremely versatile breed of working dog of the Collie lineage. This unique boy is handsome in looks and talented by nature.
Pet Acting/Modelling Ability
This talented pet has a large repertoire of moves and tricks and loves to perform! He will respond to commands from others from a distance to voice and hand signals, including strangers if the person takes some time to bond with him beforehand. He is a sensitive but loving boy and loves making new friends but can ignore people too if asked. This well-socialised pet aims to please and is very focused on the task at hand making him an ideal pet for any busy set or studio shoot. His handler is a keen dog trainer and can teach Sammy any new skills or behaviours on request with notice.

Dog Acting/Modelling Experience
Sammy has pet modelling experience having worked for a photographer in a studio environment. He regularly takes part in demoing heelwork to music on a number of different events in front of large crowds with no issues.
He is good with other animals and lives with a cat loves nothing more than giving them a good clean and lick. He is a very polite dog so can be wary of dogs he is unfamiliar with especially when they are approaching him very exuberantly. He is happy when having suitable space from them and is happy to ignore them as long as he is within his personal space. He can be friends with any dog as long as they are introduced appropriately. He is good with people, especially when he is given time to bond with them but due to his age he can get very excited by a lot of loud, running children and would find it difficult to focus and work in that environment.
In all, Sammy is a wonderful pet talent ideal for a wide variety of roles requiring an expert skill set.
