Skyler – Mixed breed terrier
Breed: Mixed breed terrier
More information about this dog
Skyler the mixed-breed dog model is a small terrier mix who is highly trained and used to working on a film set. This pretty pooch has a unique appearance with bundles of character.
Pet Acting/Modelling Ability
Skyler can take a while to get used to other dogs so is not suitable for off-lead work with other dogs. She has vast experience with stills and video shoots and therefore knows many behaviours via verbal and visual cue. Skyler will respond to commands and will work for other people/strangers and at a distance. She has been trained with clicker training so picks up new behaviours quickly. This highly intelligent pet is handled and trained by a professional dog trainer and can be taught new tricks/skills on request with notice. Unfortunately, she is not suitable to work off lead around other dogs, is she is off lead she is best working alone.

Dog Acting/Modelling Experience
Skyler has both pet modelling and animal acting experience having shot a stills shoot for Skinner’s pet food packaging, filming for LV insurance who were sponsoring ITV’s Jekyll & Hyde, theatre stage show for Legally Blonde where she played both ‘Rufus’ and ‘Bruiser’ in a sold-out 5 show run! She has also filmed a motorbike advert.
In all, Skyler is not great with other dogs until she knows them. She does live with a cat but does try to play with him and will try to chase others out and about. However, she is great with people of all ages including children.
This unique animal actor is an experienced dog suitable for a variety of roles requiring expert pet talent.
