Tinker – Patterdale cross Jack Russell Terrier
Breed: Patterdale cross Jack Russell Terrier
More information about this dog
Tinker is male Patterdale cross Jack Russell Terrier. He is 13.5″ to the shoulder & black & tan. Tinker’s coat is wire haired & is usually hand stripped short through the spring/summer but his hair is left to grow throughout the autumn/winter. He can be stripped at any time as required.
Pet Acting / Modelling Ability
Tinker can work with adults, older children and other dogs of all sizes and can be on set with calm young children/babies. He is trained to take direction both in front of and from behind the camera, from anyone with verbal cues or hand signals. Equally, at home in a studio as outside, he is confident in new or challenging environments. He may need extra support to work around livestock, poultry or small animals.
Tinker’s main asset is his flexibility & speed of learning. Brief or no brief, he can turn his paw to anything required very quickly. Tinker is focused when working & will wait for socialising until work is over. He is clicker trained and will work for food, toys or running games.
This little dog will wear clothing and accessories for the right motivation. He is a very fit, active & agile dog & has the stamina for long days. Unusually for a terrier, Tinker can cope with repetitive actions as needed to get just the right shot.
