Meet Charlie!

German Shepherd
South Yorkshire, Yorkshire and the Humber

Please welcome Charlie, the German Shepherd dog model, and animal actor.  This lovely bit of animal talent exemplifies the beauty of the German Shepherd breed and is a true gentle giant.  As a qualified security dog, Charlie is all business while he’s on the job. Charlie is an incredibly clever dog model that has mastered an impressive array of tricks with passion and enthusiasm.

The German Shepherd breed is famous for its use as police dogs, guard dogs, or security dogs. As the latter, Charlie is fully trained in building and area searches as well as crowd control. He’s officially registered with the National Association of Security Dog Users and is a multi-talented working dog.

When off the clock, Charlie switches tact to become a super dog model and animal actor. You need only look at his array of tricks to see how talented this dog is. He knows all basic commands and also more advanced tricks for a dog of his size such as jumping on command and hug. His training as a security dog bodes well for briefs as an animal actor due to how well-behaved he is. He’s ideal for roles in film, television, or advertising campaigns that require an obedient German Shepherd.
