Anyone can join our agency,
if you think your pet has what it takes.
Animals are increasingly used for marketing and advertising purposes. Every animal you see on TV, in magazines and in lifestyle shots is a professional pet model or actor.
There isn’t one specific type of pet that’s particularly in demand over any others and your animal doesn’t need to be a certain breed to be an animal star. Mixed breeds are in high demand for pet modelling, as are pedigrees. Indeed, many different types of pets are popular for different kinds of work and that’s why we accept most well-trained pets to offer our clients.
Your pet’s profile will be assessed by lots of agents, photographers and of course film directors who are looking for animal hire for their specific brief. All of our work is always paid, which varies – all depending on the job.
Unfortunately, we don’t take puppies or kittens (YOUNG ANIMALS) onto the agency books. However, we do get lots of work for young animals and we would be happy to hold onto your details should any work come in that is suitable.
In this instance, please get in touch via email only.
Steps to take
Get some photos of your pet on a plain background, headshots, sitting, standing, side view and full body. Action and personality shots are also important and if your pet can work with props (holding a lead, wearing a bandana etc) then send them over too.
You can complete the form below by following the button below.
Fill out the form. Please put as much info as possible as this will help decide what type of work is suitable for your pet.
Take a video of your pet in action, showing off all their basic commands sit/down/stay/top tricks and commands. Your pet needs to be able to take direction from approximately five to ten feet away from you.
Email the membership form, the photos and the video (also known as a showreel) to email@example.com or Influencers@urbanpawsuk.com
An agent will review your application and get in touch as soon as possible.
For puppy and kittens
While we are unable to sign puppies and kittens under the age of 12 months to the agency books as official models and actors, we do often find ourselves with opportunities for young animals. Due to this, we are happy to temporarily hold onto details in the event a suitable job arises.
