Meet Hugo!

Golden Retriever
Oxfordshire, South East

Handsome Hugo is a stunning Golden Retriever male dog model. He is very easy-going and very friendly with all that he meets with people of all ages including children. He is very food-driven which makes training relatively easy. Hugo is a well-socialised pet, with daily trips on the train to busy locations such as London central.

Being owned and handled by a professional photographer, Hugo has grown up in front of the camera and is therefore used to being in a studio environment. He is obedient and responds well to all basic commands from a distance to both voice and hand signals.

This Golden Retriever dog model is an easily recognised family pet in the UK. Hugo makes a fantastic addition to most advertising briefs bringing charm, charisma, and of course that familiar family breed.

Finally, he has a huge amount of experience onset making him suitable for a wide variety of pet acting roles.
