Please welcome Bao, the Shar Pei dog model, and animal actor. This lovely boy has that gorgeous wrinkled face typical of the breed. This playful boy is super friendly and super lovable. He enjoys making new friends, and his training as a service dog means that he’s patient; a great attribute for an animal actor.
Shar Peis are not known for their affection, but Bao’s rare sweet nature makes him an obvious choice as a dog model for a range of campaigns. His owner describes him as a happy soul and a pet model that brings warmth to any setting. His natural patience and confidence mean that Bao is never nervous about meeting new people and he’ll jump into action with ease. He’s great with both children and other dogs, making him a versatile animal actor that can work with virtually anycast. Bao is also highly treat motivated, making him easy to handle.
In his work as a service dog for an autistic child, Bao learned to improve his natural patience even further, making him a wonderful dog model. He is trick trained with a basic set of skills and he can respond from a distance. Bao would be ideal for film and television roles suited to his skill set, but he may be best placed in pet photography campaigns.
This beautiful dog model loves the limelight, and quite rightly too! He has starred in a London student fashion shoot where he walked the catwalk with style and grace, proving his ability as a stunning pet model from the word ‘go’.
Bao’s experience as a service dog is incredibly relevant to his overall performance as an animal actor. He worked in a professional capacity, developing his obedience, allowing him to take commands efficiently.
