Meet Barley!

Australian Shepherd
Kent, South East

Barley, the trained dog model for hire, captivates everyone he meets with his friendly and gentle nature. His constant happy disposition brings a sense of relaxation and refreshment to those around him. He draws people to take a break from their busy schedules and spend a few moments in his presence. When it comes to interacting with other dogs, Barley’s calm and cautious approach creates a harmonious atmosphere, even with dogs that have difficulty being around others. Remarkably, he has formed deep friendships with two “problem dogs,” helping them overcome their reactivity and forging bonds within just a few hours.

Barking is a rarity for Barley, only happening when provoked or when he wants to engage another dog in play. Aggression or biting has never been a concern with him. His interactions with children are equally impressive, as he remains patient even when they display exuberance in patting his head. Barley effortlessly adjusts his energy levels as needed, displaying an enthusiastic demeanor when required and a relaxed attitude when called for.

Barley is an absolute joy, and his owner feels fortunate to have him. During a photoshoot for Marriott Hotels, Barley accompanied his owner to Primrose Hill Park. He elevated the shot by looking over London. Working alongside the models, this trained dog model for hire, flawlessly responded to their commands as if they came directly from his owner. He paid little attention to a group of passing dogs and obediently returned to his owner behind the camera upon request.
