Meet Barney!

Chow Chow
City of London, London

Meet Barney, the big-grinning, food-loving Chow Chow animal for hire. This incredible fluff-ball is a good-natured chap who is described as an ‘extremely well-behaved boy who loves to show off. HE was demonstrating qualities that are rare for the breed. Chow Chows are known to be aloof, unfriendly, and difficult to train, none of which define this amazing bit of animal talent. Barney is well-trained in obedience. He loves to meet new people, especially children, who this stunning dog model can’t get enough of!

Barney can respond to all basic commands from a distance and on cue and has been trained to a high standard. This makes him a great choice of animal actor for film, television, and advertising productions that require a talented Chow.

If you’ve been looking to rent an extremely photogenic Chow Chow, look no further. Barney is a total stunner; a fluffy monster with a heart of gold and a gorgeous smile. Book him today to avoid disappointment.
