Film & Photography

This handsome Collie has previously worked on stage and also has filming experience. Most recently he worked for the fashion brand, Joules, where he had to work with child and adult models.  He performed impeccably onset and received rave reviews from the producer. On another shoot, he worked comfortably with four child actors and was attentive, well-disciplined, and easy for them to perform with.  He was very relaxed and enjoyed the rehearsal process in what could be a very noisy and distracting environment. He has appeared in WhatCar Magazine including their online video of the best dog-friendly cars.

Most recently, Bodhi starred in a shoot for dog food company, Front Of The Pack.


He took on the role of Edison in a stage production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the Pavilion Theatre in Bournemouth. The director of the theatre production stated he was delighted with Bodhi, especially his training and handlers’ assistance. Bodhi was a joy to work with and worked confidently in a very busy show environment. He was a firm favourite with child and adult performers alike. He learns quickly to follow new commands delivered by the cast.

Bodhi was recognised at Crufts 2018 for being an exemplary example of the breed, winning a special award for his assistance dog work.
