Meet Charlie!

Nova Duck Tolling Retriever
Bristol, South West

Please give a warm welcome to Charlie, the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever dog model and animal actor. This cheeky chappy is known for his unique look and his ability to look fabulous in pet clothing and accessories. More importantly, however, is this dog model’s gorgeous personality, as he’s one of the sweetest, calmest animal actors working today. Tollers love having something to do and are always keen to learn; Charlie is certainly no exception!

Happy-go-lucky Charlie will work for food, toys, or attention and has only been trained using positive methods and clicker rewards.  He responds to voice or hand commands from a distance by any handler or actor. This stunning animal actor is a quick learner and can be taught new commands with notice. He’s the perfect bit of animal talent for a wide range of briefs, though we think he’d be perfect in roles requiring a skilled outdoor dog with a stand-out, unique aesthetic.

The fantastic Charlie has modelled for a range of smaller brands and has produced some wonderful pet photography, most commonly based in the outdoors. His Toller breed lends itself to campaigns set outside as these dogs love to run and love to be busy. All clients that have worked with Charlie have found him to be well natured and an asset to their marketing campaigns, whether they be print, online, social media, or a combination of the three.

Charlie got his big break when he lent his stunning ginger look to Barbour for a fashion focused campaign. This superb Toller proved his talent as a dog model as he excelled in the studio environment without distraction. Collaboration with a well known brand like Barbour presents a dog model that has bag of talent and is here to stay.
