Dora is a beautiful Liver and White English Springer Spaniel animal actor with an exceptional level of training. Dora grew up on the media scene, and is completely unphased by photography, film equipment, and busy productions in general. She has worked with drones, cranes, moving vehicles, and other animals such as horses.
Dora has no prey drive which makes her great for working with other animals. She is really good at working with actors too, and has been trick trained to look at, or interact with strangers. This talented Spaniel is a high-energy and very fit dog talent, with a lot of stamina. She has previously performed roles with a lot of running or jumping with ease.
Her handler is a dog trainer and can teach new behaviors on request with notice. To date, Dora has competed in Obedience and Qualified for Novice. She has won an Obedience Class at Crufts and was Pre beginners Champion 2018. She is Clicker trained, mostly on a visual or verbal cue and can also learn chain behaviours at speed if needed.
Dora does not behave like a typical Spaniel, instead of being manic and self-employed, she is extremely loyal and focused on her handler. Overall, she has NEVER failed a recall and will take cues from a significant distance.
Dora has grown up in the media industry, her first job was a stills shoot for a pet food company, she completed her first film role at 6 months old. She has since done music videos, stills, adverts to name but a few.
This talented pet is suitable for a range of complex briefs requiring pet talent. Dora was recently booked to appear on the Movoflex Virbac products specialised in joint support for active dogs.
