Meet Hugo!

Cocker Spaniel (English) 
North Yorkshire, Yorkshire and the Humber

Handsome Hugo is a male Cocker Spaniel dog model. This Spaniel for hire is a popular pet with a stunning golden coat that shows up on camera beautifully. He is naturally photogenic and a classic English breed that is easily recognisable in advertising and marketing.

Hugo has good basic training, a reliable pet on set and will respond to training from a distance to both voice and hand signals. He is a well travelled and well socialised pet, happy to visit new places and comfortable meeting new people including children.

This fun loving happy-go-lucky dog, spreads joy and smiles to all that he meets. Hugo has a cheeky happy face and is an all-round lovable character. Hugo’s ability to portray his personality through his photography is a joy to many. His adventurous nature is also a bonus for this animal extra especially for location shoots.

In all, Hugo the Cocker Spaniel is an ideal pet talent for stills and moving imagery.

Handsome Hugo has pet modelling experience having worked for supermarket giants Aldi UK and Tesco. The Aldi job demonstrates Hugo’s experience of outdoor shoots as this was based in an outdoor park which required him to shoot for Dog ice cream and the Tesco shoot was based in a studio on a green screen with a professional camera flash.

Hugo, the Cocker Spaniel, recently starred in an advertisement for Homebase, with the tagline “Create a home you love.”
