Meet Maple!

Australian Shepherd
Somerset, South West

Say hello to Maple, the stunning Australian Shepherd for hire. These medium sized dogs are very good with children and tend to get along well with other pets. They have a very easy-going temperament, making them great family pets as well as herding animals.

Trained to a very high standard, Maple has excelled from a young age. Her handler has trick trained Maple and as a result she is suitable for the more complex of briefs requiring expert skill. Maple’s skill list is extensive, there really is very little she can’t perform. Furthermore, she can be taught new behaviours on request with notice.

Maple absolutely loves people. This well socialised animal actor is very people and child friendly and loves receiving attention and affection from everyone that she meets. Additionally Maple is calm around other dogs and is no stranger to new environments and she takes it all in her stride.

Alongside her handler, the duo are regulars at hiking, paddle-boarding, cycling, shopping and Hoopers. She is confident in large crowds and not fazed by much at all. She doesn’t flinch at loud strange noises including fireworks or unusual objects making her ideal for set-life.

Lastly, Maple the Australian Shepherd is a reliable pet on set, ideal for stills and moving imagery.
