Meet Simba!

Border Collie
Berkshire, South East

Introducing Simba the well trained trick trained Border Collie talent for hire. True to his breed Simba is intelligent, eager to please and shines on set.

A real professional, Simba has stills and film work experience. Moreover, this film dog is a highly well-trained animal with a great skill set and the confidence to match. Simba’s handler is an experienced trick dog trainer and can teach Simba new skills or behaviours on request with notice.

Simba is a very happy active, energetic dog as you would expect from a Border Collie. He is not, however, as hyperactive as most Collie’s, and is very level-headed for his age. This trick-trained Border Collie has great stamina and is happy to repeat the same behaviours many times, ideal for set life. He will happily work with people of all ages including children.

In summary, Simba is a suitable dog for hire for a variety of media briefs. Check out his showreel, where you can also see his array of skills!
