Meet Zym!

Australian Silky Terrier
Cheshire, North West

This is Zym, the Australian Silky Terrier dog model for hire. This handsome dog model and animal actor is the only Silky Terrier with a trick dog title in the UK. One of only four worldwide to attain his advanced level. Firstly, he’s an energetic and friendly boy who loves to meet new people and is happy working with other dogs.  ‘Skilled’ is an understatement when talking about Zym, as this Australian Silky Terrier for hire. Also, he is one of the most impressive animal actors in the country. He’ll be perfect for roles in film and television productions as his trick list is vast and he has been taught many advanced skills.

Furthermore, Zym is a charming Australian Silky Terrier dog model with no issues working with people or other dog models. He is described as ‘lively, inquisitive, and spirited’ by his owner, reflecting the natural characteristics of his breed. The Silky Terrier is similar to the Yorkshire Terrier! Albeit with a bigger body, beautiful silky coats, and a more adventurous attitude. Overall, Zym is no exception and is an active dog model and animal actor who loves to be challenged. An ideal pet talent for the more complex briefs.

Little Zym is an ace choice both as a dog model and animal actor. As he has been trained to a very high standard not only by his owner but by a number of professional organisations.


He has achieved his Bronze Kennel Club Good Citizen Award as well as the novice, intermediate, and advanced Do More With Your Dog trick training titles.

Additionally, this Aussie Silky dog model is a regular at Crufts and represented his breed this year on the Saturday and Sunday; the two busiest days. Also, Zym boasts on set experience as this stunning dog model was employed by Scruffs to model the brand’s new dog bed. In addition, he can be found across the Pets and Friends website promoting their products and deals!
