The Border Collie is known for being one of the most lively, fast, and intelligent dog breeds. Collies are most commonly thought of as working dogs and farmhands, but they also make fantastic animal actors. They are quick learners, and their intelligence makes trick training a far more straightforward task than it is for other breeds. This medium-sized canine is an attractive choice for more technical film and advertising productions that require a well-trained animal actor.
Between the Roman’s and Viking’s conquest of England, the dog breeding scene changed greatly. The Romans brought with them large, powerful herding dogs to protect their livestock, while the Vikings favoured speed and agility with spritz-type herders that could cover great distances in a matter of seconds. As these two dog breeds were exposed to each other, the Border Collie breed started to form. Offering unrivalled herding pedigree, the Border Collie established itself as the world’s greatest herder.
Its impressive physical attributes make the Border Collie great to watch and they prominently feature in all sorts of movement-based advertising and marketing campaigns. Their boundless energy makes them popular as both pets and working dogs, and their sweet temperament ensures that they are comfortable working with other animals as well as children and younger actors.
Safety is our chief priority at Urban Paws, due to this we ensure that all of our animals available for hire are fully checked to ensure they are trained and comfortable within a range of environments. Before we accept an animal into our talent agency, we also carry out medical due diligence to ensure that they are healthy and up-to-date on all of their latest checks and vaccinations.
