    Overview of All 3 Dogs:

    Lily, Boris & Darcy are a stunning family of Golden Retrievers. Being owned and handled by a professional dog trainer, these golden retrievers are very highly trained, highly dependable and highly socialised. They relax in to new environments very quickly and pick up tricks with speed and ease. They have an impressive repertoire of tricks, with most just requiring a hand signal. All three dogs are qualified Therapy dogs, passing the assessment with ease, testament to their particularly gentle and loving temperaments. They now visit patients in hospitals and hospices and children in schools. All three also excel in the international show ring in front of large crowds and frequently pick up rosettes.

    All three roam freely & calmly around all livestock, living with (or previously having lived with) horses, cattle, sheep and chickens. The temperaments make them truly suitable to work alongside any animal. They enjoy being handled by strangers and will even perform their tricks for very young children.


    All three perform the majority of their tricks using a simple hand signal. They often perform their tricks at a large distance. Their ‘sit and recall’ distance is well over 100m, being restricted only by the field that they use for training. Their ‘stay’ patience and trust is limitless making them the perfect model for editorial.

    Dog Acting / Modelling Experience

    All have modelling experience for both stills and film. They have worked with Dyson, Purple Bricks, MoreThan Insurance, Beaphar (Lactol) and they have been in to the BBC Radio Nottingham studio. The dogs are also brand ambassadors for the huge outdoor brand Ruffwear, Wilsons Pet Food and Hunt & Hare. They have also used their social media platform to advertise other small brands (both British and abroad).

    Aged 3, Boris is so incredibly biddable, focused and versatile much like a Border Collie in terms of intelligence and skill level. He has a beautiful dark golden coat & slim build. He truly is a dog in a million. Boris is as soft as butter (melted in the sun) and everyone who meets him just falls in love. Incredibly warm and affectionate, Boris is the perfect dog around babies and strangers and will perform tricks for anyone.

    Boris, uniquely, is totally, and truly Bomb Proof. Like Lily, he is a very advanced trick dog.

    Aged 6, Lily is a thoughtful & calm natured Golden Retriever with a slim build and beautiful cream coat. Her temperament and intelligence match’s her beauty.

Darcy is full of love and patience and adores being in front of the camera. He will work for anyone including very young children and strangers.
