Our opinion is that if your pet is trained correctly to perform in front of a camera, often surrounded by 20-50 crew members, a director, producer(s), studio executives and other professional actors, then it can act.

Our aim to provide the highest quality service for our clients and highest standards of care for our animals. We endeavour to continually educate ourselves in the latest methods regarding the use of animals in the Fil, television and entertainment industry.
