Miniature poodle, Basil, is a highly skilled dog with bags of personality. He’s a real showstopper, and even though he’s small, he’s got very large hair! It’s rare to see a poodle with the continental cut, especially in the smaller versions of the breed, but Basil dons his curls with style.
Basil is a much loved family dog and a bit of a celebrity in his local area. He’s friendly with all he meets and he also has a loyal following on Instagram where he posts about his adventures and his fabulous hair! His fan base likes to learn about his grooming techniques, particularly toothbrushing and bath time. As a micro-influencer he’s got a lot of experience promoting boutique brands.
A fine example of his breed, Basil displays the best traits of the miniature poodle. He is very human like in mannerisms and is incredibly intelligent. He’s a clown by nature, amusing his humans all the time. This good looking boy is a real stunner and a capable dog actor.
Basil loves to be the centre of attention and he achieves this not only with his appearance, but with his long skills list too. Being super intelligent, Basil loves to learn new tricks, skills and behaviours as part of his daily enrichment and mental stimulation. At home, he loves to practice his brain game dog puzzles. He has a lot of training and being agility trained means that he has excellent impulse control; a trait particularly required in filming environments.
Suitable for the obvious glamour, fashion and stylish roles, Basil isn’t afraid to get down and dirty in the mud! He simply loves being in the outdoors, running through woodland; his showreel proves how great he looks in motion.
He has perfected the ‘paws up’ pose which is perfect for scenes where he needs to jump up at a table, look over a wall and more. His comical facial expression completely enhances this skill. He’s also great at looking at food and not eating it; another talent we’re asked to provide frequently.
Basil is well socialised which means that he can work with other dogs and any age of human actor. He’s particularly good with children. His lead work is exceptional and he will happily trot alongside an actor or actress, taking commands from actors as well as his handler.
He has perfected a number of skills that are suitable in TV and film studios and having a solid presence online means he’s perfect for social media videos as well.
With his showstopper appearance, gorgeous temperament and solid skills list, Basil is a well-trained dog suitable for many productions.
Basil is a very good looking red (almost golden) miniature poodle. A fine example of his breed, he has the classic ‘continental’ hairstyle. Though this can be groomed for other styles if required. He is such a photogenic dog and we’re sure you’ll agree.
His golden coat works with many colour palettes in the photography studio and because Basil is such a friendly dog, he can work with human models for fashion photography. Basil also enjoys wearing costumes, dog clothing and accessories; he’s even happy with hats and glasses.
Because of his exceptional breeding, Basil’s image can be used for breed merchandising such as door signs, beakers, calendars and greetings cards and much more.
He’s a very versatile dog and enjoys working with props. He’s able to hold a solid pose and works well in any professional environment.
