Flat-Coated Retriever, Fluke, is a young dog actor and model. Her coat sheen is stunning and she looks great at the side of both male and female actors. She’s a truly beautiful dog in both nature and looks.
Her trick training and background of assistance work means that Fluke is a highly skilled dog. She has high intelligence and is very alert which is particularly useful for long days on set.
Brave Fluke is literally a life-saver and has an inseparable bond with her human who she assists for health reasons. Her maternal instincts are strong and she loves her job of looking after her handler; this is extended to other animals that she shares her household with.
Fluke lives up to her breed’s nature; she is a happy-go-lucky pup that loves to act the clown when she’s not at work. She is very caring and trusting and really enjoys meeting new humans and animals.
A very well-behaved and polite dog, Fluke is exceptionally gentle and excels in her assistance dog training.
Whilst some videographers find working with dark colours slightly more difficult, Fluke’s expressive eyes make filming a joy.
With exceptional breeding, Fluke is a true retriever. The breed originates from England so she will be well suited to productions that have a British focus. Known as game-keeping dogs, Flat-coated Retrievers look wonderful against a rural backdrop.
Fluke comes from a busy household of 5 cats, 3 dogs and a budgie. She is used to being around a large family including small children. She is also able to work with other dogs of all sizes.
Due to her caring temperament, this large dog can work with both children and adults, even taking commands from strangers.
She is a very sweet dog who loves to please her human. She has had great success at local dog shows with her stunning good looks and friendly personality.
Fluke has beautiful eyes that shine out against her stunning glossy black coat. She is a dream for photoshoots because of her bright eyes and emotive features.
She particularly suits rural settings and her high energy as a retriever makes her suitable for action shots. For the experienced photographer that works well with light, Fluke is perfect for media projects that require a country feel. Being so fit and healthy means that she will also suit dog products that require branding for foods and supplements.
Fluke is an experienced show dog, and is no stranger to studio lights. Her extensive training for both assistance work and tricks means that she has an impressive repertoire.
This confident girl excels when working with children and her lovely behaviour makes her a treat to work with. Fluke revels in the outdoors and her strong recall makes her suitable for location shoots.
