Doggy Modeling

Does anyone do this with their golden? What is entailed? How does one go about finding out about it?

I would like to get Teddi into local ads or whatever or at least find out what is involved. She has a beautiful expressive face and I think it would be fun. It would also be nice if we could get some money for her work. I know the pay is not high, but anything is better than a kick in the pants. Just in the past week she has $150 in vet bills and we have another $200 on Monday for her hip follow up. She was diagnosed today with a UTI her antibiotics are expensive. Her mother could use all the help she can get.

If you find anything out, please let me know. I have really thought about doing that with Danny, too.

In Craig's List, I have seen different companies looking for different subjects for movie and commercial parts- never seen a part for a dog - but you never know!

Tally and Tango are in the Fetchdog mail catalogs as little ones(3 months&8 months), and on the cover at a bit older ages with Finny. You get paid once, but then the photos get used for years as they wish. It's kind of weird and kind of fun at the same time. They probably have 100 photos, but they are not very nice about sharing them with their proud owner!

Here is a web site for recruiting animals, particularly dogs, for 'careers in show biz." There are instructions provided for anyone who is interested in submitting their pet's photos for consideration.

Hope this helps. Good luck and let us know how this works out
