This is good to know Joel. I was really hoping you wouldn't be in their corner on nutrition

I am not into obedience, agility, or any type of training beyond regular training at home. You know, the basics...........sit, stay, leave it, and of course good leash manners.

Then of course we have our little repertoire of cutesy stuff like play dead, shake, roll over. But nothing beyond that here for us, so you won't likely see me much on the training forum

Thanks.. I just wanted to clarify that....By the way, some of the best pet owners I have been around don't train their dogs to do much.... But they're obviously your best friends, and that's all that matters...

Here is a question. If you had a dog who had many behaviors, let's say, such as:

Carry an object
sit up
speak
stay
sit,down,come (of course)
head up/down
wave
bow

How would you go about getting this dog work in a local area?

Are you talking about for movie work and commercials, and if so what area? A lot of it depends on where you live.

The reason I mentioned the city is you want to find out what kind of market there is for providing this service. There are two searches I would do:
1. I would check and see if there were local production companies in your area. If so, that is a good thing. If there are quite a few, those would be your prospective clients.

2. I would check and see if there are still photographers in your area. A lot of what we do are still shoots too. So that is another market for you.

If you see that there are enough in your area, it may very well be worth your while to start setting up a business and providing these people with dogs. If that is the case I can help you take the next step.

The behaviors that you had listed are all the behaviors that they will probably be asking for too. With the RETRIEVE, I would not only train the dog to pick something up, but also bring an object to a person. There is a huge call for that. I would just make sure that you have some good distance on each behavior, because you never know where they will decide to put the camera. (20 feet) Remember that the easiest shot can turn into the hardest shot based on where the camera is.

You do endorse Bil-Jac though and it's not much better...

Yes it is, and it is all documented. But I am not going to use this forum or website to talk about other products, good or bad. This thread is about me helping you train animals for movies and commercials.
