Does your dog have star potential? Would you like them to appear on films, TV programs, commercials and photo shoots? If so, this is the course for you.


While you can never predict what actions a producer will want from their canine actors, there are a number of 'tricks' and behaviours that are useful to teach that can be used as a basis for many other behaviours.


Wednesday 26th June 2024, 10am to 4pm. Standon Village Hall, Hertfordshire, SG11 1LE


During this workshop, Sally Marchant and Jo Croft (Hart) IMDT will work with you, within groups and one-to-one, to teach you and your dog the behaviours that are most useful in this environment


Throughout the day, Sally and Jo will record the skill level of each of the participants and every dog in attendance will have the option to be added to for the option of possible filmwork. This is not obligatory and the day is equally suitable for people who simply want to enjoy the time working with their dog.


There will be a maximum of 8 dogs and handlers at this event. The day is suitable for one dog and one handler teams, it is not possible for people to work multiple dogs. Dogs must be sociable enough with other dogs and people to work in close proximity to others. Please do not bring bitches in season. If you have a place booked and your bitch comes into season, please contact us using the phone number emailed to you at the time of your booking. 


A basic level of training is required but most dogs who have done some training previously should benefit from the day. Please bring treats, toys and any training items you are currently using such as clickers, markers, target sticks or props (only if you are using these already)


Once you have purchased your ticket, please check your email inbox (and spam folders) for an email with further information about the event.

  • “I thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with one of my own Norwich Terriers taking part in the TV and Film workshop. We got to cover a wide range of exercises from various levels and each dog and handler was able to work at their own level and were given guidance to progress in a way that suited each dog best. We've come away from the workshop fully motivated with some new ideas and highly recommend Sally's training workshops to anyone looking for a fun and educational day with their dog! Thankyou all for a lovely day.”
