Norwich, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 14, 2009 -- It has just been announced that the iconic model's Labradoodle (Labrador Retriever and Poodle cross) is the new face of canine fashion and accessory line Dogside.com. Five-year-old Bella will reportedly be receiving a substantial five-figure sum for appearing in a national advertising campaign.
Dogside.com is just one of many companies that provide accessories for pets, with products including scarves, coats and light-up leads. There is an ever-growing market for pet clothing and accessories, with more people than ever splashing out on a little luxury for the special pet in their life. There is even a Pet Fashion Week in New York!
However, you don't have to be a star for your dog, or any pet for that matter, to become a model. People often forget that the animals that appear in adverts, catalogues and on TV you are just ordinary pets, with real owners just like you. Many modelling agencies, including Models Direct, will represent pets as well as people.
Pet modelling provides a great way to experience the industry. If you are considering becoming a commercial model, watching your pet on an assignment means you can learn more about how filming and photoshoots are directed, possibly giving you the confidence to try it yourself!
