Do you think your pet has what it takes to be an animal actor?
Training Unlimited Animal Training and Animal Actors, Inc. is always scouting for new talent.
It’s not easy to get your pet noticed by an agent. It’s even tougher if you don’t live in or near a big city where all the action is. And, movie directors don’t go door-to-door seeking the next Benji or Morris. They hire professional animal actor agents and trainers; people whom they know will bring well-prepared and healthy animals to the set.
Training Unlimited Animal Training and Animal Actors, Inc. provides animals for production work all over the East Coast and Mid-West. We work with Animal Planet, History Channel, Family Channel, The Learning Channel, Warner Bros. Films, Touchstone TV and Films, Miramax, many regional and international production companies, major car dealers and much, much more.
We’re constantly seeking animal talent!
Dogs, cats, horses, birds and others–well trained, healthy and loved by their human guardians.
Your pet could be chosen!
But how will we know about your pet unless you send us pictures and information?
In order for us to know about you and your pet, you’ll need to register your information with our agency. This is very easy. Merely print out the form below and mail (or email) it to us complete with your pets’ pics. Include your contact information.
Also check out our Events Page for a schedule of Studio Animal Workshops or Animal Actor Assessment Days that might be near you. The workshop will teach you all you need to know to prepare your pet for a production job. The assessment will help you discover whether or not your pet has what it takes to be an animal actor.
If you can’t find a workshop near you, you may wish to host one.
As a host you would receive 30% of the attendance fees (minimum of 50 attendees applies).
Should you be interested in learning more about how to work with your animal during a production, and there isn’t a workshop in your area any time soon, I’d suggest purchase of the Workshop Workbook. Only $15. Include this, plus the shipping fee of $6.95 with this form.

Do you agree to allow your pet to perform when called upon, regardless of your being present on the set? (Most times animals are too distracted by their human guardians to perform on the set. Therefore, professional trainers work the animals through the production):__________________
Do you agree to keep your pet in the best of health, including but not limited to appropriate weight, cleanliness and coat condition?___________________
By submitting this registration form and paying the $24.95 processing fee, I understand this does not guarantee that my animal will receive work.
If hired for a production job, I do not hold Training Unlimited Animal Training and Animal Actors, Inc. or their employees liable for anything associated with my animal or myself, including injury, theft, stress, illness or death. I further understand that if hired I must show up on time with a clean and well prepared animal and will listen explicitly to the trainer-in-charge, trusting that she/he has nothing but the best interests of my animal in mind while working on the set.
Don’t forget to include your pets’ pics!!
