With over 25 years’ of animal training experience, our team of handlers are on-hand to ensure you achieve exactly what you’re looking for in order to meet your production objectives.

And because everyone at Animal Direction is an animal trainer, we understand the individual characteristics of each animal and breed. This means we know how to get the very best from each animal with regard to it performing certain actions or displaying a specific mannerism. 


As well as caring for and training animals, everyone at Animal Direction is a business professional with a background in marketing communications and project management. That’s why we take the time to understand your brief to ensure the photoshoot runs smoothly, the animals are happy and everything moves forward without disruption.

If required, we can also provide confirmation of animal welfare* for Clearcast approvals. Which also eliminates the need for a separate vet on set, as an Animal Direction representative will always attend a TV Production shoot to look after the animal and its owner.

*Animal Direction prides itself on the strong beliefs in animal welfare and responsible pet ownership. As such, we will always offer our advice and expertise to protect your, or your client's brand.


There are certain occasions when we won’t have access to a specific animal model and in situations like this we call upon our network of breeders, trainers and animal education companies to help us.

And if you’re struggling to find a photographer or a specific venue for your shoot, we can help here as well. In fact, when it comes to the world of animal photography, Animal Direction always goes the extra mile and furlong!
