Dogs Story: I rose above my humble origins at the Los Angeles city shelter to become a working animal actor in movies, TV, and print media. Now I’m trying to change the world for working dogs and I’m one of the pups behind a new outdoors line of leashes and products called ZUMI.
Six years ago my mum rescued me from a city shelter in Los Angeles where I sat scared and shaking, now I’m an advocate for other shelter dogs and all the amazing things they can do. Join my mum and I on our adventure in dog training as we go new places, teach new things, and make friends. We hope we inspire you to get out and do more with your dog too. I love to going out of my paddleboard with my mum, we take road trips together and whenever there’s a body of water I’m ready to hop on board together. When I’m not riding waves or my skateboard I’m usually on a set striking poses.
In my shelter days, I probably wasn't so assertive. For example, I don’t like skateboards, unless I’m riding them, and I love to see dolphins while on my paddle board. I didn't like any of the outdoor leashes my mum bought for me, so we made our own and launched our own line of leashes, called ZUMI, for pups that seek adventure like me. I'm always working on new skills and tricks with my mum or helping her teach other humans how to bond with their dogs through training. If a little scared pup from a city shelter can do all this, imagine what your dog can do with some positive training. Grab a leash, and your dog, and we’ll see you out there…
Awards and/or Metals for other Sports: I’ve been lucky enough to appear in ads for such companies and magazines as Harpers Bazaar, Radio Flyer, iFetch, Whistle, and so many more!
