WILLISTON, Vt. -
When it comes to action, this dog is on it."Jack is pretty amazing, I think," owner Nina Daniel said. "See? He knows we are talking about him!"Jack is a 5-year-old boxer who knows a thing or two about performing."Obedience, rally agility, we sort of settled into agility as a really fun thing we love to do together," Nina said.While Jack's favorite thing is agility training, he is also trained to stand still for long periods of time, even holding objects in his mouth, which Nina says is critical for his work in commercials. That's right, you can add acting to his resume, as well. Jack is in a New York lottery commercial. Last year, he starred in a high-end shoe commercial that aired during the Super Bowl. Jack's latest gig is a commercial with Patriots QB Tom Brady. Lucky pup. Lucky owner who got to meet Brady."I did. We worked very closely and he is very nice, flexible, easy to work with professional," Nina said.While being in commercials is fun and somewhat lucrative, Nina says the money Jack has earned pays for his vet bills and covers some of his training, more than four years of hard work."He is a good dog," said Cassy Lamothe of Show Me the Biscuit.Cassy is Nina and Jack's trainer."He was very exuberant as a puppy and she worked a lot to get him to be able to maintain control in all situations which has really helped her commercial work and her agility work and everything overall," Cassy said.It's training that has paid off for this team. And don't be surprised to see Jack in more commercials. We are told his agent is working on that.
