Please let us know if you have any specific requirements. We will happily help you choose an animal that suits your project, and many of our animals have different skills/tricks & commands. If you don't see an animal that meets your needs, please contact us & we will be happy to find one for you. We have good sources of registered dog breeders across the UK as well as a good range of different breed standard dogs to choose from. Urban Paws Agency offers agents & producers trained animals suitable for any kind of role, in that the animals are human friendly, well trained, obedient, follow commands well & most importantly are open to learning.

What it Takes to Make it as a Pet Influencer on Social Media

Here in Britain, we love our pets! We love playing with them, cuddling them, taking them for walks - and sharing their antics, their glamour shots and their personalities on our social media feeds. Our Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, TikTok and Instagram pages are packed with adorable pictures of pets.

Our recent survey with 3,000 UK cat and dog owners shows that over a quarter of UK pet owners (27%) have set up social media pages dedicated to their pets, and of those 801 that set up those pages, a quarter did so in the hopes that their furry friends would become a pet influencer.

For anyone unfamiliar with the term, a ‘pet influencer’ is someone’s pet that has an account with a large following on a social media platform. With video and photos of the pet, and sometimes the owner, pet influencers bring in tens of thousands of likes with every post, and are some of the most popular accounts on social media.

For an idea of just how popular pet influencers are with people in the UK, we’ve whipped up this table of 29 of the top UK pets on Instagram with some of the largest social followings along with the interaction they get from their followers.

Pet project proves a winner for former reality TV star

Former model and reality TV star Layla Flaherty has switched the celebrity spotlight to her four-legged clients, running one of the UK’s most in-demand animal agencies.

Five years ago, fed up of the fake party lifestyle, the former Desperate Scousewives star decided to combine the three things she knew and loved best – modelling, TV and animals – to launch her own business.

Today, her Urban Paws UK venture operates from Manchester and London, as well as a Liverpool studio, and is the go-to animal agency for luxury brands and leading high street names wanting to add anything from cats to camels to their campaigns.
