I just had a conversation with my agility instructor. She gave my name and number to Joel Silverman because he is looking for a yellow lab to do some jumps over a camera? I haven't the foggiest idea what they want it for but from what I have heard he has a show on Animal Planet on Sunday Morning.. I think it is called Good Dog U???
I don't know if they will use Amber after seeing her or if she will be ok enough with people to do what they want but it might be interesting to try. Does anyone have any tips or thoughts?

Just tell her to smile for the camera!! ;D
How fun, Amber will do great!

No thoughts here, but wanted to say that it sounds like fun! Just enjoy the experience!
WOW Joel Silverman from Animal Planet's Good Dog U was at my house!!!!! He just had me bring Amber out on the front lawn and he had me stand her for some side pics and sit her for some face close-ups. Then he told me what was required for the shoot... Amber would have to jump over a jump with a camera shooting from underneath...OK no problem there. Amber would have to play with one toy and then switch focus to another toy...No problem ...And Amber would have to Interact with a actor ....Hmmm I don't think this would be a problem unless.....the person is scared of dogs.
I don't know if Amber will get picked but He said that if picked I would have to go to the shoot one of the two days either Monday or Tuesday of next week. I will have to take off a doy of work...but they will pay me about $400 for the day!!!
One other interesting thing was that he asked if I knew AAA labs, which is where I got Amber from. He got a lab from there to train as a drug dog. Small world..

I think it sounds like a lot of fun and I'd be all over it!
So they want to film her from below, jumping over the camera? That's interesting. I'd try to find out exactly what she's jumping over and train specifically for that for a few days, rather than springing it on her. Good luck!

Yep, practice jumping with a large object under the jump - and be prepared to a) sit around for most of the day
b) do take after take after take after take....

Well ............ we always knew Amber was a star!!!!
