Animals on Q is a premiere New Zealand animal talent agency based in Waimauku, Auckland. We have been in the business of sourcing and training animals for film and print work since 1988, providing quality animal action set to the highest safety standards for the film industry. We pride ourselves on the hassle-free excellence of the animal action we can offer.
We have a stable of experienced ‘in-house’ animals of various species, and if you have any special requests, we can locate a suitable animal for you. We also offer the unique service of treatments for pets with problem behaviour.
Our private facilities are set in acres of lush, natural forestry, easily accessible from Auckland city, providing the ideal location for film sets and the housing of animals requiring treatment for problem behaviour.
We maintain the highest animal care and safety standards in the film industry and we only utilize positive training methods. Furthermore our knowledge of animal species is extensive.
For these reasons we are able to offer consistent quality performances from our animal actors in a safe and humane way.
As production-minded coordinators, we provide free budget and script breakdowns and work closely with your production team, providing you with professional animal actors within your budget in a safe and happy environment.
