The time I worked with Musik was the first time I worked with a trained dog. I had no idea what to expect. She was sweet and playful, and Musik’s complete adorableness was matched by her professionalism on set. Her ability to stay focused with her trainer and complete tasks allowed me to focus on what I needed to do and shots to go smoothly. She definitely made smiling for the camera easy to do! I hope I get to work with Musik again in the future!Karen Hernandez, Actor

I couldn't have asked for a better co-star! Such a blast to work with and definitely made my job as an actor that much easier and more enjoyable! Musik is one talented pup who I hope I get to work with again and again!" Dania Denise, Actor

When filming content for DOGTV (television for dogs), it’s important for us to work with the most professional and experienced dog trainers in order to get the best content for dogs to enjoy. Beverly’s dogs Kompis & Musik are so talented and easy to work with because Beverly can communicate exactly what they needed to do, and they always did it! I don’t know how she does it, but it works beautifully! I’m looking forward to working with Beverly and her pup on more DOGTV programs.” Ron Levi, Founder/Chief Content Officer, DOGTV
