Corgi Marcel for ILIFE Robot Vacuum Cleaner: An overnight suck-cess.

In today’s world, modern households are run like well oiled machines. Overlapping schedules and hefty workloads means it’s no surprise that days are neatly timetabled from crack of dawn to downtime in the evening. Keeping any household in pristine condition is difficult; so an automated vac which can mop up any mucky pup spills or shed dog hair is a must.

ILife V5 Pro

PetLondon Models was tasked to find a star for ILife Vacuum cleaners. The brief was broad but with three conditions: firstly advanced commands were necessary, secondly good with children, and thirdly not to be scared of hoovers or robots. After a lot of considerations between a few different individuals; Marcel the Corgi was finalised. One of our few international jet-setting models, he spends his time between London and Paris… Lucky him!

Marcel is a very rate ‘Fluffy’ Pembroke Welsh Corgi with the longer silky coat. As demonstrated he has an excellent attention span and skill; performing commands such as sit, down, roll over, spin and high five (as seen in the video) with ease. He’s an experienced model used with working in different environments and working with a range of talent.

Bonding with the crew behind the scenes

Anything that allows for more time spent with your dog was certainly a brand we could get behind! The brand new V range has a programmable daily cleaning plan and remote controlled max-power mode rids homesteads of hard-to-clean dirt and stains, such as shed dog hair and dust which can disrupt normal day-to-day living.

Marcel the consummate professional integrated right into his new family straight away. Always up for play-time he took to running around in the garden in his stride. Marcel loved the attention of the camera especially during his close up shot in bed. His superb obedience allowed for some amazing shots, including the super expressive welcome home look.

Congratulations Marcel you were a star!

It was to be a very early start for the boys! They had to be ready at Buckingham Palace in the wee hours of the morning at 5am in order to avoid the hectic London traffic and tourists.

They arrived to find the very special Vauxhall car waiting for them. This unique vehicle had been fitted out to make sure Queen Elizabeth II and her Corgis would have everything they could ever need to be looked after in the royal manner.

Her Majesty has been a Vauxhall owner for more than 50 years, with all her cars finished in Balmoral Green – a bespoke deep green colour not normally supplied by Vauxhall. ‘MYT 1’, Her Majesty the Queen’s 1961 PA Cresta Friary Estate was a personal favourite, serving the royal fleet and containing a number of interesting features like fishing rod holders built into the roof and a gun rack.
