Top Dog Talent Agency does not pay their bills. Tracy Oliver hired me to do a photo shoot in November with Heidi Klum. I was to be paid $350 whether or not they used my German Shepherds in the shoot, I was to be the backup for her own personal dogs. I was to be paid for just showing up. I had 200 miles round trip in my large diesel truck and over 8 hours of my day taken up including my drive time. I have numerous emails, texts and voice-mails with no response from them. I have emails saying how much I was to be paid and where to go for the shoot and I have a witness that met me at the shoot whose contact info I also have. Do not use this company, there are better animal talent agencies out there that actually pay their help.

Payment Received!!

AUTHOR: leoetta - (United States of America)

Payment has been received by me from Top Dog Talent Agency. Check was received in the mail today and they added $100 to the original amount promised. Thank you to Tracy Oliver for getting this sent out to me. I'm only sorry that I didn't realize that does not remove the posted reports, in the heat of anger and frustration it is easy to miss the small print.

Here is her message last night to me stating she couldn't contact me

AUTHOR: leoetta - (United States of America)

12 hours ago Tracyoliver Topdogtalentagency Barbara, I absolutely apologize! That is not how we work as a company. I had someone hack my email passwords and phone. I have no contact numbers/email addresses absolutely nothing. Our accounting should have sent you a check! Even though we personally got paid from that shoot a week ago, and we require to be paid upon completion of the job. You can say whatever you want but you'd be one out of my 4,657 clients to ever say anything negative about the way we operate. Again Im very sorry that things happened the way they did, I wasn't prepared to lose all my emails,phone numbers. My information about that situation is still under investigation. Can you please provide me with your address or email my new email
__________________ and I will send you your check. How much did you spend on gas? I will personally reimburse you. We absolutely appreciate you being on set, even though you guys were not used. I cannot apologize enough that all this happened, and am very embarrassed. I hope you understand, I've been beyond stressed about losing almost everything I had on my computer. I hope you understand Barbara. Thank you for bringing this to my attention!!12 hours agoBarbara Butler DiBernardoTracy, that is the same email I have had for you the whole time, you can't tell me you did not receive my email. Here is my address _____________________________I'll remove all negative comments when I receive my check.You can also paypal it to me at ______________ that might be better unless you want that hanging around online for a week or so.My fuel would have been about $75 in that truck for that mileage as we sat in traffic for over three hours going home.

#4 REBUTTAL Owner of company

False complaint!

AUTHOR: Tao - (United States of America)

This is a false complaint and is defacing my company! This lady is completely impatient, as we were just paid as a company, three days ago. She was informed that even though her dog was being used as a back-up, she'd be paid, along with gas reimbursements as long as she mailed the hard copies of the receipts which she failed to produce. We are not in the accounts receivable business and she was clearly informed via telephone and email that she'd be paid as soon as we received our paycheck from the client. Do I need to contact my lawyer about this negative/false report of de-facing my company???
