Hollywood Barks! The Tails Behind Famous Dogs, Their Co-Stars, and Their Human Companions by Kathryn Segura, Kyla Duffy, and Lowrey Mumford
THIS WOULD MAKE A PERFECT GIFT FOR THAT DOG LOVER IN YOUR LIFE. Order it HERE.
ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT
First of all, this book is a wonderful format as a training guide as well as the inside scoop on how trainers get dogs to do all those amazing things that you see on film. The guide is full of simple things that actually work! I tried several of these with my dachshund and I actually got her to do quite a few with the methods in this book. She can now belly crawl, but then again for a low to the ground dog, that is not so hard. I don’t know if she is ready for her close up yet, but I am going to keep trying.
Hollywood Barks! gives readers a unique opportunity to peek behind the camera into the real life of Hollywood dogs. This humorous account tells of revered studio wrangler Kathryn Seguras experience training dogs for television, print, and movies, such as Indecent Proposal and Theres Something About Mary. From a brief history of dogs in Hollywood to the dos and donts of setiquette, readers are taken on a journey so vivid you will feel as if you were working on the set yourself. Each chapter is accompanied by a lesson for a trick or behavior you can try with your dogs.
