Training, Directing Dogs For Film & TV

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (05-06-2017) #523: Another wonderful book from Bruce Cameron from the dog’s perspective, this time a pit bull puppy named Bella, in A DOG’S WAY HOME, a novel that sheds a light on “breed specific legislation” against pit bulls and other dogs, as well as the welfare of feral cat communities; Tracie gets to the truth of a faked controversy, stirred up by animal rights activists in social media, about the training of a dog for the film based on Cameron’s previous book, A DOG’S PURPOSE, in a conversation with a highly respected veteran trainer of animals for films and television; Tracie speaks with her old friend Brian Levant about directing films starring dogs (Beethoven, Snow Dogs, Max) and the opening of his newest film, Max 2: White House Hero.
