Featured Animal Action

One of the ghost stories told is about a little girl named Amanda and her dog Odin, and the killer who breaks into her home. The dog is seen walking A to B from room to room with the actor, playing in the backyard, licking the actor's finger from under a bed, and crawling though a doggy door. After the man enters the house the dog is found under Amanda's bed dead. The trainer used verbal and hand commands to cue the dog with food as a reward. To get the dog to lick the actor's fingers, the trainer applied baby food to the fingers. For the shot of the dog lying dead under the bed, a fake dog was used with prop blood.
