Featured Animal Action

As a man enters a body shop yard and walks past a car, a dog comes around the side of the car and barks at him. Two pit bulls were on call for this part. A trainer attached one end of a chain to the dog's collar and the other end to a stake secured into the ground. Another trainer stood behind the camera and verbally cued the dog to walk toward the actor and to bark and growl. The actor and crew were introduced to the dogs before filming began and the grounds were checked to make sure they were safe for the dogs. Only necessary crew members were allowed on set.
