Featured Animal Action

There is one short scene of a dog. He is in a lab standing on a table with a scientist standing next to him. The dog is wearing a device that translates his bark into human language. As the president of the company and his brother approaches, the dog barks and the translation is (Hello). He barks again and then lies down on the table. The device the dog was wearing was a dog harness weighing 2 1/2lbs. and secured with Velcro. To cue the dog to bark, the trainer was just off camera holding a piece of meat above the actor's head. He also used verbal commands. This action was repeated a second time. Then actual translation was dubbed in in post-production.
