Featured Animal Action

Throughout the film, the main character and her family has a pet dog, who is seen performing such mild action as sitting/standing/lying, being held or petted, and walking. For all of these scenes, trainers used hand signals and verbal commands to cue the mild action, which the trained dog was accustomed to performing. The barking/growling was also a trained behavior.

In the scene where the man’s car pulls up and a woman approaches the car with a dog on a leash and the dog barks, the trainer was off camera and cued the dog to bark and lie down.

Due to limited resources, American Humane Association did not monitor some of the dog action.
