Featured Animal Action

Dog A German shepherd lunges at Molly from behind a chain-link fence. For this scene, the dog was cued to run and jump up onto a platform as the trainer called him. He was then cued to lunge at the fence and bark. The platform was secured by the trainer and covered with palm fronds and grass so that the dog would not slip. Due to late notification or limited resources, American Humane did not monitor the bird action.
