Throughout the film, the main character has a pet dog, who is seen performing such mild action as sitting/standing/lying, being held or petted, and walking/running on or off leash. 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 actor walks a dog in a supermarket, on action, the actor entered the shop (cell phone in right hand) and walked to the back of the shop with the dog. Prior to the scene the actor and the dog were acquainted.

In the scene where the actors walk through the house with the dog following, prior to filming, the trainer placed treats throughout the house. On action, the dog followed the actors and stopped to eat the treats.

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