Featured Animal Action

In the scene where the DEA agent walks around with the dog on the leash, the dog arrived at the location driven in a van by the trainer. On arrival the trainer walked the dog around to get familiar with the area where he would be working. The trainer met the actor that would be walking and instructed him on the proper handling of the dog.

When ready to film the trainer handed the dog to the the actor and helped to position them at their start point. On action the actors moved about the "crime scene". On cut, the trainer came out and rewarded the dog with praise and treats. This was repeated for each take.
