eddieTalented dogs and cats are often used in TV shows and movies. Think of the Saint Bernard who played Beethoven or Eddie, the Jack Russell from the TV show Frazier. Human actors have a union to help to protect their interest but what about canine and feline actors.  The group charged with monitoring the use of animals in show business is the American Humanes of Film and Television. This organization sends trained representatives to movie sets to make sure that the animal actors are being handled according to strict guidelines. If the guidelines are met, the final TV program or film will include a special end credit stating the no animals were harmed. Look for it next time you watch your favorite program. Make sure you reward you talented dog with lots of love and treats, you never know, he may be the star of a new TV series.
