For some pet owners, “Roll Over!” is just not enough. They want to keep teaching their pets new tricks. And for some of those pet owners, showing tricks at family get-togethers is just not enough… Their dogs could be stars!

Hollywood Paws is an animal training facility, as well as, an animal talent agency located in Los Angeles, California. They have a team of trainers who prepare the dogs for every variety act they will need to do through their training program. From grabbing onto the pants of their owner to jumping over a series of obstacles, Hollywood Paws has got the stuff to take your dog to the big screen. And when the dog has completed his/her training, the agency helps them find jobs.

K9 in the City met with Joel Norton, the director of education, and discussed the techniques they use for training. Watch the video to see the dedicated pet owners demonstrate some of their best tricks!

its good that the dogs get to go home to families instead of living part of their lives alone in a trailer or studio, or switching from person to person.

This reminds me of a guy who finds some of the animals for hollywood movies and for hollywood tv shows. All of the animals he finds he gets them from rescue centers and from humane society's usaully he chooses animals that are very unlikely to find a new home or ones that have only one more day to find a new home. I think this guy has the right idea and after the animal is no longer needed on stage he either keeps them, finds them a home or they go home with some one from the studio. They never get taken back or put down this guy is really dedicated to his job and will work hard to train the animals even ones that seem impossible so that they never end up homeless again.
