Dog Training and Handling Pays Off

January 16, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Foxy’s always been intelligent and food motivated so I easily trained her in basic obedience. She excelled at agility classes and the obstacle courses strengthened our bond. Keeping her attention, eye contact, and speaking on command all came in handy in a shot video including Foxy and another dog.  I’m so proud of this short where Foxy and I get to act alongside Foxy in this beautifully directed short film.

 

I've always secretly wanted to act! So I was delighted when asked to participate in my good friend Adrian's film from vision to reality. It was fascinating to watch him and Brad hyper focus, hustle and coordinate, flex their talents to make this story real. It was a wonderful lesson into the hours and days that go into creating a couple minutes of good footage.

 

Here she plays a boy dog (she had to grow a beard for the role). The challenge was directing her while I pretended Dodger was my dog. Although she would get jealous, I’m very proud of Foxy's obedience and devotion. We got her to sit and lay in certain scenes, run away from camera in another, and bark at the other actor. She’s such a good loving girl! I’m grateful that her personality was captured in the film for my memory.

 

Having Foxy recorded in a flattering video format is precious for me because I am unable to capture those moments and angles as flatteringly. This is the same thing my customers and friends tell me about my pet photography. It’s a nice feeling to look at beautiful footage and photos of your loved ones and pets.

 

I’m sure those of you who love Foxy will enjoy how the movie captures her spunk. It’s a film about romance, dogs, bad dates, and staying present in the moment! Hope you all enjoy this fun youtube video! "They can't take that away from me" story and vocals by Adrian Scott Jr.
