What would make Ewan MacGregor ask to adopt the dog he worked with on the set of Beginners? From Joey in War Horse to the wolves in Game of Thrones, what we see on screen is only the tip of the iceberg. These eye-popping, heart-warming stories reveal the trainers, actors, directors, and, of course, dogs, cats, horses, birds, etc. in their behind the scenes glory. Animal actors are shown to have diva tendencies and rags-to-riches back-stories. Directors and actors are shown to stretch professional boundaries to create emotional ties with their nonhuman coworkers. And from penguins, Shih Tzu, and horses to Jack Russell Terriers and Lynx cats, the animals on set are shown to be as lovable, personality-filled, and at times frustrating as the animals in our homes. A bonus following each story are secrets from world-class animal trainers for training pets. Also includes stories from Steven Spielberg, Julia Roberts, Hailee Steinfeld, and Angie Everhart about working with animal stars who stole their hearts.
