DogStars has been a part of the movie and television industry since 1995. Not only do we recognize talent when we see it, we also actively train animals to be stars. Our Star I and Star II programs will put your pet on the path to Hollywood. To be ready for auditions, just like acting for humans, training is a must.

We also introduce clicker training as part of the positive reward system behind our training methods, as a clean and quick way to have your animal perform on set.

DogStars provides the necessary animal acting training to achieve your dreams, we also place all our graduates into our DogStars Talent Agency. After all=we want them working for us!

Star II

Star Level 2 builds and expands on the work done in Star Level 1, introducing new and more complex behaviours, including:

  • Hitting consecutive designated marks
  • Work aways: teaching your dog to listen to commands while you or the trainer are out of sight; having your dog move away from the trainer, while still able to perform the called for behaviour
  • Bark on command / Quiet on request
  • Eyeline and attention work with increased distraction
  • Target training
  • Back up
  • And much, much more…

Successful completion of Star I is a prerequisite for Star II registration.
