Hollywood Barks! The Tails Behind Famous Dogs, Their Co-Stars, and Their Companions by Kathryn Segura

Though this book promises to teach the reader Hollywood training secrets to help their dog become a star, Hollywood Barks! (Happy Tails Books, 2009) reads more like an insider’s view of the fascinating backstage world of animal actors and their trainers. It’s filled with dozens of personal stories about the successes, failures, frustrations, and triumphs of rescuing, training, and working with the talented four-legged stars of movies, commercials, and live theatre. Interesting, engaging, and well-written, it offers a unique point of view on a different sort of bond that exists between a human and her dogs unlike those we usually read about, and that’s why this book is so fascinating.--Melissa
