Marley and Me or Do Dog Actors Love their Job?
Have you ever wondered as to whether acting dogs love their job? I grew up watching Lassie and the last movie I saw with a dog in the lead role was Marley and Me with Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson.
According to The Dog Whisperer dogs need a pack leader, meaning someone who gives them something to do. Depending on the breed some dogs are happy with the job of just following you on a daily walk, others especially those known as "working dogs" such as the boxer need more than that..., or they could become frustrated, start chewing up furnture, etc...., just like Marley in the movie!
So yes, I think dog actors love their job! Marley of course is the work of several dog actors.
