Broadway Tails: Heartfelt Stories Of Rescued Dogs Who Became Showbiz Superstars
William Berloni and his company have spent the past thirty years training dogs and cats for Broadway productions, primarily using animals rescued from shelters. In Broadway Tails, Berloni talks about being the first to train actors to work with animals on stage, his love for mutts over purebreds, as well as the four-acre animal retirement compound where he lives. With photos throughout this delightful book, we learn details about how his dogs are trained, how they react to Broadway life, and his own personal rise to fame.
In Episode 116 of the Working Like Dogs radio show, Hollywood and Broadway animal trainer, advocate, and author, Bill Berloni (www.theatricalanimals.com) talks about his incredible 40-year career of training dogs for both the stage and silver screen! Bill shares his humble beginnings and the story of how he paid $7.00 for a rescue dog from the local animal shelter who would go on to become the famous Sandy in the long-running Broadway production of Annie. The animals he has rescued are the epitome of a great Hollywood drama — from wags to riches!
