The Biggest Little Dog

Beverly Hills Chihuahua, the "biggest" dog film of 2008, has hit shelves on DVD. Not only staring Chihuahuas but a German Shepherd Dog, Doberman Pincher, Pug, Toy Poodle, Yorkshire Terrier, mixed breeds, and dozens more, including a brief shot of a Coyote, Beverly Hills Chihuahua is a movie-dog-lover's dream; and a movie dog trainer's toughest challenge.

Although a considerable amount of the canine footage is CGI, including "Delgado," leaping onto a moving train and fighting cougars, the work from the real dogs
is nothing short of astounding. More than 200 dogs and 60 trainers were involved in the making of the film. And BHC trainers had to do more than just prep those 200 dogs: While filming on location in Mexico, torrential rain caused flooding and trainers carried the dogs to safety through the knee-high floodwater. All the dogs (and people) were okay.
