Lights, Camera and…Action!

Behind the scenes

This past December, our Northwest Training Center was full of lights, camera and action as Canine Companions for Independence’s promotional partner, Mattress Discounters, filmed a series of four commercials for their Good Deed Dog charity efforts.  Staff, graduates and their dogs were prepped in wardrobe and makeup for the cameras.

A comprehensive film crew spent two days interviewing our graduate teams and filming Canine Companions’ fantastic dogs doing the work they do best.  Our Schulz Campus served as a great set, and our graduate teams and dogs in professional training were the talk of the town among the film crew.  Large cameras and boom microphones can seem daunting, but the dogs loved the limelight.

Great casting!

These Good Deed Dog advertisements will be airing throughout the west coast starting in January and continuing through 2014 on television and radio. 100% of funds raised during this campaign will be donated to Canine Companions. Keep an eye out for some stellar canine superstars!
