Animal Trainers

Hosted by

We travel to the ranch of Birds & Animals Unlimited, an agency that has managed feathered and furry talent working in Hollywood for 40 years. Kim Masters talks with Mathilde de Cagney, the animal trainer specializing in dogs whose credits include TV shows like Frasier and movies like Marley & Me, Hugo and Beginners; and David Sousa, an animal trainer who's worked with the owls on the Harry Potter films and the reindeer in Fred Claus.
