LOS ANGELES (AP) For years, Bill Berloni has taught his dogs to play make believe. Now, he's making it real.
The trainer teaches rescue dogs to beg, bark and bow or sit, stand and shake for movies, TV and the Broadway stage. Once the animal actors retire, he brings them home to join his 30 dogs, one cat, farm animals and singing macaw that swears like a sailor.
He is bringing the motley crew to reality TV in "From Wags to Riches with Bill Berloni," the Discovery Family Channel's first original series, debuting next week.
