“[Bill] can do anything you ask, has enormous love for and control of the animals, is kind to them and to humans. He is the best. The one and only.”—Mike Nichols
“Bill Berloni is a master of his profession. His experience and patience are welcome in any rehearsal room.” —Susan Stroman
Both animal and theater lovers are likely to be amused and moved by Berloni’s memoir of his work over three decades as the pre-eminent animal trainer for Broadway shows. Berloni put his love of animals to professional use when he was asked to find the right dog to play Sandy in the original production of Annie. Berloni does an excellent job of explaining how he did his job, even with animals as seemingly intractable as cats, pigs, and rats. His repeated rescues of abused animals are touching, and there’s no shortage of funny stories. —Publisher's Weekly

While it does not unlock any special training secrets, it's not made to. The hilarious stories of dropping bologna to get dogs to stop on stage, the heartfelt stories of all the dogs he adopted who usually went to new, great homes after performances, and the way he talks about the stars he worked with are truly sincere feeling. It's so interesting how for the most of the shows, the dogs training was barely pulled together, but the audience would never know. Getting a dog to bark by having someone offstage in a horse costume, is one example! But they always came through, and the show went on.
I only wish it were longer! Anyone who is interested in dogs, dog rescue, or show business, I encourage to read this book.
Endears the reader to the animals by the way he trains and relates to them.
Fascinating to learn how he figured out to train the animals and get them to do amazing things.
Also, rescued animals and found great homes for them after they finished their roles.
