LOS ANGELES (AP) — Brandon McMillan has trained as many as 10,000 dogs for television, movies, commercials, videos and people. Then he started saving dogs from animal shelters, training them and finding homes for them. So he is a natural for Litton Entertainment’s latest show, “Lucky Dog.”
As part of the CBS show, he’ll train and place 22 dogs with families over 22 weeks.
He will start each week spending several hours at a shelter, evaluating dogs. That may be the hardest part, especially given that at least 9,000 dogs and cats are euthanized each day because homes can’t be found for them.
McMillan will choose the family by evaluating emails he receives at his Southern California ranch and checking out the house and yard where the new dog will live.
