It’s a Laugh Productions is now in production on the second season of the hit comedy series “Dog with a Blog” and the Disney casting director for the show is auditioning talent for guest starring, recurring, and day player roles. Extras are being hired throughout the season. The multi-camera sitcom premiered on Disney Channel on October 12, 2012 and was renewed for a second season on February 4, 2013. In a highly admirable corporate decision, Disney Channel has been airing Public Service Announcements in conjunction with “Dog with a Blog” educating kids on responsible pet adoption and encouraging kindness to animals.
Casting for the original role of Stan the Dog was quite special. The senior vice president of Disney Channel stated, “With our track record of discovering young talent who are ‘triple threats,’ we launched a nationwide search – and our reward is that we found a dog who could talk, blog and do his own stunts. Working with kids and animals has never been more fun!” What Disney found was Kuma, a 4-year-old Husky/Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix rescued from a shelter and trained by Guin Dill and Steve Solomon of Good Dog Animals in Green Valley, CA. Good Dog Animals has been training and providing dogs and other animals to the film and television industry for over 40 years. In addition to Kuma, a second dog named Mick has been cast to replace Kuma in the role as an understudy.
