The animals used in motion pictures and television are no ordinary house pets. Nor are they as intelligent as they seem in the finished product. They have been rigorously trained to perform individual tricks upon command, in the sometimes difficult environment of the movie or television set.

While at work, "Animal actors" are accompanied and handled by their own professional wranglers, often the same individuals who trained them in the first place. Therefore the two are inseparable in a directory listing.

When searching for an animal to play a role in a production, one might search for specific animals or one might choose a trainer first who will work with the production to find and train the right animal for the job.
