For a Dog’s Way Home, Bonnie acted as the Canadian Coordinator and provided Bella as a young puppy, Bella’s mom and littermates puppies, momma cat and a variety of other cats and  kittens for the early scenes of Bella being raised under the abandoned house. Cats were trained to do A to B’s and retrieve and carry stuffies from A to B. Later in movie Bonnie provided and trained the coyotes that threaten adult Bella on her journey home.

What Producer, Gavin Ponlone had to say about Bonnie:

 To anyone thinking of working with Bonnie Judd:

I have done two films with Bonnie and she is, in short, the best animal trainer in the world. Truly, she is a magician and has been able to render behaviours in her animal actors that I did not think were possible. 

Bonnie is also a person of the highest integrity. I know that I can always trust her to deliver on what she promised and that she’ll neer puer her animals or anyone on the production in an uncomfrotable or dangerous position. 

Bonnie Judd is the first and only choice for if I’m making a movie or television that the requires live animals on set.
