For a big movie like “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” you need a big pack of dogs. The pups of Circus Chickendog — from left, Skeeter, Mouse, Squirrel Girl, Moose, Jingles and Coyote — are all rescue dogs, trained by Darren Peterson to entertain fans of all ages. Even these performing pros had to channel a bit of the Force to all pose at the same time in our classic “Star Wars” costumes, but luckily Peterson is more Yoda than Darth Vader. His pooches enjoy putting on a show — even poor Moose, who gamely modeled our “Death Star” cone.
Watch a behind-the-scenes video of our famous furballs below:
Is your dog a star?
Or at least willing to sit for a photo while wearing a costume? Whether you’re inspired by our movie package or in prep for Halloween, share your dog photos on social media with the hashtag #atxmoviedogs, or email to email@example.com. We’ll use them in an online photo gallery, and a few might be published in print, too.
