The whole production process took three months. The first step was to understand if it is possible at all to make stop motion with real dogs. After a lot of dogs behaviors have been investigated it became clear that, hooray, it's real!

The second stage was to find the right phlegmatic dog that could be a main hero of the commercial. Three main parameters of animals behavior were chosen to identify the needed animal: the ability to lay on back for a long time, pretty looking and smiling skills. As a result, for the main role was chosen dog named Bolt - white golden retriever with absolutely fantastic destiny: a puppy found on the street, a skinny and downtrodden, was adopted by new owners, who loved him so much that he could become a luxury kindest dog and play a unique role in the world.
