  • Dog
  • Video camera
  • Computer
  • Video-editing software
  • Computer microphone

Step 1 Take lots of footage Videotape your dog when they’re barking and chewing. You’ll need about 30 minutes of footage of them with their mouth moving.

Step 2 Load it onto a computer Load the footage onto a computer.

Step 3 Edit it Open up a video-editing program and edit the raw footage down to the best 3 minutes or so, using 20 to 30 second chunks.

Step 4 Work out a script Write a script that matches their mouth movements as closely as possible.

Step 5 Record the voice Record the voice into a computer microphone as you watch the edited video. If your video-editing program has a voice-over tool, you can add the voice directly to your movie. If not, open up a dedicated audio program and record the VO separately. Then import the audio file into your editing program and combine the audio and video.
