ALERT the pa­parazzi – there are celebri­ties roam­ing around Western Sydney.

Granted, they are not on the same level as Justin Bieber, but the dogs at the Guard Dog Train­ing Cen­tre cer­tainly have a claim to fame af­ter star­ring in a new hor­ror movie,

The movie tells the story of a hard­ened farmer and his fam­ily who are forced to fight for their sur­vival when their ranch comes un­der at­tack from wild dogs.

The fierce-look­ing ca­nines in the movie are ac­tu­ally harm­less ger­man shep­herds which were dyed black to look the part.

But in or­der for them to really nail their roles, they were painstak­ingly trained for count­less hours at the Cen­tre in Berk­shire Park.

Cen­tre gen­eral man­ager Ali Os­mani said the dogs were taught ev­ery­thing from chas­ing their hu­man vic­tims through mazes to how to creep and stalk.

Mr Os­mani was not sure if the dogs re­alised they were now celebri­ties.

“But they are definitely feel­ing good about them­selves – they are movie stars af­ter all,” he said.

will be shown on Chan­nel 10 early next year.
