If you have ever seen a movie that the main character is an animal, the animal's mouth moves as if the animal were a human. Does anybody know how to do that kind of effect?

I have seen it done where you put peanut butter on the animals mouth and the animal reacts by trying to get it off, this gets the tongue and mouth move. Then you just record a VO for the animal's character. There might be other ways but that is what I've seen.

By the way make sure your pet is not allergic to peanut butter, or just use your friend's pet.
