.When an animal is hired, it is paid a daily wage (approximately USD$50 to USD$350). Unlike human actors, animals do not receive residuals. They are considered freelancers and are paid only a one-time fee. If there are specific behaviors that the animal needs to learn, it may be paid half-wage for each training day.
