- To make the St. Bernards attack the car, animal trainers put the dog's favorite toys inside the car so the dogs would try to get them.
Five St. Bernards were used, one mechanical head, and a guy in a dog costume.
"Cujo" is an ancient Indian word meaning "unstoppable force."
Stephen King contributed substantially to the script but eventually declined Writer's Guild credit
Stunt double Jeannie Coulter was in the car and had the one of the toys used by the dogs' trainers as a "lure". The window was partially down, the dog jumped up and put his paws on the window, forcing it down and he reached in for his toy. Jeannie's reaction was to lower the toy and the dog bit her nose. She was treated at the hospital and released. There was also the rumor at the time that she was bitten by a rabid dog which was entirely incorrect.
