Movies + dogs: best plan ever. If you are a doggo and movie lover, then you are also a fan of dog movies, without a doubt. What’s better than having your two passions combined? Probably nothing.
Since we are also passionate dogs (needless to say) and movie lovers, we decided to create the ultimate list of the best dog movies to watch with your pooch, so you can also enjoy on a Sunday afternoon.
The only bad thing about dog movies is, of course, the feeling of total despair and how bad your eyes hurt after crying for two hours straight. We’ve all been there.
Obviously, we added some movies to the list that make you feel like that, but we also added some that have a happy ending, don’t worry.
Hachi: A Dog’s Tale
This is the saddest dog movie that has ever existed, and I won’t let anyone fight me on this one. For those of you who haven’t had the chance to watch this film yet, it tells the story of a college professor whose path crosses with the one of the most beautiful Akita puppy. And then, their journey begins.
Of course we won’t spoil it for you, but keep some handkerchiefs nearby because you are doomed to crying your eyes out with this one.
While watching this movie bear in mind that it is based on a real story, so you’ll sob a little more.
Marley & Me
Jennifer Aniston and a gorgeous Labrador, what else could you possibly ask for in a movie? A married couple expands their family when they adopt Marley, what they didn’t know was that that decision would change their lives forever.
If you have a dog that’s not the most well-behaved at home, then you are going to relate with this film 100%.
And yes, keep tissues nearby because you are definitely going to cry with this one.
A Dog’s Journey
If you have had more than one dog during your whole life, then this movie is the one for you. It illustrates the different lives a dog’s soul goes through in a wonderful way.
Oh, and if you have children, make sure to watch it with them, you won’t regret it.
The Art of Racing in the Rain
With outstanding protagonists, Milo Ventimiglia and Amanda Seyfried, and the most beautiful Golden Retriever, this family film tells the adventures of Enzo and his owner, a formula one racer.
You’ll fall in love with this pup that believes he’s not a dog but another human member of the family.
Rescued by Ruby
Let’s start with the movies that will maybe make you sub a little, but have a happy ending that will leave you feeling fulfilled and content.
Based on a true story, this film goes through the journey of a family man that has always dreamt of being part of the K9 unit, but life just kept getting in the way. Until one day, he meets a dog that seems to be facing the same kind of problems he does.
United by fate, coincidence, or however you want to call it, Dan and Ruby embark on an amazing journey together.
Lady and the Tramp
A classic. Disney has recently released the live action of this amazing movie that we have all seen during our childhood. We all know how it ends, but watching this version is an absolute must.
In this film, you will find the comfort you felt when you were just a kid, while being amazed by the amazing done by Disney and, of course, shedding a tear or two.
The Secret Life of Pets
Since we are talking about cartoons, we just have to highlight this outstanding movie that came out not so long ago.
The Secret Life of Pets shares the story of how an only child-pet, Max, feels when his owner expands the family and adopts another pup. Despite his feelings for Duke, the new doggo, Max sees that he has no other option but to team up with him to embark on an extremely important mission.
The best thing about this film is the hilarious way it presents the life of our pets when we are not around. Watch it with your family and you’ll definitely have a great time!
Can dogs eat popcorn?
What's a movie night without popcorn, right? But can you share this delicious treat with your pup? Actually, we have written an article about it that you can read by clicking here.
But the short answer is that no, dogs can't eat the salty, sweet or savory popcorn you prepare for yourself. What they can eat instead is plain popcorn without any other type of ingredients, mixed with their daily dose of Mokai vitamins so it's more appealing for them.
