Top 5 Best Dog Movies

July 14, 2021

What’s better than cuddling your dog in your home or walking them in the park? It’s seeing their furry cuteness on the big screen. These movies that depict dogs’ amazing qualities and their connection with humans are sure to make you laugh, cry and tug all your heartstrings. Here are the top five best movies that will guarantee your viewing pleasure. 

  1. Old Yeller (1957)

Although released in 1957, this movie is sure to tug at your heart with the powerful depiction of a loving relationship between a young boy and a stray dog. The movie displays the fierce loyalty of a dog and would have you kissing your little pooch at the end.

  1. 101 Dalmatians (1961)

Again, Disney doesn’t disappoint with this memorable story in 101 Dalmatians. The movie centers on Roger Radcliffe—A computer game genius and his dog, Pongo. 

Pongo, tired of the single life, goes to find a mate for both of them. Finding a match in the Dalmatian, Perdita and her owner, Anita, he stages an encounter. Soon, Pongo and Perdita have a litter of babies—101 puppies. This catches the attention of Cruella De Ville, who wants to use their fur to make a coat for herself.

But hey, this is Disney; so her plan doesn’t fall through. 

If you are a dog lover, this movie is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat, laughing out loud.

  1. Lady And The Tramp (1955)

This iconic animated romance by Disney defined the childhood of many; and for good reason. It tells the story of two individuals—the Lady, (a classic spaniel breed) and the Tramp (a street dog)—from opposite ends of the world. 

The lady adores her family but starts feeling left out when her dog-parents decide to have a child. Soon after, she meets the Tramp who introduces her to the ways of the street. It’s a fun movie that takes us through their many perils, funny moments, and of course, Hollywood’s famous date scene—the spaghetti and meatballs trick. 

  1. Marley And Me (2008)

This movie will make you fall in love with your fur baby even more deeply. It will also make you appreciate how much your dog makes life bearable when it throws you lemons. 

The story tells the tale of a couple who get a dog and try to be mature dog parents. Marley, in his free-spirited manner and mischievous antics, teaches them significant life lessons along the way. 

The movie is filled with hilarious scenes and tear-provoking moments, so you do need to get ready to wipe some.  

  1. The Secret Lives Of Pets (2016)

If you’ve ever wondered what your dog does when you leave the house, this movie had the same thought and ran with it. 

It’s a movie that talks about a terrier, Max, who is living the best life with his owner. When she adopts another dog, Duke, Max wants him far away from his perfect life. The animation follows their misadventures and plans to beat a common opponent. The movie is hilarious, touching, and can be viewed by anyone.
