Snow sucks and when it’s cold outside, it’s only right that you stay in and binge watch TV while eating Seamless in bed.
To aid you in this quest, we’ve curated a list of 16 dog movies (and 1 pup-centric show) that range from animations to comedies to out-and-out tearjerkers. We’ve even linked to every movie/show, so all you need to do is sit back, take your pick and watch away!
A series about dogs that work?! Sign us up! The show follows dogs in various fields, from pups lighting up the Hollywood screen to those working doges. With two long seasons up on Netflix, we bet you won’t get up from your snuggly beds anytime soon.
A classic that just never stops being awesome. It probably made you actually want 101 dogs.
While you may need to keep the tissues handy this one is a must-watch! And as a bonus, it features Richard Gere (hubba hubba).
4. Red Dog
Josh Lucas of Sweet Home Alabama stars in this movie set in Australia. Stunning cinematography coupled with a wonderfully heartwarming story makes this one a must-watch!
To quote a Netflix reviewer, “This is the greatest movie that I have ever seen. I mean, a dog that plays matchmaker for humans? Incredible.”
6. The Adventures of Milo and Otis
Filmed documentary style by the puptastic Masanori Hata, the story has friendship, love, drama–everything you’d want in a cat-dog bromance. It also stars Dudley Moore from The Princess Bride.
This movie may be a tad cheesy but it’s about a small lil’ doxie making it in the big leagues. What’s not to love?!
A lot of people don’t like talking doges in movies…except for that great exception, Homeward Bound. “SHADOOOOOOOW!!!!” *Wipes a single tear*
A wholesome family movie, its got teenage drama and family frustrations, but at the end of the day it’s also got a heartwarming happy ending! (With a whole lotta fluff 🙂 ).
10. See Spot Run
Who doesn’t want to see the underdog make it? And David Arquette owes it all to a sassy kid and a cool, clever dog. Let the shenanigans begin!
Based on the classic children’s book, this action-packed emotional ride will leave you both exhausted and fulfilled. And it will be a long time before you forget the names Big Dan and Little Ann.
12. Turner and Hooch
The beauty of this classic is that Tom Hanks’ character learns what every dog lover already knows: No matter how much furniture they chew, no matter how bad they smell or disgusting their drool, there is nothing a good dog can do to make you fall out of love with them. (But seriously, there is SO much drool in this movie).
The Fox and the Hound isn’t just a fun movie about an goofy oddball friendship that will leave you sighing for more. It also imparts an outstanding lesson in love and loyalty, and perfectly captures the bittersweetness of growing up.
14. Marley & Me
Marley & Me was a hugely popular book and became just as popular a movie. It will make you laugh out loud, sob hysterically and go, “OMG! My pup does that too!”
Forbidden love takes on a canine form in this family favorite with a cheery ending. A fun piece of trivia about this film? It came out in 1955, making this year its 60th anniversary!
16. My Dog Tulip
It’s a wonderful, sweet love story between an elderly gentleman and his dog. The story is based off of J.R. Ackerley’s 1956 memoir of the same name.
This list would be incomplete without mentioning the incomparable and iconic Lassie (even though it’s the updated 2005 version).
Netflix has a couple other dog movies on there so go forth, puppers! Explore the world of canine cinema with zest! Happy binging!
