In this spin-off of the Air Bud franchise, five pups follow an ice cream transport truck to a plane and end up flying with the ice cream shipment to Alaska. There they find a pup friend and a boy who needs five dogs for a big race.
Animals are strictly forbidden at Andi and her little brother Bruce's foster home. But for Friday, the adorable dog they secretly care for, they're ready to risk everything. They finally find him an ideal shelter, a huge abandoned hotel that Bruce transforms thanks to his engineering genius. In what has become an incredible paradise for dogs, Friday is soon joined by all kinds of furry friends, so many in fact that their barks alert the neighbors...and the local pound, who can't understand the disappearance of all the stray dogs. Andi and Bruce will have to call on all their friends and all their imagination to stop the hotel's secret from being discovered.Written by
The actors found the film particularly challenging to shoot due to the dog trainers constantly jumping, whistling and shouting instructions to the dogs just outside the frame. See more »
(at around 1 minute) Heather is trying to coax the three legged dog onto the ramp, she then praises him saying "good boy". Then at the end (at around 1h 22 minutes) Bernie calls her "Chelsea". See more »
If you look at it, dogs have three basic needs. That's- that's eatting, sleeping, peeing and pooping.
No, I think peeing and pooping is one.
Uh, I've stepped in both and I have to disagree.

Saw this movie opening night. Took 5 kids and my wife and sis-in-law. all of us enjoyed it. very clean. enjoyable. hilarious at times and well written.
I normally hate child actors, but for once i was not annoyed. Emma Roberts is gorgeous. at 23, she looks young, but has moments in which she gives a glimpse of wisdom. her younger brother in the movie was very tolerable, and in fact delivered some excellent subtlety. neither over acted.
the social worker couple were very good while Lisa kudrow continues to amaze me that she even has a career. OK, now the part that matters: the dogs were hilarious, likable, and intriguing. the plot was very well done and for the first time in years, i am intrigued and eagerly anticipating the "making of" documentary on the DVD. excellent direction, pacing, and scripting.
