List Criteria: Films must be about dogs or feature dogs / puppies as major characters

Dogs have been featured in films since the dawn of cinema. The best dog movies ever feature cute pups that the audience can connect with. As they say, dog is man's best friend. If an audience doesn't like anyone in the cast, then they'll at least like the dog – this is especially important in dog movies for kids. Unlike other animals, canines are easily trained, and therefore ideal for motion picture production. This Hollywood dog movie list includes all types of dogs. So your favorite breed is probably included. For more movie ideas beyond just dogs check out our Disney movies list. You can also check out our lists of anime shows and the best comedies on Netflix.
