All Dogs go to Heaven (1989)
A must watch film for children and adults alike that follows Charlie B. Barkin (voiced by Burt Reynolds) and his friends Itchy and Anne-Marie, a young orphan girl. The movie centres around Charlie’s quest to get revenge for his untimely death.
Marley and Me (2008)
A weepy for sure (don’t say we didn’t warn you!) based on John Grogan’s memoir of his beloved and mischievous Labrador. Starring Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston as Marley’s owners. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll also definitely give your dog an extra tight hug before bedtime after watching this!
The Fox and the Hound (1981)
A childhood favourite about the friendship between a fox and a hound, this one never fails to pull at the heart strings! Tod, a young orphaned fox makes friends with his neighbour Copper who is a hound and his natural enemy. This movie depicts their friendship right up to adulthood.
Lady and the Tramp (1955)
Who said that romance was just for us humans? This is a heartfelt love story of a Cocker Spaniel and a mutt and their romantic adventures. We all know the spaghetti and meatball scene!
Okay, there’s eight of them in total but we are talking about the first two. A laugh out loud family comedy about a St Bernard and his adopted family the Newtons.Beethoven’s antics and impact on the Newton family will definitely put a smile on your face. Everybody loves when the dog wins the day!
Whether this is the first time you watch them or the tenth, these movies are a must see for all dog lovers out there! This is our top five, but there is an abundance of dog-themed movies out there that we could have mentioned. Doggy movie marathon anyone?
