But getting to New York is just the first part of the adventure! Join Rainy on this family friendly journey and learn the lessons about true friendship and love.

Dove Review

Everyone has seen or heard stories where a family pet has traveled long distances to reunite with their owners. The first part of this movie is about Rainy’s journey to New York to find his best friend Jimmy. This dog is amazing regarding the things he can do, especially once he gets to the big city. Once the two friends are back together, the two try to find a way to stay together and here is where the adventure really begins.

“Cool Dog” is a comical and hilarious movie at times about a boy and his dog. It contains a lot of slapstick violence, but is a family movie that everyone can enjoy. We award this film the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
