10 Best Dog Movies of All Time

by Joe Genzel   |  May 13th, 2013 11

If there’s one thing we never tire of here at Gun Dog, it’s quoting lines from our favorite movies. We can rattle off scenes from Goodfellas for hours: “Spida, on ya way ovah here, bring me a cuddy and wada, huh.” Well, we thought instead of wasting our valuable time doing our best Joe Pesci impersonations around the office, it’d be a bit more productive—and entertaining for you—if we helped you share in the fun.

So we took our passion for great movies and came up with a list of the best dog films of all time. Not all of these flicks are “dog movies,” per se, but rest assured, there’s a pooch in every one of them. We also considered the watchability of each film—if we couldn’t get through it, it’s hard to expect you to. The result is our list of the 10 best dog movies of all time.

  • Elizabeth Parker

    Some great dog movies in the list but lets not forget the original ‘Where the Redfern Grows’.

    • Tom McCook

      Where the Red Fern Grows is one of the best along with its sequel. Ole Yellow was one of my Disney favorites. The TV series “Lassie” and “Rin Tin Tin” were greats as well.

  • Christopher J. Burnham

    Why isn’t Yeller the #1 movie? Hey Topper has that terrior, I forget his name Ascot?

  • Christopher J. Burnham

    The Dog of Flanders is also an A+ dog movie and I think Old Yeller was used as the Dog of Flanders! My kids love it and so do I.

  • Christopher J. Burnham

    The kid in Dog of Flanders is Alan Ladds son and he was in Misty and his grandfather in the movie is the Dad in Lassie the original movie with a really young Elizabeth Taylor and he is the Dad in National Velvet. For what it’s worth.

  • Shrey Singhal

    Hey Mister!@Joe Genzel….Where is “Hachiko: A Dog Tale”….it should be on the top.

  • Kathy

    Rin Tin Tin with out a doubt should be included in there

  • Kathy

    One Hundred and One Dalmatians is another

  • Kathy

    Lassie and Old Yeller most definitely

  • Kathy

    Watch Finding Rin Tin Tin if you like dog movies

    Hachi- A dog’s tale is not on the list. It is the best dog movie I have ever seen!
