Continuity 

When the Judge asked for the counselors to approach her desk (in the courtroom,) her hand is shown off her microphone when the camera is not towards her, but when it is her hand is covering the microphone so no one can hear her. It happens so quickly that it is impossible for a human to actually do it in that much time.

Continuity 

When Dave turns into a dog on the highway, his robe shrinks to fit him instead of falling off as all his previous clothes had.
As the 300-year-old dog escapes the lab, Dr. Kozak's hands shift places drastically between shots.
Rebecca drops legal books on Dave's desk to get his attention. In the next shot the books are stacked again.
In the opening breakfast scene, when Josh gets up from the table to go to school he leaves his two plates of eggs and toast on the table. In the next shot he is leaving with his sister and the plates are now magically on the kitchen counter.

Factual errors 

After the dog bites Dave Douglas, it is taken away to the shelter to be tested for rabies. The standard test for rabies (and the only one that could return such rapid results) is the direct fluorescent antibody test, which is performed on a sample of the animal's brain tissue. Typically, the animal's brain or entire head is removed and sent to a lab for testing.

The music Josh Douglas sings is from the movie Grease, not the stage version of Grease. Also you can hear John Travolta singing Greased Lightening, again from the movie.
When Dave is distracted driving to the courthouse, he slams on the brakes and the car slides to a stop. The age of car that he is driving would undoubtedly feature ABS (Anti-lock brakes) and therefore would unlikely slide in this manner.

Plot holes 

The dog shows up for the anniversary dinner with flowers. How did he get them? If he stole them, how did he get them wrapped?

Revealing mistakes 

When Dave gets out of the shower, he stands in front of the mirror and shakes himself dry like a dog, but the mirror gets no water on it.
When Dave Douglas falls over in his cage you can clearly see a pad in the cage that was not there before. This is probably a stunt pad to break his fall.
When Dave Douglas is supposed to be naked in the lab you can see he apparently has underwear on under his lab coat when all the animals are escaping.
