Mild comic romance between dogs. Some of the male dogs genitals may be visible in some scenes. A teen girl and boy kiss. A husband and wife kiss. Dogs kiss in several scenes. A teenage girl wears lowcut tops that reveal cleavage. A male wears sagging pants and we see butt cleavage.

When Bruce and Andi go to the pound to rescue their dog we see an animal control oficier leading a dog into a room and we see a sign that reads "we can only hold animals for 72 hours" It is implied the dog was euthanised.

Two adults enter the hotel looking for the kids they end up in the bathroom go down a conveyer belt and a chute leading to a dumpster filled with dog poop, the man then exclaims "we're in deep doo-doo"

A scene when the dogs are being rounded up and taken away may be scary to younger viewers.
