The main theme of Wilfred is composed by Jim Dooley. He chose to use broken and out of tune musical instruments as well as children and dog toys to help compose the melody. Jim received a nomination at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMA) in 2011 for Best Original Score for his use of unconventional devises. See more
