Storyline

Calvin Wheeler is a scheming 13-year-old boy with everything going for him, except for an original issue of his precious comic book collection. When a prized show-dog chases him down while skateboarding one day, his owner inadvertently convinces him to adopt and train a dog of his own. However the only one available, is an uncouth stray Labrador/St. Bernard-mix named Tyko from a local animal shelter, who proves to be more than anybody can handle. Written by Daniel Timothy Dey

Watch it for the dog ONLY
5 February 2006 | by adorable-pizzaSee all my reviews

I found this one of the most annoying movie in my LIFE! look the message is OK and how he is a selfish boy who be comes good by the power of loving a dog. Ahhhh. But everything else I hated especially the dog show the guy doesn't complete any of the obstacles in the race yet he breaks the course record. And the last one the dog doesn't do anything all you see is the boy doing tricks on a skateboard while the dog avoids the tricks and runs around them watching the boy do the tricks he should be doing. The evil running champ boy is about as predictable and annoying to watch than any other villain of a movie I've ever seen before. It is probably the best Disney movie that didn't make it to the movies that I've ever seen (that ain't saying much and that's mainly because of the dog acting) but easily the most annoying one I've ever seen and if it deserves any kind of prize it should go to the dog.
