In a world where humans and anthropomorphic animals, e.g. talking dogs co-exist, a macho but lonely Rottweiler police dog named Max is ordered to go undercover as a primped show dog in a prestigious dog show with his human partner Frank (Will Arnett) to stop an animal-smuggling scheme that is using the dog show as a front. When Max finds out the criminals are planning to sell Ling-Li, a baby giant panda, at the upcoming Canini Invitational dog show in Las Vegas, he's forced to go undercover as an entrant accompanied by Frank posing as his trainer..

Alternate Versions

Two scenes were cut upon the second week of its US theatrical release - these edits also apply to the home release. After receiving complaints, presenter/distributor, Global Road Entertainment deemed them inappropriate for children. They concerned the subplot of Max having to have his testicles touched by the show judges. However, all UK (and therefore Irish) releases are uncut with the same PG rating - according to the BBFC, this is because the controversial scenes are "entirely innocent, non-sexual and occur within the clear context of preparation for and judging in a dog show".
