Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Kids may enjoy the brightly colored, doggy-centric universe on display here. And parents who can handle the quirk-attack may like the positive messages and enjoyable appearance by former Go-Go's guitarist Jane Wiedlin (to say nothing of the hilariously drab performance of the dog, Pijo).

In the world of DOGGIE B, everyone is unbelievably eccentric. This is the world of professional dog shows, though, so perhaps it's a more accurate portrayal than it initially seems. Unfortunately, some of the perfectly heartwarming lessons to be found here about following one's dreams, and what it means to devote yourself to something bigger than you, are a bit less accessible under the thick layer of over-the-top costumes, glittery leggings, impossibly high hairstyles, and an otherwise Jon Waters-meets-Best-in-Show aesthetic.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
