Good family movie

I liked rock dog because for once in the movie world there was no adult humor or rude talk. I'm so tired of going to a kids movie for kids and they cater to adults. This was good animation not too much fast in your face so it's not too overstimulating for children and I thought it was a cute story. In the end, I liked how the dog and wolf shook hands. I could do without them saying stupid and idiot tho. That's not necessary. Overall a good movie and I was thankful that I could take my kid to the movies for once without crazy violence adult humor and rudeness. My kids loved it and they loved the music too!
