Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this holiday movie is generally worry free. A puppy disobeys his father and ventures out on his own, where he gets into trouble and needs to be rescued. Several scenes occur in a dog pound where dogs are in cages and sometimes sad. The villainous dog catcher sneaks up on puppies and traps them, which provides a few moments of tension. At one point Santa Claus seems comatose, which might bother or confuse younger children.
Some mild peril when Puppy Paws is caught by the dog catcher. It briefly seems like Christmas (and Santa) might be finished forever.
"Doo-doo" is the extent of it.
Thinking about others, being kind even when others aren't, and taking responsibility for your actions are the positive messages here. The puppies have a conversation together blaming Puppy Paws for their problems, but they quickly realize they're not being kind and change tactics. However, there's no acknowledgment of cultures that do not celebrate Christmas.
This puppy series is highly marketed.
