Amazon.com

The Buddies puppies (Air Buddies) have been a great team since birth and now that Buddha, Mudbud, Rosebud, Budderball, and B'Dawg have all been adopted by various well-matched families throughout Fernfield Washington, they've each developed a comfortable routine with their new owners. After being chastised by Ms. Mittens (voiced by Whoopi Goldberg) for chasing her kitten, B'Dawg and the rest of the Buddies meet up in the park for a game of ball, but Budderball leads them astray after spotting a truck full of ice cream. What none of them expects after their all-you-can-eat ice cream binge is that they will soon end up parachute dropped into Ferntiuktuk Alaska with what's left of the ice cream shipment. After a night spent alone in a strangely white and very cold world, they are befriended by a young husky dog named Shasta (voiced by Dylan Sprouse) who's young owner Adam (Dominic Scott Kay) wants nothing more in life than to assemble a sled dog team and compete in a dogsled race across Alaska. Assuming that the Buddies are the answer to Adam's prayers for a sled dog team, Shasta convinces the Buddies to race and enlists the legendary sled dog Talon (voiced by Kris Kristofferson) to train them all while Adam pours over his father's old sledding journal and single-handedly constructs a sled that's the perfect size for him and his team. Adam secretly enters the race against his father's wishes and thus begins a perilous, but exhilarating journey that teaches everyone involved a lot about teamwork, faith, and the importance of helping others. While many aspects of this film are completely unbelievable, the talking Buddies are adorable, the plot is significantly improved over the movie's predecessor Air Buddies, and the wholesome message will appeal to children and adults alike. (Ages 3 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

4.0 out of 5 stars Off to Alaska December 16, 2007
Format:DVD
This direct-to-video movie is a sequel to last year's Air Buddies. In this one, the five pups find themselves in Alaska, where they are soon befriended by Shasta, a Husky pup, and his owner, a young boy named Adam. The boy has big dreams of becoming a sled dog racer, and if the Buddies can get him to the finish line they will be on their way back home. They turn to a wise old Husky for mentorship, but on the day of the race, the Buds unexpectedly find themselves on their own. From what I've been able to see of the film I think many younger kids will love it (the puppies are cute), but adults will be bored.

Here are the bonus features:
* Audio commentary (from the dogs!).
* A blooper reel.
* A hip-hop-style music video of "Lean on Me" by "Hannah Montana" star Mitchel Musso.
* Behind the Scenes "dog-u-mentary," which gives you a tour of the set from the perspective of the video's canine stars B-Dawg, Rosebud and Mudbud.
* A featurette on the film's visual effects.

The movies are based in part on the 1997 feature film Air Bud.

5.0 out of 5 stars No cruelty involved February 5, 2008
By TwoHawk
Format:DVD
I think people need to be aware that the American Humane Society WAS present during the filming of this movie and none of the animals were treated inhumanely. The same person who wrote one of the Amazon reviews also wrote the same review at several other sites and is spouting misinformation.

That being said, the movie is adorable, my child loved it. He's a fan of dogs and of dog sledding and he enjoyed every bit of it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Cruelty criticism unfair February 6, 2008
Format:DVD
I am planning to rent the movie Snow Buddies to watch with my children. I was concerned about the several one star reviews that sited animal cruelty in the production of the film. I believe, based on reading the American Humane Society's press release, that the criticism is unfair and felt compelled to rebut those reviews. Here is a direct quote from the Humane Society's release:
"American Humane is conducting a full investigation on the trainer and breeders and following the progress of the puppies that have been retired from the production, many of whom have been placed in new adoptive homes. The company producing Snow Buddies has complied with each request from American Humane and has made changes so that working puppies will not be put in any position where they may fall ill. The film production company has been very cooperative and has suspended filming until further notice. All of the dogs in the production now have been checked and are being cared for by a veterinarian. We will continue to monitor the production and release our findings once the investigation is complete."
It may bother some folks that dogs were harmed for any reason and by any person in the making of a film. However, by the Human Society's own account, the film production company appears to have done their best to look out for the welfare of the animals. The problems seem to have been with the trainers and breeders. It seems unfair to punish the producers of the film by condemning their product when they appear to have been unaware of the possible improper conduct of the trainers and breeders.

4.0 out of 5 stars Disney did it again? February 7, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My family loved this movie. Disney, of course, did take care of these puppies during the filming. I love the family experience that is so lacking in movies today, this one had it. It also helps to reinforce the friendship that children have with dogs and that all dogs with the proper love and care are good dogs and can be trained well. I wish there were more movies out there like this one. Thank you so much Disney.

5.0 out of 5 stars Snow Buddies February 22, 2009
Format:DVD
This is a great movies for children. I watched it with my 5 and 7 year old grandchildren. The movie has several wonderful messages: cooperate by sticking together with family and friends through thick and thin, help the ones who need help, (even if they are the competitors) pay attention to wise advise, try hard to do your best and always remember that parents are usually on your side. Awesome. Great for a Sunday afternoon with grandkids and popcorn.

4.0 out of 5 stars Adorable Puppies and Beautiful Scenery February 8, 2008
Format:DVD
SNOW BUDDIES is a fun film for kids and adults. The story is simple and predictable--a group of 5 Golden Retriever puppies accidentally end up in Alaska and become part of a dog race. The joy in this film is watching the adorable puppies and the gorgeous Alaskan scenery. I wish the film had been in the theaters to enhance the beautiful visuals. I see a few reviews are commenting on possible animal cruelty but I feel strongly that Disney would take all precautions for the puppies' safety and well-being during the film. I love animals and this delightful film brought a smile to my face.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie !! February 7, 2008
Format:DVD
The treatment of the pups lies with the breeders and trainers not the producers. All the pups should have had their shots before they got to the US and started working on the movie. Blame the trainers and the breeders, not Disney. I have all the Air Bud movies and the previous one with the pups, we'll buy this one too. I feel like Disney would not intentionally harm animals in any movie due to public rebellion. They know people would boycott the product. Buy the movie and enjoy it! Fault the breeders and the trainers! We have all seen the horror stories and they're serving time for it right now!
