The cast of Dog Days talked about their latest film which is in theaters today about this heartwarming film.
The movie directed by Ken Marino takes a few different stories of people such as Elizabeth who is a charming anchorwoman who seeks advice from her dog’s therapist.

Garrett pines for a woman while trying to keep his adopt-a-dog business afloat. The beloved canines in their lives soon start to influence their careers, friendships and romantic relationships in funny and unexpected ways.
“I think write now the world is a crazy place. I just came off of directing “How to be a Latin Lover” which is a family movie even though teaching a kid how to be a latin lover it was still a family movie. What was nice about that movie I was able to bring them into the editing room…and that made me want do another movie I can share with my children,” said Marino.
He added, “this movie came along and I just really like all the relationships in it. I am a big dog lover and my kids have two rescue’s at home an I think it was just a good time to do it.”
“I feel like right now it is important to have movies that you can take you whole family and escape the madness.”
As for Vanessa Hudgens the role of Tara really related to her character. “Me personally when I woke up at 27 I had no idea who I was and what I was doing in my life. That is where we meet Tara..Is where I started my first day at 27,” said Hudgens.
As for Elizabeth played by Nina Dobrev her character felt relatable. “Everyone seems put together or they try to seem put together we are all quietly falling a part in the inside and she’s constantly trying to prove to the world that she is fine even when she gets hart broken she won’t even admit to the dog therapist she is talking to herself.”
Dobrev added, “It is hard once your heart broken to trust again until you find the person who makes you believe.”
Dog Days is a wonderful family movie and great for young and the young at heart, even if your a cat person. The film is currently in theaters now and tickets can be purchased via ATOM Tickets.
