Martin is the lonely, philosophical type. Martin is also a dog. That doesn't stop him from making observations on the life of his owner, struggling millennial, Nan, and the complexity of relationships in the 21st century.
This show is adorable and funny. If the world were perfect, every show would have a talking dog in it. Some people have a problem with the dog saying "like", but I think it's endearing. It's the way they show us that he's kind of stupid or immature, "like, ya know", a valley girl or stereotypical teenager. I personally love the show. All the nasty reviews scare me. Hopefully they won't hurt the show or prevent people from watching. This one derpy reviewer was going on about how the dog's mouth moves, meaning he's talking aloud, yet Nan can't hear him. Seriously? Why do you bother watching sitcoms at all if your nerd brain can't suspend disbelief long enough to enjoy it? You should stick with documentaries. Stop watching shows you know you'll hate just so you can write a mean review.
Funny and a lovable dog!
Imagine what your dog might say about you!?
Love this show
Downward Dog taps into the soul of an animal, illustrating the frustration, the confusion, and the wonder of a (talking) house dog. Made to entertain the kid in all of us, this story line is all grown-up. It's a bowl-of-Cheerios for dinner and a what's-on-tv kind of entertainment. 5* if you love talking dogs and regular normal people.
Maybe make it a little more kid friendly. But I love the series! Really funny 😂👍
Funniest show in years!

This might be the funniest show on the planet. If you have ever owned a dog, this will have you laughing out loud. It is brilliant and perfect.
Just...yikes. How did this drivel end up on the air?
i love the "talking dog genre" but this show has major issues. out of the gate it failed in a formal level because of the vfx animation of the dog's mouth moving as it speaks. are we supposed to think the dog is literally speaking? no, because his human, played by the talented allison tollman, can't hear him speak. mr. ed is the only taking animal that ever pulled off speaking irl (i.e. allowing the audience to suspend their disbelief in order to go along with the premise that, not only is this animal thinking like a human, but also speaking like one too.) it also just looks really cheesy. can't get past it.
