Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An indie that benefits from amusing characters, strong thesping and taut situational humor."
‑ Lael Loewenstein, Variety
"A well-made but emotionally scattered film whose hero gives his heart only to the dog."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"A pleasingly unpredictable stroll across all of the boundaries that we believe separate us -- and that actually do."
‑ Bob Strauss, Los Angeles Daily News
"It's mighty tedious for the viewer who has to contend with unpleasant characters, hit-and-miss performances and awkwardly staged scenes."
‑ Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter

‑ Gregory Weinkauf, New Times
"This isn't a retooled genre piece, the tale of a guy and his gun, but an amiably idiosyncratic work."
‑ Manohla Dargis, Los Angeles Times
"Trying hard to be cute, The Dogwalker is instead as muddled as can be, tripping up the film as if its ankles were entwined in its own leash."
‑ Luisa F. Ribeiro, Boxoffice Magazine
