Santa Buddies

Just in time for the holiday season in 2009 Disney put out their latest in the “Buddies” movies – “Santa Buddies”. The movie stars a group of puppies (“the Buddies”) who decide to take a vacation to the North Pole. One of the puppies is on the “naughty” list and the son of Santa Paws, Puppy Paws decides to show him how to be a good puppy while the entire gang tries to teach everyone the true meaning of Christmas.

Puppy Paws and Santa Paws are reported as being a Great Pyrenees while the Buddies are retrievers. Great Pyrenees are very large (over 100 pounds) herding dogs from the Basque region of Spain and France. Retrievers are very popular pets and often very friendly, especially as puppies.

Erin Bilderback, Sarah Cole, Claire Dore, Jordan Fines, Meghan C Fraser, Andrea Gold, Trish Judd, Shelly Lampman, Joseph McCarter, Julie Strang, Tiffany Wall, and Nicole Zuehl are all credited for being the on set trainers.
