This One's for the Dogs... Literally

BURBANK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 1, 2006 --Walt Disney Home Entertainment presents "The Shaggy Dog" on DVD today and introduces a Disney first, a Bark Along "Bone-Us Feature" -- made especially for the family dog to enjoy! This special feature combines fun footage of Disney dogs playing, jumping and having fun, with a "barking and woofing" audio track option created especially for the entertainment of the canines in the house -- with or without their owners!

"The dogs really respond excitedly to the Bark Along," says professional trainer, Ray Beal of Birds & Animals Unlimited. "It is very entertaining and makes great company when you have to be away from them."

For the humans in the family there is an alternate audio track on the Bark Along that features a new version of the song "Woof There It Is" with new lyrics created especially for "The Shaggy Dog." Additional bonus features include: deleted scenes; bloopers and hilarious outtakes from the set; and director/producer feature audio commentary.

"The Shaggy Dog" is the fresh, funny update of one of Disney's most beloved family comedy classics. Starring the ever-popular Tim Allen ("The Santa Clause," TV's "Home Improvement"), "The Shaggy Dog" follows the hysterically hairy adventures of Deputy D.A. Dave Douglas (Allen), a workaholic trial lawyer and sometimes distant dad, who by a strange accident turns into a big shaggy dog.
