When Phil and Debbie Winslow relocate from their native Kansas to the sunny climes of Orange County, their big-hearted, havoc-wreaking Great Dane gets a taste of the dog's life, California-style.
Marmaduke is a chatty, talking dog (Owen Wilsonäó»s voice), talking to his four-legged friends and the audience. Marmaduke and his family move to California from Kansas, where he is snubbed at the dog park by the purebreds, harassed by a Rottweiler and falls for a collie. His family includes a work-obsessed father and a happy, ever smiling mother- Phil and Debbie Winslow, and the family cat, Carlos. They all indulge in Maradukeäó»s drooling, fun loving antics. Marmaduke becomes the top dog at the dog park through a little scheming but soon his ruse is discovered and his reign is over. Before Marmaduke and Phil can redeem themselves with a YouTube Video, the movie offers doggy surfing, and an all-dog party!
