The story revolves around Dave Douglas, a successful assistant district attorney who is prosecuting Dr. Kozak, a lab researcher who is suspected of illegal animal experimentation. Dave's wife, Rebecca, and their children, Carly and Josh, are enthusiastic animal lovers and regularly visit animal shelters to rescue dogs.

One fateful day, Dave is bitten by a mysterious dog while investigating the lab where Dr. Kozak works. After returning home, he begins to experience strange behavior and uncontrollable urges. As he struggles to adjust to his transformation, which includes experiencing dog senses and behaviors, his family is thrown into a chaotic adventure helping him find a cure.
