The movie stars Pascal Lamothe-Kipnes, Stephen Huszar, and Kathryn Davis. Read on to learn all about where the movie was filmed and see behind-the-scenes moments from the cast.

‘Everything Puppies’ Was Filmed in Ontario, Canada

According to IMDb, “Everything Puppies” was filmed in Ontario, Canada. Scenes of the movie can be seen in locations such as Manotick, Ontario, according to this X post.

The Ottawa Film Office reported, “Cuteness abounds in the Ottawa-shot romantic comedy Everything Puppies, premiering May 18 on the @hallmarkchannel + @w_network.”

According to Manotick Messenger (whose article originally thought this would be a Christmas movie,) the movie’s original name was “Puppies Everywhere, All the Time.” It was filmed back in November. One of the movie’s filming locations was the Claudette Cain Park in Riverside South, near the Vimy Bridge.

According to a Facebook post in the Manotick Neighbours Helping Neighbours public group, another filming location was at the PetValu store. A few people replying to the post mentioned that they had been background actors.

One person wrote, “We were there from 7:30 AM to 8:30 PM on Tuesday. I got to walk a dog through the store at the end of the day – I was so excited about that cuz I love dogs!”

Lamothe-Kipnes wrote: “Watch Everything Puppies on May 18th on @hallmarkchannel for a chance to see most adorable dogs and little nugget puppies ❤️🐶 Thank you to @firesidepictures for a wonderful experience and many thanks to the amazing cast and crew!!”

Darin Baker posted a selfie on Instagram while filming. “BEST three words …ACTIVE MOVIE SET….it’s so great to be back at work!! #iLoveMyJob,” Baker shared.

Kayla Lakhani wrote: “Check it out, it’s super cute! 🐾 A great time working with everyone on set, grateful to have met an amazing group of collaborators! ✨”

In an interview with Heavy, Huzsar said that filming in Ottawa, away from where he lives in Vancouver and Los Angeles, allowed him to focus on the film more closely.

“It’s nice to get yourself outside of that habitual environment and get in something that’s different,” he said.

He also said that he had a lot of cute interactions with his puppy co-stars.

“They’re these little adorable things that just sort of nuzzle up to you and make you feel so special,” he shared.
