This may be hard to believe, it’s been exactly five years since Dog With a Blog aired its final episode after three years on the air! Yep, that’s right. The iconic Disney Channel series aired its finale episode on September 25, 2015, and fans cannot believe how fast time has flown by. It seriously feels like just yesterday that everyone was watching the Jennings-James family on their TV screens, and there’s not a day that goes by that they don’t miss it.
For those who forgot, the three season show was about a family that discovered their dog, Stan, could not only talk, but was also writing a blog about the household. It starred G Hannelius, Blake Michael, Francesca Capaldi, Regan Burns, Stephen Full, Beth Littleford and more! While there’s been no talk of the cast reuniting onscreen just yet, the show aired on Disney for a total of three seasons before airing its series finale.
In the last episode, after keeping Stan’s identity a secret, the entire Jennings-James family reveal that they’ve had a talking dog for all these years. Eventually, Stan wins an Hollywood Entertainment Award and becomes famous, which leads to his last blog. The show’s final scene show him publishing his last post, which thank the family for all their love.
While chatting about the show’s ending during a 2015 interview with Shine On Media, Blake revealed that he was “satisfied” with the show’s ultimate ending.
“There was a lot of hype leading up to it. the whole idea is that the dog talks and we need to keep this secret,” the actor explained. “And the finale is … how long can you really keep it a secret. I think we left it at a great end.”
Blake also revealed where he thought that his Dog With a Blog character would be in 10 years.
“Tyler would probably be owning some kind of a franchise of burrito trucks,” the Disney alum shared. “Or, maybe, running a female modeling agency. That sounds very Tyler. … Maybe some eyebrow comb product. A miniature eyebrow comb. I think that could work.”

16 year old Tyler James, Chloes brother and Avery popular step-brother who seems to get by with his good looks, much to Averys dismaym often causing the two to fight. Manipulative and occasionally a little vain, good things always seem to happen to him; he can get any pretty girl to go out with him and is extremely charismatic. Although very smart, Tyler is slacking off in school due to laziness, but in the pilot, he learns he needs to act more like a brother towards Avery and will, on some occasions, show his soft, serious, and mature side. Althogh he can sometimes be shown to be care-free and too laidback, Tyler will rush to a persons side when they need help, showing that he cares about people and is not at all judgemental or a bad person , as seen in pilot when he comforts Avery after she breaks down crying after losing Stan. He can also be shown to be a little air-headed , but he has a quick wit and like Avery , he knows he knows what he wants and he will not stop at anything to get it, showing that he has stars in his eyes and he is determined to show that he is more than just ” the popular guy”. Although he is very manipulative, ironically, Tyler is completly unaware when people are manipulating him, such as when Chloe convinces him to drive her to get her ears pierced when Ellen and Bennett already refused.
Tyler is revealed, despite his laid back attitude, to have an incredible aptitude for mathematics, he is able to work out incredibly complicated calculations and equations in his head. He also possesses similar counting abilities, able to accurately count well into the thousands.
Tyler was introduced as “Tyler James. Thats the face of a smooth playa!”. Tyler was shown as a bad role model, but was still a nice person to Avery.
Tyler received his learners permit, and began attempting to drive. Bennett was being over-protective by coaching him to check his mirrors and keep his eyes on the road. Ellen was scared out of her mind, which shows that they both dont enjoy the fact that Tyler is driving. After Stan crashed the car, the family blamed Tyler for it because he was the only one other than his parents that could drive.
Tyler pulled a prank on Avery by pretending that East Glendale took Stan, but instead he snuck him back home. After Avery stole the East Glendale pig, he helped the rest of the family put it back.
Tyler flirted with Nikki when she came to the house. They went on a dog-walking date together, and had a great time. But after she left, Stan noticed a beautiful poodle under custody of the most annoying girl in school, Christie. Stan told him that the wingman code should be kept in honor, so to pay him back Tyler went on the double date. Tyler had to cancel his date with Nikki so the dogs could hang out. As a result, Nikki noticed them and called Tyler a liar for saying he had to pass a horrible class (although Tyler texted it as “pass some horrible gas”). The two made up after Avery falsely revealed that he was a dog whisperer, and he figured out that Evita had a bur in her paw.

As Bennett and Ellen are coming home, they send Nikki to stall them to buy time to look for her. Eventually they find her, but not after the cops arrive at their house. Chloe begins to think that the police are after her for candy theft, so she leaves the house. Bennett and Ellen later find her outside, by herself, which she is supposed to have someone with her, so they tell her she will be getting big punishment, and leave her in the kitchen to talk to Tyler and Avery in the living room, Chloe, not wanting “big punishment”, goes outside to avoid them. In the living room, Bennett and Ellen ground Tyler and Avery from screen-time for a week, and when Bennet goes to get Chloe, he finds shes not there.

Stan sleeps through the entire time, so the family agrees that Stan is completely useless as a guard dog. Now with Stan out of the picture, they get the homewachter 9000. The kids realize that theyll never be able to keep Stans secret with cameras everywhere throughout the household, so they come up with their own plan to prove that Stan can be a great guard dog.
