Most people have their morning routines which probably includes feeding the dog, crabbing a cup of coffee, and heading out the door - while their pets stay at home. But what are the pets doing when their humans aren't home? The Secret Life of Pets 2 continues to follow the story of a dog named Max. However, in this film Max's owner gets married and has a baby, so now Max has a whole new set of concerns. There is also a subplot which includes the the bunny Snowball (Kevin Hart) and a new dog, Daisy (Tiffany Haddish). This duo is trying to rescue an abused tiger from a Russian circus.
