- Of the first five films in the Air Bud series, this is the only one where Buddy is not dognapped by the villains, and instead helps Josh, Emma, Tammy and Andrea rescue his offspring.
- All the celebrity players at the end have since retired. Briana Scurry retired due to a head injury.
- Despite not much time passing since the previous film, Andrea has aged a few years into preadolescence.
- This is Molly only appearance in the original series. It seems that she and Buddy don't have any contact with each other after this film, possibly because her family moved away, as the Putters aren't seen or mentioned again, either. Four of the puppies only have one more appearance, themselves, in the next film, only to be dropped in Spikes Back, the fifth and final film in the original series. Molly does appear again in Air Buddies, although she's owned by a new family, living across the way from the Framms-Sullivans, and the former puppies are seemingly ignored, in favour of Buddy and Molly's new litter of puppies, called the Buddies, who are in a state of perpetual youth, so that their adventures can be everlasting.
- It's unknown if the grandmother Josh talks to on the phone is the same one in Spikes Back.
