Bolt was never a "regular dog." His whole life he thought he was a "super dog," and once Bolt realizes he | doesn't have super powers Mittens decides to train him to be a "regular dog."
6: Crossing the First Threshold Bolt is finally realizing that he is no longer at home anymore. He tries using his super powers and isn't understanding why they aren't working. Mittens thinks hes absolutely crazy for thinking he is even a super dog, and simply laughs at him every time he says he is.
7: Tests, Allies, and Enemies Bolt's superpowers are tested on the journey back to Hollywood. His heat vision won't cut through the lock on the van. When they get out of the train he bleeds and he realizes that he isn't invincible. His stomach starts growling and he gets hungry for the first time. He tries to use his super bark to get Mittens out of the tree and she doesn't move an inch. Mittens and Rhino stayed with Bolt through all of this and showed him that it was okay if he wasn't a super dog. The dog catcher captures Bolt and Mittens and puts a halt to their journey.

9: Ordeal Bolt begins to feel that he can't save Mittens from the animal shelter because he isn't a super dog. He thinks that he is worthless and incapable of doing anything. Bolt is realizing that he doesn't really have super powers and decides to give up on trying to save penny and Mittens but Rhino convinces him that he can't give up and that they need a hero to go on.
