- "Finally! I'm the only bear! And all the animals are gonna worship me, just like they did Boog!"
- ―Doug after disguising himself as Boog in the forest.[src]
Doug was fed up at working at the Maslova Family Circus and having to do things for Ursa. When Boog arrived (having seen a poster of the circus), Doug seized the opportunity to finally escape and have Boog replace him so the circus people do not get suspicious. While in the Timberline National Forest, Doug was overjoyed that the animals there would worship him (like the other animals did when he was at the wild animal park); so he went undercover as Boog and had the animals do everything for him (treating them like slaves). Eventually, when the wilds discovered Doug's true identity and he told them that Boog was at the circus (and that they were returning to Russia), Elliot decided to go to the circus and get Boog back, as well as apologize to him for ditching him on guys' trip. That night, when Doug returned to the circus to see Alistair, he realized his errors and apologized to Boog for tricking him and Doug and Alistair are called for their next act (which becomes a success).
Doug is first seen in the Maslova Family Circus. He is standing up and clearly bored as he is seen yawning shortly before he is knocked down by Ursa. Later on, he convinces Boog to switch places, but it eventually turns out that Doug was just planning to escape the whole time.
While at the Timberline National Forest (disguised as Boog by putting mud on himself, thus smoothing his fluffy fur down), he treats Elliot and the other wilds like slaves, which makes Gisela and Giselita suspicious. So they go to Serge and Deni and ask them to find Giselle in exchange for becoming their best friends. When Doug's identity is exposed, the wilds make Doug tell them where Boog is, and they all hatch a rescue mission to save their 900-pound friend.
At the film's climax, Doug tries to return and apologize to Boog for tricking him, but is suddenly chased off by Bob and Bobbie, who mistake Doug for Bigfoot. He eventually escapes them and goes to the circus and apologizes to Alistair and Boog, returning in time for his act with the llama. His return allows Ursa to leave as she previously felt she could not because "a Russian circus with no bear is no circus at all."
Unlike Boog, Doug is mean, rude, sneaky, conniving, cold, greedy, arrogant, vain, controlling, uncaring, short-tempered, snide, bratty, rebellious, obstreperous, abusive, sly, selfish, egotistical, argumentative, boastful, bossy, unpleasant, condescending, traitorous, and self-centered. He is also annoyed by Alistair sometimes.
Doug doesn't necessarily care for anyone's life or well-being other than his own.
Doug is manipulative and persuasive as he was able to persuade Boog into taking his place in the Maslova Family Circus.
At the end of the film, Doug returns to see Alistair and apologizes to Boog for tricking him and explains that he now knows that he never knew what he had until he lost it, thus reforming with a change of heart.
In short, Doug is Boog's doppelganger, the only difference being his fur and voice.
- (To all of Boog's best friends) I'm not your servant! I'M KING OF THE JUNGLE!
- Before Open Season 3 was released, Doug was once rumored to be voiced by Phil LaMarr, but this wasn't true.
- Originally, Doug's name was mistaken to be "Alistair", but it turned out that Alistair is Doug's best friend.
