Controversy erupted last month when TMZ published a minute-long video that appeared to show a German Shepherd unwilling to perform a stunt for the film in rushing water.
An independent investigation has concluded that no animals were harmed on the set of A Dog's objective, according to American Humane, the group in charge of overseeing animal safety on the film's set.
"I found the video we've all seen to be shocking because when I was on set, the ethic of everyone was the safety and comfort of the dogs", Cameron said in a statement to E! No signs of stress were found, according to the report.
American Humane says the investigation confirmed preliminary findings that the two scenes shown in the edited video were filmed at different times and that the first scene was stopped after the dog showed signs of stress.
American Humane, the group responsible for overseeing animal safety on film sets, has cleared the movie "A Dog's Purpose" of allegations of animal cruelty.
The on-set representative, who American Humane said was joined by three trainers, a safety coordinator and a water safety diver throughout the scene, was suspended after the video's release.
-The dog was selected for his love of the water, and had been professionally trained and conditioned for the water scenes over the course of six weeks, using positive training techniques.

"A Dog's Purpose" earned $18.4 million in its opening weekend, despite backlash stemming from the video.
"I signed on to a film that truly stands out as one of the most beautiful love letters to animals I have ever seen", actor Josh Gad, who voices one of the titular dogs in the movie, wrote in a message on Twitter shortly after the video began to circulate.
The report did, however, find that the dog was momentarily stressed.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals called for a boycott of "A Dog's goal", which opened in theatres on January 27.
Following the video's release, director Lasse Halstrom and star Dennis Quaid both vehemently denied that any dogs were mistreated during filming.
"The investigation and eyewitness reports affirmed that throughout its work on the set, the dog was treated with great care, attentiveness and respect", American Humane said.
