The dad makes a brief joke about potentially having to eat their pet dog. The rest of the family rejects the idea and he says it was a bad joke.

This is what the movie is about.

The father is shown as very controlling, arranging a journey against the familys will, and breaking the kids devices twice. You could argue the first broken device was an accident, but the device was essential for his child's study, he didn't say sorry nor did he replace it. The second time he breaks the kids phones with manic joy. The father is also disinterested about his daughter's hobby or study.

The daughter is dismissive of her father and the movie takes a "both sides" stance towards this. Showing the daughter forgiving her father as correct and right thing to do.

A theme in the movie is how the main family and many other people are dependent on their technology, but it is for comedy purposes and not really serious addiction.

Not exactly a horse, but as mentioned in some other comments there is a mule that is briefly shown in a river. It didn't actually die according to a scene a few seconds later, though.

The mule's outcome of the situation is indeterminable. It's followed by a screen that says "No animals were harmed in this documentary" which could be taken literally or as satire.

During the climax, the dog strapped to the front of the car, but is never harmed by this. There are a few moments where the dog is in peril, but he is never harmed.

A bunch (I'd say 10) of spiders crawl on the car. Very short scene (1-2 sec), for comedy purposes (no danger from the spiders, no interaction with them, no consequence, they are just briefly passing by)

About 7 minutes in, someone jokingly semi-pretends not to be able to breathe - by gasping, looking strained and saying "I can't breathe". It lasts less than a second.

SPOILER: Countless people are put in small individual pods and told that they'll soon be launched into space. They're sure to die horribly from cold, starvation and/or lack of oxygen (or whatever; I'm no rocket scientist). At the very least, that must be considered psychological torture.

Some robots and characterized machines are killed in very comedic ways. It’s cartoonish and not distressing since it keeps the main characters safe.

Not unless you count electronics. There's a portion where the family goes to a mall to find pretty much every electronic has been "possessed" by the antagonist and they're all evil now.

No, however there is one scene where a character mentions having to use the bathroom during an action scene. I half-expected him to make a comment afterwards about how he didn't need to use the bathroom anymore due to wetting his pants out of fear, but he doesn't. (After successfully finding a bathroom, he also says it was a false alarm.)

Yes, there is! There are many, in fact, showing the same situation: Countless people are forcibly placed in transparent one-person pods that they can't escape from, and the pods are stacked. The people stay in the pods throughout most of the movie. We don't see many of them up close, though, and the claustrophobic aspect isn't played up.

There is one very brief scene with obscured non-sexual nudity (in a flashback, it's shown that the family once had to return home naked and they're shown running by with things covering their private areas - played for laughs), but other than that, no.

No, but there is a scene where the father asks his teenage daughter "How do I look?" and she tells him he looks great. It's portrayed as a tender moment between them, but the father is controlling and infantilizing towards her throughout the movie, which can put an uncomfortable edge on the interaction.

The crash itself isn't shown, but the crashed plane is. It's a brief moment where the family goes passed a down plane, the doors open and the yellow slide still there, implying people got off. No people are seen.

There is a kind of 'gun' that shoots a beam that can freeze people and objects and move them around. They are used on many humans in the movie, but do not harm them.
