The problem is, "inexpensive" and "point and shoot" and non-blurry motion pictures don't really go hand-in-hand. Really, unless you are willing to shell out for an entry level DSLR, probably your best bet is a mirrorless, interchangeable lens camera. I have a Panasonic GX85, and I love it. I do most of my "serious" photography with a higher end DSLR, but the GX85 is small, light weight and a great value. You can get one on Amazon, including a kit lens that does a very nice job, for just under $700. You can also get a low-end, "enthusiast" level DSLR like a Canon Rebel for under $600, but they are very plasticky feeling.
Unfortunately, even those cameras will only do a good job of dog action shots if you are outdoors in good light. The sensors are just too small for great indoor action shots.
