2020 has been a particularly tough year for all of us and since dogs are known to relieve stress, I wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to freshen up your Instagram feed by following a bunch of cute doggos. Here are my picks for 16 dog Instagram accounts to follow.
Plus, did you know that International Dog Day is on August 26th? And what better way to celebrate than by flooding your Instagram feed with cute puppers! Keep reading to discover the 24 best dog Instagram accounts to follow ASAP!
Corgis are undeniably hard to resist, but a white corgi… now that’s next level! Winston is a super cute white corgi that lives in New York City. He’s very fluffy and loves to adventure, whether it’s in the city or the country!
Envy and Zain are rescued border collie siblings who stole our hearts with their photos hugging. Soon Trek, another border collie rescue pup joined the family and if you are like me, you can’t get enough of their cute faces and poses. If you like Tik Tok, be sure to follow them there, too.
Agador is another doggo from NYC and much like the rest of the city, he’s pretty stylish. He’s even known as the Bob Ross of dogs because of his fluffy curly hair. If you’re looking for a dog account to follow that will give you outfit inspiration for your own dog (or even yourself!), this is definitely the page for you. Plus, he has an adorable little brother!
If you are a dog lover, you have seen this adorable Border Collie named Momo. His owner takes photos of Momo exactly the same way in every photo on his Instagram page and I can’t get enough of it. There is a video showing a year of photos of Momo and if this doesn’t melt your heart, I don’t know what will. If you have young ones, you might want to check out Momo’s board book.
If you’re an adventurer or could just use a little more of the great outdoors on your Instagram feed, you’ll definitely want to give this husky mix Loki a follow. He even has his own line of dog food, how awesome is that?!
Maddie the Coonhound was the first dog account that I ever followed on Instagram. I was captivated by her squinty, goofy smile and her ability to pose on anything. She even has her own book, Maddie on Things.
How could you not love this sweet face?! Maya is a Samoyed that brings all of the cuddles, smiles, and floofiness one could ask for. She also has her own YouTube channel with almost 2 million subscribers where she does ASMR videos!
Whiskey the Vizsla is an energenic and photogenic adventure dog. If you love nature, too, you will enjoy watching Whiskey regularly go hiking, camping or canoeing in the mountains around Vancouver.
Weenie dog lovers unite! Louie and Teddy are two long-haired dachshunds that love the beach, cuddling with each other, and just overall being cute. This is a great dog Instagram account to follow if you’re a fan of wiener dogs.
Dogs + brunch?! Sign me all the way up. As a matter of fact, I can’t think of a better combination! Dogs Who Brunch is an account that features dogs posing with all of your brunch faves like waffles, eggs benedict, and of course, mimosas!
This all-American family is complete with its quintessential symbol: a golden retriever named Bennie. We don’t see much of Puffin the cat since Bennie came on the scene. Follow along to see Bennie on many adventures, such as exploring in the woods, going for rides in retro cars and snuggling by the fireplace.
Arguably one of the most popular dog Instagram accounts to follow, Doug is a pug that has celebrity friends such as Justin Bieber, David Dobrik, Shakira, and Demi Lovato. He also won a People’s Choice Award and was featured in TIME magazine. Is it sad to admit that this doggo is more famous than most of us will probably ever be? Maybe. Is he worth following on Instagram? Definitely.
Yes, I may have a thing for dogs that hug! Watson and Kiko are two brothers that roam this world spreading joy through every adventure they take in the beautiful outdoors. Watson is world’s best hugger, and I am there for it!
Bodhi is the self-proclaimed “most stylish dog in the world” and I can’t say I disagree. Bodhi is a Shiba Inu who lives in NYC and is always found rocking chic button downs, turtleneck sweaters, and even sunglasses. Now that’s one stylish dog.
Eddie is a Nova Scotia duck tolling retriever that loves the outdoors. If I didn’t have a Brittany Spaniel, I would want a duck toller. Eddie is very photogenic and each photo is a treat for any animal and nature lover.
While the Dogist isn’t your typical dog Instagram account, their page is worth checking out if you’re interested in reading stories about different dogs all over the world. They post every day and each post includes a blurb about the dog and what makes them so special. The Dogist also has a book that is a great gift for any dog lover.
Beau and I met the Dogist at an event, and he took photos of us. I will put those below for your viewing pleasure.
With a whopping 10.6 million followers, JiffPom is the most followed dog on Instagram and it’s no secret why. This Pomeranian always has perfectly groomed hair and an awesome collection of hoodies. Who wouldn’t want that on their Instagram feed?!
Boop My Nose doesn’t only feature pups, but it’s basically cuteness overload. They post a few times a day and all of their posts feature, well, noses. Yup, you read that right and yup, it’s totally worth a follow.
Aspen is a sweet Golden Retriever that is in love with adventure. Aspen’s owners chronicle all of his adventures where we can see him canoe, sled, and hike all over the place. I adore Aspen and I know you will want to follow along, too.
This is the dog account to follow if you need your heart to smile. Reagan is a doodle that looks like a real-life teddy bear! He also loves to cuddle his growing family which just makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Feeling down? Then Henry the Colorado dog and his mate Baloo are the perfect dog cat Instagram duo to follow on Instagram. We all need a good friend, and we all love watching Henry and Baloo enjoy the world together.
If there was an award for the most accurate Instagram handle, Tuna Melts My Heart would totally win because well, he does! Tuna, a Chiweenie from California, is also a pretty famous Instagram doggo. He has a huge following with over 2 million followers and even has his own travel account.
Do you like food and dogs? Well, Popeye the Foodie is the dog Instagram account to follow (and if you answered no to that question, you need to reevaluate your priorities. Just saying.). Popeye was rescued by his owners when they found him starving on the streets in LA and now Popeye is the opposite of starving to say the least. Popeye likes to dine at pet-friendly restaurants and hang out with his sister Penny.
Obviously I can’t omit my own sweet little fella Beau from this list of dog Instagram accounts to follow! He needs to post more frequently and I will work on that for you all! Beau loves snuggles and outdoor adventures the most.
There are a ton of dog accounts to follow out there with new ones popping up every day. You can usually find new dog Instagram accounts to follow by searching the hashtag #DogsofInstagram. And that’s the beauty of Instagram—you may not be able to get a pup in real life but you sure can look at cute ones on social media.
