Instagram is a great place for not only sharing photos but for seeing some pretty good ones too (if you know where to look). And when I’m not busy picking the best filter to flatter Dexter’s giant eyes or Sawyer’s elongated body, I’m perusing my favourite dog Instagram accounts.
So here, in no particular order, are some of my favourites.
First up, @ifitwags
With over 140,000 followers, @ifitwags is run by Vancouver based Steph McCombie.
Great for: Beautiful and artsy shots of ‘The Pointer Brothers’ and some gorgeous landscapes thrown in for good measure
Sadly, since @HarlowandSage was started beautiful Sage has passed away. However, Harlow is joined by Indiana and Reese who all team up to make adorable videos and photos posted daily.
Great for: Hilarious and cute videos following the lives of these three adorable dogs. They even have their own book!
Next up in my favourite Instagram accounts: @dogsbestman
Run by Truls Bakken, @dogsbestman is steadily increasing in followers and even offers the option to buy prints of your favourite photographs!
Great for: Aesthetically pleasing shots of a wide range of dog breeds.
Last but certainly never least is @tunameltsmyheart
A long time Instagrammer, @tunameltsmyheart has amassed over 1million followers (yep, you read that right)! Far from being a food based account – as the name may suggest – the account actually followers the life of Tuna, a rescue chiweenie.
Great for: Lots of giggles and a few surprises as you manoeuvre your way through Tuna’s many expressions and marvel at the overbite that makes him both unusual and endearing
