10 dog Instagram accounts to follow in 2019

Whether you want to follow dogs on their travel adventures or see cute photos of hounds snuggled up by the fireplace at home, there are all kinds of fantastic dog Instagram accounts available to follow.

#pupsquad #whywontyouplaywithme #wheresmyball…

These are all great hashtags you can use to find exceedingly adorable pups, but, to save you scrolling through social media for hours on end (trust us, it’s easy to get lost amongst all the loveable doggos!), we’ve gathered together a few of the top UK #dogstagram accounts out there.

So here are our ten favourites to follow in 2019: from a tiny dachshund, to a sassy Staffy, via our very own Canine Critic dog-friendly cottage reviewer…

Hey, you know what's more fun than posing on a log for photos? (swipe --->) Stealing treats right out of's mum's hand whilst she's not watching πŸ™Š Loki has been in her @Ruffwear Front Range Harness and Vert Jacket all weekend, and so far she gives them both a solid 10/10 πŸ’›And although she wasn't entirely sure about @jasper.wolfnoodle referring to the Vert jacket as her "cape", she has decided that she is totally epic enough to rock a cape, and will henceforth also refer to it as her cape 🀘 It's the start of a super busy week for the firefox, and we're especially excited because we're heading up to Scotland again on Friday! Woohoo! What are your plans for the week?

What to expect: Maybe it’s those little legs or that fabulous moustache-like muzzle, but this little dog knows his place, and it’s above you. Expect photos of the aptly-named Harris sat on the highest spot he can find in order to survey the world views around him. β›°

Freddy @freddy_merlecury

View this post on Instagram

2018 has been a crazy year for us! Through Instagram, we’ve met so many amazing people and we’ve worked with some amazing companies I never would have had the opportunity to work with before. . My 2019 resolution is to be able to meet some of my instagram friends, which have actually become some of my closest friends in life. I also want to explore the world more with Freddy and maybe go up a few grades in agility? And fingers crossed we can compete at @crufts one day 🀞🏼 I’m also hoping to qualify to become a dog groomer in early 2019 and hopefully kick start my life long career with dogs! . What’s your 2019 resolution? #WHPresolutions2019
