The age-old fray stands – you get dog people, and you get cat people. We, proudly, are the former and will stop at nothing to get ourselves in front of the friendly, wagging slobberers. Lucky for us (and the Internet), dog photography has picked up dramatically in the past couple of years, and with it a string of creative pet owners and photo curators. Instagram itself has taken a giant pounce towards supporting furry models with their #WeeklyFluff insert every Monday, and with hashtags like “dog” and “dogsofinstagram” reaching over a hundred million tags, it’s no wonder every dog and his human are getting dressed up for the occasion.
With such a rise in well-timed pooch photography, our quest for the top doggie Instagram accounts began. Believe me, it was tough to narrow it down to only 25 accounts, so if you feel we missed some important ones, please share them in the comments below.
