Funny Dog Accounts on Instagram

There are plenty of funny dog accounts on Instagram, we tried to pick the ones that are genuinely funny not dressed up or otherwise solely to be funny (which we are not commenting on) but dogs enjoying themselves and therefore are amusing to us and others.

@hey.dogs describes themselves as a daily source of happiness which is true.  They collect funny dog photos and repost many of them but it worth a follow.

@paulmcpug we know it is not cool to fat shame but the humor is partially related to this Pug’s enormous size.

@kingmajesty_and_Princessrose quoted in their dog Instagram bio as “extremely cute and funny” which fits the bill.  Tons of funny reels of an English Bulldog doing funny things.  My dog would object for sure but he seems perfectly happy.

@everything.olive_  this account has adorable photography and will provide some cute inspiration to any aspiring dogfluencer.

@riley.unlikely described in his dog Instagram bio as a “daily dose of derps” and the account holds true to this for sure.


@charleston_the_chewookie these two Brussels Griffon are just funny their expressions make the account one to follow since who does not like an adorable dog beard?

@dougthepug needs no introduction and we have really tried to focus on up and coming dogfluencers that are truly funny but you cannot write a post about funny dog accounts without him and his dog massages.  Find more dogfluencers and test your dogfluencer knowledge in our Dogfluencer Quiz!

@brodiethatdood has the most perfect bio “Your local serotonin dealer” and it is true, this is truly an funny dog with many funny hairstyles.  This doodle causes us to understand the Doodle craze a bit more.

@waffles_xp is just a fun Great Dane.  We love Great Danes so one had to make the list and Waffles does and not solely for the summer fashion glasses that he is sporting that we discussed in out article on Summer Dog Accessories You Need Now.
