Meet 10 of the Most Adventurous Dogs on Instagram

Those daily shares in little squares have become something of an addiction for many of us. From trawling our Instagram feeds to find the latest in everything from fashion, food and furry friends, to endless filters to ensure the perfect Instagram snap, there’s no sign of Instagram’s influence dwindling any time soon.

And while for many of us, a walk to the park is about all the insta-inspo we can muster, there are a growing number of dogs who call the world their playground. After the popularity of our recent post on the world’s most adventurous cats, we thought it only right to shine a light on the mutts with a sense of wanderlust! From the three-legged dog with a thirst for action, to some of the most photogenic pups in town, we’ve selected 10 of our favourite adventure-loving dogs on Instagram. 

1.ODIE @pamthevan91

Odie is a Labradoodle cross and former rescue dog who now travels with his owner Pam and her van. While he doesn’t like swimming or being left alone, his pictures alone show his endless love for nature and a wide-eyed green whenever he’s in the great outdoors.
