dog stars of instagram

The dog stars of Instagram aren’t shy when it comes to showing off their impressive talents. This week, our favorite Internet canines flaunted their life-saving abilities, jumping prowess, and much more.

If unbelievable adorableness was a skill, the Newfoundlands of @mollythenewfie would be experts at it. Just take a look at little Duke here.

You’re home early…. #tbt

A+ for being too cute, Duke.

Meanwhile, Duke’s brother Boomer embraced his natural instincts while training to be a water rescue dog.

The Clumber Spaniels of @Rainswayclumbers are exploding with talent. Take Mr. Razzle, for example. He just won Best of Breed at a conformation competition in Oklahoma. Way to go, Razzle!

Another Clumber Spaniel skill? Catching alligators, apparently! Clumbers are known for their hunting abilities, after all, but we don’t think this particular prey was that difficult to trap…

Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers are affectionate, intelligent, and outgoing — and they’ll follow you to the ends of the earth, especially if you’re working with them. Loki and Styx are no exception. Take a look at Styx’s frisbee skills.

Naturally, Loki and Styx are both talented swimmers and retrievers…it’s in their blood!

What about Kaia the Pembroke Welsh Corgi? Well, like many Corgis (especially the ones on Instagram), Kaia is a photo superstar with a great personality.

She’s also an expert kayaker.

And when given a treat, she can offer up a great “paw.”

Last but not least, these Cavalier King Charles Spaniels may be small, but boy can they fly. Lexi is certainly an agility star. Look at her go!

Cavs are also great…guard dogs? Well, at least Lexi and Allan are. They love their family and need to make sure anyone who enters into their kingdom is worthy. Can you blame ’em?

Guarding ”my” garden 👊🏻💂🏻‍♀️
