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.
A+ for being too cute, Duke.
Meanwhile, Duke’s brother Boomer embraced his natural instincts while training to be a water rescue dog.
CH Cajun + Rainsway’s Razzle Dazzle takes BEST OF BREED day one of Oklahoma City💛💜💛💜 No words can describe the feeling when the day comes that the judge finds your next generation, over your current special! This litter sure is growing up, 23 months old now. 10 months ago, Razz’s brother (my Reese’s) won the Canadian National over their beautiful mom Rumor. So proud of these brothers, and excited for their futures! Thank you so much Ashlie Whitmore for handling our Razz to his first BOB over top specials!
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.
🎬 Hi everyone! We had a great frisbee weekend with lots of fun! Here's one minute from our freestyle. We did much better this time 😃. Styx and mom did great! Have a great week! – ✏ Loki . #novascotiaducktollingretriever #tollerpower #freestyle #frisbee #discdog #routine #proudofmydog #mansbestfriend #teamwork #happydog #dog #toller
Naturally, Loki and Styx are both talented swimmers and retrievers…it’s in their blood!
Dear weather, stop showing off… We know u’re HOT! 🌞 – We wish you all a great Friday and a pawsome weekend! Stay cool, stay wet! 💙 – ✏ Loki & Styx . #novascotiaducktollingretrievers #tollers #wetdogs #happydogs #swimmingisfun #hotdays #summerfeelings #dogs #honden #dogstagram #instagramdogs #zwemmen
She’s also an expert kayaker.
I'm flying, hooman! I jump, you jump, okay? OK BYEEE. We went kayaking in Banff yesterday and she decided to jump into the water for a swim, and when she clambered back on, she was shivering and whining. This little dufus. I watched Titanic for that caption. The saddest part is when the 3rd class woman puts her kids to sleep rather than try to get on the boats 😭
And when given a treat, she can offer up a great “paw.”
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?
