Social media can get competitive and stressful, especially in the hustle and bustle of today’s world. Luckily, though, not every account out there is doomed to bring you down. How, exactly? These adorable accounts of dogs on Twitter. Yep, dogs are social media stars now, too.

I pet Malachi. He is a 5 year old Therapy Dog. Malachi goes to schools to comfort kids who are feeling anxious or having a hard day. He loves kids so much, he can tell when they are upset and need him. He lies next to them or sits in their lap. Malachi makes everyone feel better. pic.twitter.com/hKgzknbYVa

Yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like, and yes, it’s even more amazing than you think. This wholesome account is run by 12-year-old Gideon, who, despite his age, has already made a huge mark in the world of Dog Twitter. On his account, you’ll find frequent photos of Gideon smiling alongside each dog he meets, accompanied by a short bio or fun fact about the pup. You’ll be scrolling — and smiling — for hours.
According to the FAQs on his website, Gideon has petted over 1,200 dogs in the last four years, which is as long as his account has been active. He has even petted 387 virtual dogs because not even the pandemic will stop this canine hero. Don’t worry; it’s all supervised by his mom!
Oh c’mon. We only rate dogs. This is a baby hippo just trying to enjoy his mud bath. Please send dogs. Thank you… 13/10 pic.twitter.com/1ja6p8xWC5

If you like your dog pictures with a dash of humor, you’ve come to the right account. This page features new pup pictures every day, with a silly caption and rating to match. Each photo is rated by the anonymous account owner with a score out of 10, and (spoiler alert!) every dog so far has scored more than 10.
On this page, you’ll find pit bulls, poodles, and every other breed you can imagine. The account frequently spotlights newsworthy pets, such as Bobo, the 22-year-old Chihuahua, as well as user-submitted photos — so message them a photo of your pet while you’re browsing!

This adorable page is just dogs — nothing else. There is, as the name implies, zero context given in any of these posts, only photos and videos of dogs being silly, cute, or just plain weird. In just a few scrolls, you’ll find reposted TikToks of hilarious pups, photos of doggie haircuts gone wrong, and oh-so-much more.
If you expect just a smile while visiting this profile, raise your expectations. Before you know it, you’ll be laughing out loud and begging for more. You can scroll in peace for hours if you want. And with this many adorably random pups, you’ll want to.

Although not doggie exclusive, The Pet Collective is an adorable, relatable account that features pets of all species. From silly cats and dogs to unlikely farm animal friends, you can find it on this page. Even if you’re a dog-only person, there are plenty of pup videos on this profile to help you get your fix.
On its website, The Pet Collective describes itself as “a playground that promotes joyful moments … for the spoiling, nurturing, and whole-heartedly pet-obsessed,” and from a pet lover’s perspective, we couldn’t agree more. The collective accepts video submissions from users, so you know everything you see on the page is as authentic as it is adorable.
