The Pet Collective

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.
