If you are looking for dozens upon dozens of hashtags to use on Instagram for your dog account, look no further. I’ve compiled a list of some of the top performing, most used, and breed specific dog hashtags on the platform. Now one thing to remember is that you want to keep the hashtags related to the post. So if you are shooting indoors, don’t use your hiking hashtag set.

Instagram only allows 30 hashtags per post and you can do these in the caption or as the first comment. Many people I have spoken to haven’t noticed a difference regardless of where they go so the location is totally up to you. The hashtags on each list can easily be copy and pasted. You can use the entire set or mix up a few sets. I aim to only use around 25-29 hashtags just to not go over but that is also entirely up to you.

Scroll to the bottom to find some breed specific hashtags. I’ll be doing a post specifically on this in the future. If many are interested, I’ll make that post sooner rather than later for you all.

Adventure Dog Hashtags

I’m totally big into hiking with my dogs and occasionally camp with them as well so these are ones I tend to use frequently but try to keep the variety up so I don’t look spammy to the algorithm.

#dogsthathike #hikingdogsofinsta#livelifeoffleash #dogphotography#bestwoof#LiveYourAdventure #CaliforniaDogs #Roamfree #AlwaysAdventuring#travellingwithadog#dogsonadventure #backcountrypaws#ExploringWithDogs#wildvisuals# #Adventuredogs#dog_features #mydogismy#outdoorswithdogs #excellent_dogs #adventureanywhere #dogportrait #topdogphoto #houndandlife #delight_pets #campingwithdogs #dogsonadventures #ventureout #a_dogsworld #dogsearth

This hashtag set all have under 500k posts. The lower the posts, the easier it is for your to rank as a smaller account. This will help you to be found and get more likes/comments and even follows.

Top Dog Hashtags

These sets of hashtags are the best of the best in the fact that they are highly searched. Each of these hashtags has over 1 million photos to them. Highly saturated? Yes. Highly Searched? Also yes.

Dog Mom & Dog Dad Hashtags

I absolutely love seeing photos of dogs with their owners and will pick and choose a few of these to look at daily on instagram and engage with. I might not often be in photos with my dogs and that needs to change. Still, I love seeing photos with dog moms and dog dads too!

Top Hashtags for German Shepherds

Find Hashtags

When looking for hashtags to use, I recommend checking the explore page. Seeing the posts that make it there and looking at the hashtags the accounts are using. Take them and create a list on your notepad on your phone. Being able to see them and see how many times the same ones are used among different accounts will help you to see which ones are used often. This can also help you to see which ones might get your to rank. Especially helpful if your posts are similar to any photos that make it to the explore page.

Of course you don’t want to use #doodle or #labrador if you are posting a photo of your German Shepherd. Nobody will engage and then the Instagram algorithm won’t likely push that image to others. This is because Instagram likes to push content to those who see it and engage. If everyone scrolls past it without engaging, that’s not going to help your account.

Where to Put Them & Maximum Amount to Use

Instagram allows you to use up to 30 hashtags. You can put them in either your caption or immediately after you post as the first comment. Be ready to post immediately after though if you opt to put them as the first comment.

Another thing to note is to not change/edit your post or delete the hashtags within the first 12 hours of posting. This will cause your post to tank. This is due to the fact that Instagram will then update the post on the server.

Best Tools to Use

The main tools I use are display purposes for finding hashtags and www.hashtagshuffle.com for getting up to 30 chosen to add to my post. I can input up to 300 hashtags and it’ll select 30 for me. I can always opt for under 30 too. These websites can help even if you aren’t in the dog niche.
