Ten London dogs doing Instagram better than you

Written by

Whether you stare at the beagle on your morning commute or stalk your neighbour's shih tzu on their Saturday morning walk, us city folk can’t get enough of dogs. But as overbearing landlords and a lack of outdoor space make it tough to own a pet in London, we have to make do with trawling corgi gifs every lunch break instead.

To fulfil every poochy urge until you have a pup of your own, here are the ten canines from across the capital that you should follow pronto.

1. @busterthespaniel

He’s cute and already cooler than most of us – Buster’s recently cosied up with celeb pals including Perrie from Little Mix and original Spice Girl Emma Bunton.

Half cavalier, half westie, with ears to rival Yoda's, Poppy is a real cutie.  And judging from his 'Gram, he seems to love the pub as much as we do.

As sweet as the dessert topping he’s named after, Mr Custard is the quintessential London gent who loves modelling, picnics and long walks in the countryside.

Corgis: the breed of choice of the monarchy. Although he missed the cut for Buckingham Palace, Winstone Pembroke aka Winny is Instagram royalty thanks to his talented photographer owner.

He’s got the perfect 'bed head' look you can only dream of, and wears Barbour coats in beer gardens. Did I also mention he’s a dog?

Remember your mum’s warning that your face would stay like that if you stuck your tongue out? Someone should have told the fashion-obsessed Suki.

What’s better than a pug? A pug in clothes, duh. Check out the sartorial Ari, whose style game could put a few humans to shame.

Tests to prove that Arne Jacobson isn’t actually just a cuddly toy come to life have come back inconclusive. Either way, he's adorable – and his 10k+ followers would agree.

That face. Those eyes. The teeny, tiny paws. Need I say more?

When just one pup isn’t enough, this professional pooch walker delivers on every end of the dog spectrum. He's also the proud owner of Bubbles the rottweiler – a smiley pack leader who's happiest when he's keeping other dogs in check.
