The holiday season is always a special time of the year, but it's even better when you get to celebrate Christmas with your pup. It's no secret that your furry four-legged friend deserves some particularly special gifts this Christmas. You'll snap a ton of adorable photos with your dog for the 'Gram — dressed up in their festive best and surrounded by a ton of presents, of course — so here are some Christmas dog captions for Instagram that are pawsitively perfect for your holiday post.

Let's be real: Your fur baby may not know why Christmas Day is different from any other day throughout the year, but that doesn't mean that they can't live it up with you. Stuff their stocking with treats and toys to let them know what a joyous day it really is. Let them run around in the snow, and maybe sneak them a few extra treats or some leftovers from the Christmas roast, because they've been a good pup all year long. Plus, they might even love to open a gift or two.

At the end of the day, you and your doggo can curl up by the fireplace and watch a Christmas movie as you post these cute dog Christmas quotes for your followers. You'll have a mug of eggnog in hand, and your pup will be munching on festive dog cookies, which you’ll definitely need to share with an adorable photo and the perfect dog Christmas caption. You can celebrate the wonderful year you've had together, and look forward to many more to come. So snuggle up with your furry friend this Christmas, and don’t forget the matching sweaters!
