When you’re chilling with your dog, you can’t help but think of what they think about all day. Do they have peanut butter treats, a rowdy game of fetch in the backyard, or a long nap on their mind? Do they look in the mirror and know it’s their own fluffy face looking back at them, or see you video chatting with a bestie and get totally confused? These dog point of view captions for Instagram or TikTok might help you see the world through their adorable puppy-dog eyes, and bring their personality to life on social media.

You might already have one of those cute (and arguably viral) accounts for your loyal golden retriever or energetic pug that documents what they do each day. Whether they’re sprawled out on a dog pool float on a sunny, summer afternoon or hanging out with the other pups in the neighborhood before dinner, you may post a pic or video of it to your feed. Along with a pretty straightforward caption like, “Treats, please," or "Went to the park with mom today!" you might put hashtags on your post, too. That way, it can not only get more views, but your pet can be a part of trends like #PetsOnTikTok, #ClingyPet, and #DogsReact.

That's all well and good, but you could totally rake in even more likes and comments with one of these funny dog point of view captions. They put you into your pup's world, for a paw-fectly hilarious time, and take those classic pet TikTok challenges and cute Instagram stories to the next level. Other than a healthy and happy pup, what more could you ask for?
