We live in an age where a video of a dog jumping over a fence will get more views than the budget, and with the political landscape as it is today, I think that is actually somewhat justified. Social media, new technologies and the togetherness of the internet has transformed the way we live, to the point where I’ve watched a funny dog video before I even get out of bed most mornings, and I couldn’t be happier about it!
Whether you’re having a bad day, the dark nights and shorter days are taking their toll, or you just fancy a laugh with our favourite four-legged friends (sorry not sorry cats), I’ve put together ten of the funniest dog videos of all time. Some of these are old time classics that have gone viral time and time again, while others you might not recognise, but are just videos that have resonated with me over the years. Either way, I hope you enjoy…
‘JESUS CHRIST IN RICHMOND PARK: ORIGINAL UPLOAD’
An all-time favourite with both young and old, there’s something hilarious about this video but I just can’t put my finger on what it is. I think a combination of the lack of cares from Fenton, the ‘Jesus Christs’ from the owner and his little run at the end, as if he’s going to be get anywhere close to the sprinting herd of deer. Fenton now has official merchandise available to buy via his website, who’s the real winner?
‘Talking dog very funny’
I remember this as one of the pioneers in dog videos on Youtube, a classic by all accounts, but that doesn’t make it any less funny. An inspired commentary, an expressive dog and perfect timing all contribute to a highly-entertaining watch that will keep you chuckling for weeks afterward. Who came up with the idea? Not a clue. We won’t question how…
‘Dog Jumps Fence to Get to Beach’
A popular choice in the world of memes, the way this dog flies through the air is priceless, and often used to alongside text such as ‘when bae has garlic bread’ type of videos.
‘Hilarious Golden Retriever Really Wants To Race…But First Things First…’
This video absolutely kills me, and I feel like the golden retriever is a voice for what all the other dogs are thinking and wanting to do. Leading the way in this doggo revolution, the dog couldn’t care less, falling at almost every hurdle, distracted by food, toys and nearly anything else in between him/her and the owner. Anyone who procrastinates can relate to this greedy golden retriever, as can serial diet starters, who find themselves faltering at the first sign of a beige carb.
‘Denver Official Guilty Dog Video’
Guilty dog videos are plentiful on the online sphere, and each one will never fail to cheer me up. Their reactions are just too funny! Denver is a big name when it comes to the guilty dog video community, and the fact that its kitty treats that he broke into only makes it funnier!
Short and sweet, but the authenticity of this smile is just TOO much. It’s such a goofy/adorable smile, and is ultimate snapchat story goals.
‘Dog PLAYS DEAD To Avoid Going Home While Park Crowd Watches’
I mean, can you blame him? I know I’d be pretty mad if I was having a wild time on the swings, plucking up the courage to tackle the fireman’s pole when some swine tries to drag me home. I love how big the audience is as well, such a crowd-pleaser.
‘Dog Gets Carried Up Escalator’
Golden retrievers feature time and time again on this list, which must make them one of the funniest, sassiest large breeds there are. This one decided that the escalator was far too dangerous for him to step onto, and that the only possible option was to jump into the arms of a willing owner.
‘Pitbull balloon party’
I’ve shared this before, but it deserves every watch it gets. Who knew a balloon could make dogs so happy!? This could keep those pooches entertained for hours, and, on some of the jumps, they get some serious air. Maybe some kind of pitbull beach volleyball will be the next doggo sport to take off?
‘Dog Not Impressed By Owners Bowling Skills’
Finally we have probably the funniest dog face I ever did see, and the fact that it seems to be in reaction to some awful wii bowling skills makes it all the better! Another classic video that I am forever thankful was captured.
I actually found this quite difficult, and I’m sure I’ve left some out. Have I missed your favourite? Leave a link in the comments so I can check them out!
