Best dog hashtags

 

Join a Community

Once you have picked out the best hashtags for your pup, you’ll want to find more related hashtags for their particular breed. Most dog breeds have their own community on Instagram and you absolutely should be a part of it! Use the search function in Instragram to look up your dog breed and search all the related hashtags. You’ll find dozens to hundreds of breed-specific hashtags that you can add to your posts. And make sure that you regularly engage with other accounts using those hashtags. By making some Insta-friends in your dog’s community you’ll be able to lean on each other for support and help each other reach Instagram fame.



Get Featured

One way you should be using your dog hashtags is to get featured on a larger account. Every niche on Instagram has its own feature accounts, meaning there are accounts that strictly feature other user’s photos as long as they are relevant to their theme. Find the big dog accounts and learn what hashtags they require you to use in order to get featured. There should be general dog accounts where any type of dog can be featured and there are probably breed-specific accounts you can get featured on as well. Do your research to find these and work hard at getting featured. If you’re successful, your post will be seen by thousands, maybe even millions, of Instagram users who could turn into a loyal fan of your pup.
