Just as with Batman and Robin or Wallace and Gromit, you rarely find a farmer without their dog bounding by their side or drooling all over the window of the truck.
Farm dogs are the best dogs, bar none. To celebrate the brilliant diversity in breed, shape and size of the furry farm companions we all have a soft spot for, here are seven farm dog Instagram accounts you need to follow.
While you’re lapping up farm dog photos, be sure to take a moment to check out Farmers Weekly‘s Instagram page and follow us for loads of great photos.
You can also view our Instagram story to see more of what we get up to while we’re out and about meeting farmers from across the UK.
Alfie the Jack Russell Terrier
Meet Alfie, a scruffy Jack Russell Terrier who lives on an arable farm in Nottinghamshire. He loves running off with cricket balls and can be a bit of a troublemaker at times.

Walter the Parsons Terrier
Walter is another naughty terrier from a farm in Oxfordshire. He gets very excited when he’s near chickens, cats, cattle, sheep, tractors, cars, lorries…
I’m in a *bit* of trouble tonight. The farmer had a phone call 5 minutes ago to say I was chasing two cats round and round the garden of the chap who works for him (who doesn’t like me very much). Unfortunately I was also returned home by one of the people who live over the main road last night, so I’m not looking good. #farmdog #farmlife #countrylife #parsonsterrier #farming #dogsofinstagram #dogs #parsonrussellterrier #naughtydog
Benson the Golden Retriever
This cute little lad is Benson, an adorable golden retriever puppy who lives on a farm in Northern Ireland. Looks like he can be tricky to keep clean.
Aussie the Australian Shepherd
This six year old Australian Shepherd is aptly called Aussie. Just to confuse you, he’s actually American and lives on a farm in Southern Missouri.
Nelson the Border collie
Nelson, Nell for short, is a two-year-old Border Collie who’s and is a bit of a poser. He’s named after Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson.
Callie the Australian cattle dog (and company)
Callie is a four-year-old Australian cattle dog from New South Wales Australia. She shares her Instagram account with Mick the three-year-old kelpie and the puppies.
Prince the English springer spaniel
Meet Prince, a one-year-old English springer spaniel who has always got his tongue hanging out. He like sitting in stubble fields, even if it isn’t the most comfortable place in the world for a sit down.
