7 fantastic farm dogs to follow on Instagram

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.
