Dogs Of Digital

We don’t hide the fact we’re dog mad.  But, it seems we’re not the only ones, as last year we saw a huge boom in the number of famous pooches to grace our screens.

So to help us get through the January blues, we thought it would be a great idea to share our top 15 Dogs of Digital.

Narrowing it down to the top 15 was quite a struggle as there are so many cute canines online; so we rated each dog for creativity, personality, branding and popularity. We weren’t too scientific with this if we’re honest, they were purely subjective ratings based on being an office full of dog lovers. It’s a bit of January fun after all 😊

Dogs that scored highly in creativity showed, well, a creative aspect to their photos and social media. They were innovative and didn’t show the same shots, making sure they kept their content fresh and fun.

Personality was based on whether or not we got a feel for the personality of the dog through their photos. We all know how dogs can have big personalities, and we were looking for this to be reflected in their photos and videos.

Branding was based on how well the dogs had capitalised on their new found fame. Did they have a book, by any chance? Or a series of t-shirts? Those that did, scored highly.

Popularity was an easy one, as we ranked the dogs on how big their community sizes were across all the platforms, not only Instagram, but Twitter and Facebook too.
