50 dog puns that are paw-sitively amazing

Ruff day? These funny dog puns will give you a new leash on life.

If you’re anything like us, you’re usually with your dog, talking about your dog, or looking at pictures of your dog (maybe even all at once). So, integrating some great dog puns into your day shouldn’t be much of a leap. And that’s a good thing, because puns make life more fun.

You can fully embrace your dog-lover persona with funny dog puns like, “What did the dog say to his shy friend? You never stand up for yourself! You just roll over.” Or maybe you want to go for a cute dog pun such as, “With all the pictures I take of my dog, I might as well be the pup-arazzi.”

If you’re especially keen on a specific breed, then you’re in luck. Some of the best dog puns are tailored to a particular type of dog, like, “The Dachshund had to sit in the shade because it was a hot dog.” Or, you can opt for a short pun when speaking directly to your dog, such as, “Bone appétit!”

Whatever dog puns you choose to use, they’re guaranteed to connect you with the right people (i.e. fellow dog lovers). Here are some of our favorite dog puns that you will have a ball reading.
