We recently discussed our favorite dog-centric podcasts, but some people are visual learners. Whether you need advice on dog training or healthcare, running a breeding business or just want to watch some cute puppies frolic around, YouTube is a valuable resource. There are thousands of dog YouTube channels but unfortunately, a massive amount of them are low quality and provide little value. 

It’s time consuming to wade through the endless number of channels, so we’ve gathered our favorite dog YouTubers. We’ve divided the list between breeder-related dog Youtube channels, dog training channels and dog healthcare channels. And of course, because we can’t resist a good canine-induced laugh, we’ve included three of our favorite silly dog Youtube channels too!
