Ah, YouTube, the for cat videos. But, we're dog people here, right? Fortunately, from serious to silly, YouTube has videos for us, too. The best YouTube channels for dog lovers include videos that will teach you how to care for your dog, prepare food for him and (of course) hilarious videos of dogs performing funny stunts.
While YouTube is a great entertainment tool for wasting time on a rainy Saturday afternoon, it can also be very educational. If you know which channels to watch, you can find useful information from experts on every subject from dog grooming to training.
As with any information that you get on the internet, you need to be sure that your YouTube sources are credible if you're going to be taking advice from them. But, most of the time we just watch YouTube channels to brighten our spirits on a rough day or to share funny videos on our friends' Facebook pages.
Whether you're there to learn or just for a laugh, YouTube is sure to have a video or two (or 100) that will meet your needs. These 20 channels are designed for dog lovers, and they offer a little bit of everything dog-related. Which one is your favorite?
