Today, I’m sharing the best Baton Rouge Dogs You Should Follow On Instagram! And I even interviewed a few of them!

How old are you?

Gus: I am almost 11 months old. My birthday is December 4th.

What’s your favorite place to visit in Baton Rouge?

Gus: My favorite place is the BREC Burbank Dog Park, and I go there every day. However, when I want to change it up, I like to walk around LSU with my pawrents because I LOVE the Tigers!

Why/when did you start your Instagram account?

Gus: I started my account when I was just two months old to show my adventures, but it’s grown into so much more. I want my account to show my positive attitude, my fun personality along with some cool places and things. I love making people smile and I want my account to do that.

What type of things can we see you do on Instagram?

Gus: I like to keep my account interesting and always have fresh, diverse content for my followers. Here’s some things you can see in my Insta: tricks, my hot fresh wardrobe, my travels and adventures and my day-to-day life.

Anything else you want us to know about you?

Gus: I love posing for pictures and I get lots of treats when I do a good job! Playing fetch at the park is one of my favorite things to do. I may have short legs, but you would be surprised how fast I am. I always love meeting new people and exploring new places.

When/why did you start your Instagram account?

What type of things can we see you do on Instagram?

Apolleaux: I love to go on long walks and runs along the levee on the west side of LSU’s campus. I weekly post videos on my Instagram story of that.

I have pictures on my Instagram of me taking long nap and playing outside in my backyard!

Anything else you want us to know about you?

Apolleaux: A fun fact about me is that I’m super talkative! I don’t bark a lot, but I make weird noises when my parents talk to me!

Baton Rouge Dogs To Follow on Instagram - Celeste the Corgi

Meet Celeste Garza — another local corgi that makes the list! Her Instagram feed is full of portraits of her (mostly with her tongue out… and it’s adorable) playing outside and wearing her LSU bandana.

What type of dog are you?

Celeste: I’m a fun-loving-high-energy tri-color Corg who’s always on the go! Many people think my momma or poppa is a Weiner dog because of my smaller than average size and length/slender bod, but I’m pure 20lb Welsh Pembroke Corgi with the most majestic of tails ;)

How old are you?

Celeste: I turned one year old in April, and I made the most of it with my big brofur Roscoe, a 6-year-old Aussie mix. He’s in a few of my pics!

What’s your favorite place to visit in Baton Rouge?

Celeste: I’ve been out and about to many places in Baton Rouge, but by far my most favorite place IN THE WORLD is the BREC Burbank Dog Park! It’s sooooo spacious, and I can run and run and run and run and run! Did I mention I like to run? There are so many friendly puppos and hoomans there, and I get to meet with my best friends, Chuck, Peanut, Butter and Canon! You can find pics of us on our Facebook group page @BurbankCorgiClub. My dad helps manage the page and take pictures of me and my friends!

Why/when did you start your Instagram account?

Celeste: My Dad says it was his account at the beginning, but all he ever did was post pictures of me, so I had a heart-to heart talk with him, and we decided it really was always my incredible world, and I just want to share my memorable moments with everyone!

What type of things can we see you do on Instagram?

Celeste: I’m working on my agility moves, so expect some clips of that soon, and I’m always looking to explore new places in and around the area so keep an eye out for that as well! I’ll be visiting some iconic places in Baton Rouge and around LSU campus! I’m also looking to do some traveling soon to visit my Dad’s family in Texas!
