Dogspotting is just that -- a Facebook group where people share photos of all the dogs they see. And it's just as pure as it sounds.
The group has 1.8 million members, all following one basic rule: don't post pictures of dogs you know personally, whether it's your own pup or one that you've seen before. Well, that and don't mention any cats. But you've probably realized that on your own.
And that's basically it. The free format guarantees you will see something different every day, offering everything from Newfoundlands sitting on the roof to Corgis in backpacks.
Continue scrolling and enjoy some of the best posts featured on the group so far.

My Friend Moved Into A New House And Right Around The Corner Was This Guy! We Saw A Tiny Hole With A Name Above And Figured It Was A Doggy Lookout, So We Called The Name And This Wee Face Popped Up His Owners Had Made A Space In The Fence For Him To Say Hi To People Walking Past
"Dogspotting is a game, sport, and lifestyle of spotting random dogs you encounter," the admins of the group wrote, encouraging people to post their own or known dogs in Dogspotting Society instead.
If you want to become a good dogspotter, you should also stay away from the so-called low hanging fruit -- dog and dogs in places you would expect to find them, for example, at the groomers and vets, in parks and stores, and so on.
Not Sure If They Saw Me
The most common type of posts are photo and video spots, but the admins also allow text spots (description of the who, what, when, and where of the dog you spotted) and art spots (artistic renderings of the "target").
However, if the subject is distressing or emotionally charged, don't post it. You won't find any politics, nail trimming, ear crops, adopt vs shop, or other similar topics on the group, too. "Keep in mind spotters do not have control over the dogs they spot.be respectful!" the admins added.

Our family was camping, when people pulled up beside us with their trailer and truck. after they got situated the lady popped over and seen our 4 dogs. she said she has some dogs with her as well, we asked “oh how many dogs do you have?” said said “19” and walked away. we all thought we heard wrong. i waited a bit and went over. below is what i found. all the dogs were so happy and healthy. i didn’t hear any of them bark and they went swimming everyday. (imagine watching 19 dogs swim, the old and small dogs stayed on her paddle board). best vacation.
