Sometimes, the hardest part of the day is saying goodbye to your dog in the morning. When you get out of the shower, they are hogging up the bathmat because they don’t want to be too far from you. While you brush your teeth, they flop around on your bed hoping that you will give them an extra treat for breakfast. When you finish your coffee, they are staring at the cabinet where you keep the ball chucker. Tragically, it’s a workday, and you have to leave them behind so you can make a living for the both of you.

But your pooches don’t spend their day just waiting around. Oh no, while you are gone they go on walks with friends and see the place where you live in a way most of us never get to.

Here are the best dog-walker Instagrams that let you see through the eyes of 11 pooches while their parents are at work.
