Barking Up the Right Tree: Hilarious Ways Dogs Look Like Their Owners

In a world where dogs and humans coexist, it's no secret that the bond between them is as tight as a leash on a squirrel-chasing spree. But have you ever noticed that dogs sometimes bear a striking resemblance to their human counterparts?

We’re coining the term Doggelganger, because for some strange reason, over time, we all start to look like our dogs! The hairstyle, the eyes, the body shape, whatever it is, we start to morph into our furry best friend!

Known scientifically as the “Mere exposure effect,” the jury is still out as to whether we knowingly seek out pups that look like us, or if we are completely oblivious to our narcissistic tendencies, no doubt I’ll start looking like a wine bottle soon with the amount of exposure I’ve had to since becoming a parent!

It's a phenomenon that's got tails wagging and tongues lolling with amusement, and we're about to dig up the funniest dirt (and images) on this howlingly hilarious subject!

The Hair-tastic Duo:
First on our list is the classic hair match-up. If you've ever seen a hipster sporting a man bun while his Poodle struts around with an elegant topknot, you know exactly what I mean. It's as if they're saying, "Look, our locks are equally fabulous, and we're not afraid to flaunt it!"

When you start to look like your dog

The Snackmasters:
Does your friend have a bit of a "snack-loving" reputation? Well, if you spot them walking a Labrador Retriever, there's a good chance you've uncovered their secret snacking society. These dynamic duos are the kings and queens of all-you-can-eat buffets, whether it's dog biscuits or double cheeseburgers. And when it comes to begging, they've got the puppy-dog eyes down pat!
We had to share this hilarious video from @strangeincident of this adorable Frenchy eating with his dad 🤣❤️


The Yoga Enthusiasts:
Oh, you've seen them in the park – the zen masters practicing their downward dog next to their actual canine downward dog. Coincidence? I think not. These duos have mastered the art of relaxation, and they're not afraid to stretch their legs (and paws) to find their inner calm. How adorbs is this dog going yoga, definitely the kind of exercise class I would attend.



The Fashionistas:
If you've ever wondered why that woman in the sunglasses and fur coat looks eerily similar to her fluffy Bichon Frise, it's because they share more than just a wardrobe. These pairs are trendsetters, making a statement with their matching outfits and impeccable grooming routines. And let's not forget about the dog-sized sunglasses – because squinting in style is a family affair! Who wouldn't want to match this adorable outfit?

The Sleepyheads:
You know the feeling when you wake up after a long night's sleep and your hair is a mess? Well, if you've got a neighbor with bedhead strolling alongside a Shih Tzu, rest assured that they're part of the "I woke up like this" club. These twosomes value comfort above all else and aren't afraid to hit the snooze button a few extra times. Who needs a fancy hairbrush when your dog's fur is your best accessory?



In conclusion, the saying "like owner, like dog" holds more truth than you might think. From fashion choices to personality quirks, the similarities between our four-legged friends and ourselves are as undeniable as a wagging tail when the treat jar comes out. So, next time you're out for a stroll and you spot a pair that seems just a little too perfect, remember – it's not just a coincidence. It's a hilarious display of how dogs and their owners are truly two peas in a quirky, furry pod!

If you’re in a Doggelganger relationship with your pooch feel free to share your doggie pics with us!

Say I love you to your four-legged bestie with our funny selection of gifts for dogs.
