A good laugh is the best way to relieve stress, reduce conflict, ease pain and improve moods. The individual benefits aside laughter is infectious! Few things are universally more comical than dogs caught on tape. From Hollywood to Madison Avenue and especially in a pet owner’s backyard, dogs provide a limitless supply of sidesplitting humor.
I offer this list in no particular order.
18 Funniest Dog Videos
SECTION 1 — ADVERTISING: Dogs were the original supermodels. Even Marilyn Monroe was upstaged by a beautiful dog! Today dogs are used to promote everything from automobiles to beer to underwear. Some of the creative commercial efforts are among the funniest dog videos ever.
Beautiful Hair Comes Naturally

An automatic floor sweeper gets put to the ultimate test by this Australian shepherd. I wager you won’t forget the product when you finish laughing at the outcome (no pun intended).

I would argue they remain the most entertaining, as evidenced by the following amateur videos.
Singing Basset Hound
This basset hound may not win a “golden ticket” to Hollywood, but he belts the tune out with more heart and soul than most American Idols, plus he makes the audition very amusing!
Ultimate Dog Tease
The amateur video of this bacon-loving German shepherd went viral in minutes. YouTube has recorded more than 103 million hits so far on this clip.
Laughing Baby in Tub Teases a Dachshund
W.C. Fields once said, “Never work with animals or children.” The statement was less about Field’s fondness, or lack thereof, of animals or children.
