If you’re a dog lover and you haven’t yet heard of The Dogist, then you’re in for a treat. A doggy treat as it were, no not that kind.

The Dogist was started back in 2013 by photographer Elias Weiss, Weiss imagined a kind of dog version of street fashion photo blog the Sartorialist, and initially took photos of dogs in New York City. Weiss has since traveled across the states and the world and visited over 30 cities to take photos of their dogs too.

But he’s mainly based in NYC where he photographs the great and the good, the canines he sees strutting on the sidewalk that impressive him enough to want to snap them. He then posts the results to his Instagram @thedogist and also collated the best ones into a book, which came out last year.

Weiss also had a short doc made about him recently (see video above) and is close to hitting two million followers on Instagram, so he must be doing something right.

If you’re wondering how he picks what dogs to photograph, in case say you wanted your own mutt to appear on his page, the Guardian explains:

In a city teeming with dogs, he chooses to photograph dogs that stand out to him in some way – say, an interesting fur marking or a silly outfit. He logs each dog’s name, breed and age in his phone with a voice memo – Simon, norwich terrier, two – and doesn’t post a photo at the time he takes it in an attempt to stagger dog breeds and moods. And though he visits shelters often to take photos of adoptable dogs, he’ll never post them all at once, lest people get “compassion fatigue”.

Check out some of the dogs below and head to The Dogist for many, many more.
