Managing your pets instagram account can be exhausting! Sure not all of us can be @marniethedog or @itsdougthepug with crazy numbers over 2 million followers! 

Sometimes simple is good too, and even us small time dog instagram accounts could use a little careful planning and thought. Listen, not only do we need to post the cutest pictures for all our followers, but we need to think about what our followers want to see and when they want to see it. 

A lot of people use instagram schedulers, like ReadyPulse or Hootsuite. Both sites allow you to schedule posts for the future and to post them even when you're not glued to your phone!

For the rest of us, who aren't using programs to bolster our dog instagram numbers, its good to know the best times to post pics to your pets instagram account. Studies have shown that the best engagement (in this case likes and comments) can be found at 5:00pm and 2:00Am.

Why such weirdly specific times for successfully  posting to your dogs instagram account? In a recent article with the HuffPost, Latergramme founder Matt Smith offered a theory: “We think this is because less people are posting at that time and that more engaged users are using Instagram at that time.” You may have already guessed, but 5 PM seems to make sense because it’s the time most people are wrapping up at work and possibly procrastinating on social media before they go home for the day."

Latergramme did some tests and here are some of the best times to post to your pets instagram throughout the week to get the best engagement.

Monday: 7pm and 10pm Tuesday: 3am and 10pm Wednesday: 5pm Thursday: 7am and 11pm Friday: 1am and 8pm Saturday: 12am and 2am Sunday: 5pm

Now more than likely Momo's not staying up till 3am just to post on her instagram account. That's why post management sites like ReadyPulse or Hootsuite can be helpful to instagram pet accounts!

Furthermore, not all days are created equal. In a Latergramme study Wednesday was the best day to post to your pets instagram account! The average engagement for a Wednesday post was 4.9 percept compared to the horribly low 4.4 percent engagement on monday.

Conclusion. Sometimes its better just to have fun with your dogs instagram account! We dont need to be famous animals to enjoy posting on instagram and there are so many fun and beautiful people on there just waiting for you pets awesome instagram post!
