Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there, including dog mamas! Mother’s Day this year falls on May 12th and serves as a time to celebrate all types of moms. Whether it’s a human or a doggy mom, all moms deserve to be honored on this special day.

Mama dogs have an important role in making sure their puppies get all the love they need and learn the skills necessary in order to grow up into proper, socialized dogs.

Here are ten videos of mama dogs and their puppies that show how truly special their relationships and bonds are.

1. Puppy Pile With Mom

This Golden Retriever mom has definitely got her paws full. She and her nine puppies are playing in the snow, but it seems the puppies are more interested in their mama than the actual snow, itself.

They all keep ganging up on mom, playfully attacking her as they expect her to play with them. The result is a puppy pile up, of course. But really, would you mind being attacked by nine Golden Retriever puppies?

2. Mom Watches Over Puppies

This mom is keeping a watchful eye over her puppies. It’s their first time playing outside, so mom wants to be extra careful.

As the puppies wrestle with each other, mom is there to make sure everything runs smoothly, as moms do. She has to make sure her puppies behave themselves. It’s just another day in the life of a dog mom.

3. Puppy Uses Mom’s Ear As Blanket

This puppy is cold, so obviously the solution to her problem is to use her mom’s ear as a blanket. The pup is going to grow up to be one smart dog because she’s already figured out a creative way to get warm.

It’s adorable how the mother doesn’t move and lets her puppy warm up. Moms will do anything to make sure their puppies are happy and comfortable.

4. Puppy Learns To Go Downstairs

Like many puppies, this little guy is afraid to go down the stairs. It can be a frightening experience for little puppies, but thankfully his mom is nearby ready to help.

It’s a big step in his life–literally–but it’s an important skill all dogs need to learn. Watch as this mom shows her puppy how it’s done. She even sits at the bottom of the steps, eventually coaxing her puppy down the stairs.

5. Reunited And It Feels So Good



Bess used to live life as a stray, which can be tough for a mama expecting twelve puppies. Luckily, some caring humans picked her up and got her the care she needed. Even after giving birth, Bess needed a team of people helping her out with her babies. It takes a village!

With her humans’ help, this mama dog raised her puppies until they could go to their own forever homes. But that wasn’t their final goodbye. All of Bess’s puppies met up on their birthday to see mom again, and she was so happy! This video is sure to bring tears to your eyes!

7. Mom Teaches Puppies To Play

10. Mom Nurses Eleven Puppies
