When it comes to origami dogs there’s actually a lot of great models of tons of different dog species. I was actually kind of surprised at how much variety there is in origami dogs.

In this post we’ll look at a whole bunch of great origami dog models starting with these great Labrador Retrievers.

This is one of my favourite looking origami models. The entire thing including both the house and the dog is folded from one sheet of paper.
