How to Draw a Dog For Kids - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Dogs are famously known as "man's best friend." Begin your happy dog companion by drawing an ellipse for its snout.

Step 2: Add a half circle on top of the ellipse to form the rest of the dog's head.

Step 3: Add a larger elliptical loop to the bottom of the snout ellipse you drew in step 1.

Step 4: Draw the two front legs as gradually converging lines that join together in a rounded lobe.

Step 5: Draw each back leg as a curved line running from the bottom right and left of the dog's body.

Step 6: Add the dog's flappy ears as elongated loops on the sides of the dog's head.

Step 7: Draw the dog's long tail as two curved lines that converge in a point. When dogs are happy they wag their tails.

Step 8: Draw the dog's eyes as half-ovals resting on the top of the snout. Shade the eyes but remember to leave a small white dot at the top to show reflection.

Step 9: Draw the dog's nose as a shaded chevron shape at the top of the snout. Beneath it, draw an upward arching curve for the dog's mouth.
