Great Dog Island is an uninhabited islet of the British Virgin Islands.

Great Dog is the largest of a smaller group of islets known as the Dog Islands, or more commonly, "The Dogs". Its neighbours are West Dog Island and George Dog Island, and all are to the northwest of Virgin Gorda.

On the south side of the island, an old Air BVI aircraft has been deliberately sunk as a dive site for recreational divers. Although the plane no longer has its wings, the emergency oxygen masks are still hanging from the roof, after being released during the planes unfortunate last landing (on water, in 1993 on a failed take off).
