Over the past three decades, pet ownership in the U.S. has grown significantly. Unsurprisingly, dogs lead the pack as the most popular pets. Pups reside in 66% of U.S. households (86.9 million homes) as of 2023, according to Forbes. This rise in pet ownership has paved the way for a new breed of influencers – dog influencers! These incredible canines have amassed large followings on social media platforms such as Instagram.

In recent years, pets have become a staple in advertising, with heartwarming commercials like Amazon’s highest-rated tech Super Bowl ad featuring a lonely dog. Dogs even have their own annual Puppy Bowl event on Animal Planet, featuring puppies from different shelters and rescue organizations.

With high engagement rates, these dog influencers have carved out a niche in the influencer marketing industry.

Recent research has unveiled the most financially successful dog influencers on social media. These findings may motivate you to improve your pet’s on-camera abilities and social media presence.

The research, conducted by Printed Pet Memories, examined the social media profiles of popular influencer dogs. They utilized an Influencer Marketing Calculator. This tool determined the dogs with the most influential social media presence. Also, it estimated how much these dog influencers could earn per sponsored Instagram post if they collaborated with brands on the platform.

“We are thrilled to see the impact these top dog influencers are having on social media. Their ability to earn thousands of dollars from a single post is a testament to the strong bond between pets and their human companions,” Thomas Phillips, the founder and CEO of Printed Pet Memories, said in a press release. “It’s incredible to witness the growing popularity of pet influencers, and we believe it signifies a bright future for the pet industry as a whole.”
