Just when your social media life reached capacity with the most famous celebrities, in came the most famous dogs. And now they (and, to be honest, some of their jealous feline counterparts) are redefining “influencer” and “breadwinner.”

From Facebook to Instagram to TikTok, these dyna-dogs are proving they have what it takes to educate, motivate, influence, earn, and flat-out entertain.

Long before social media made overnight global fame a mere shoulder-shrug, there were dogs who earned their fame the hard way in the 1900’s. Rin Tin Tin, Lassie, Toto, and Hachiko are just a few household doggo names from pre-internet days.

But gone are the dog days of mere movie and legendary fame. Today’s most famous dogs are celebrities and influencers in their own right, putting irresistible faces to their humans’ creative marketing skills, including those punny dog names too!

Some are canine mini-me’s of their celebrity humans, basking in the limelight and waiting for their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Some are devoted to drawing awareness to causes like animal rescue and disability acceptance.

And others are flooding the airwaves with their pure sweetness and adorability to bring a much-needed dose of joy to the world.

One thing’s for sure, though: These doggos have taken the lead on their walkies, and people are following…with their hearts and with their wallets.
