5 Celebrity Inspired Dog Walking Outfits

Just because you’re walking your dog, it doesn’t mean you can wear pajamas! After all, you want both you and your pooch to look amazing.

Most dog owners walk their pets for at least eight hours and 54 minutes a week. You never know who you’ll bump into while taking a stroll through the park.

Nowadays, there are plenty of dog walking outfits for every style. Throw away your old clothes and put something nice on.

Walk your furry friend in style with these celebrity-inspired outfits:

Cardigan and Jeans

The Fifty Shades of Grey actress loves to wear cozy cardigans and jeans when walking her pooch. Her fashion style is classy yet relaxed.

Dakota matches her dog walking outfits with a pair of boots and black-rimmed glasses. Her geek chic look doesn’t go unnoticed.

You can do the same – put on a blazer or a cardigan plus boyfriend jeans. Wear a basic T-shirt or a sweater beneath the cardigan.

Hoodie and Yoga Pants

Gigi Hadid looks stunning in leggings and yoga pants! She usually matches them with cropped hoodies or loose jackets.

This outfit is perfect for a long walk in the park. It keeps you warm and shows how hard you’ve worked your legs. Put on a pair of sneakers and you’re good to go!

Parka Jacket and Classic Jeans

Dog walking is anything but fun when the temperature drops. However, this doesn’t mean you should keep your pooch inside the house.

Take inspiration from Sienna Miller and wear a cozy parka jacket. Match it with classic jeans and boots to stay warm. Better yet, add a hat to the mix!

Get some cute accessories for your pet too. A custom dog tag or a stylish vest will make him look awesome!

A Cute Romper

Don’t let the hot weather stop you from taking long walks! A fashionable romper is all you need to stay cool in the summer.

Olivia Munn, for instance, looks fabulous in rompers. She matches them with sneakers or slip-on shoes for a comfortable walk.

Rompers come in all shapes and styles. You don’t have to be super lean to wear one! Go online for inspiration.

From sleeveless rompers to ruffle rompers and chiffon rompers, there are hundreds of models available. Choose one that matches your body type. For a classy look, pick a romper dress.

Tank Top and Maxi Skirt

Look casual yet feminine like Ashley Tisdale in a tank top and maxi skirt. The actress prefers pastel colors, such as pink and cream. She also has a passion for wedges!

This kind of outfit looks great on everyone! Whether you’re full-figured or slender, people will compliment your style.

If you’re not into wedges, go for flats or slip-ons.

How to Choose the Best Dog Walking Outfits

As you see, there are no set rules on what to wear when walking your pooch. It all comes down to your preferences.

The whole point is to feel comfortable without compromising on style. Jeans, leggings, T-shirts, and casual jackets are a great choice. If heels are your thing, go for it!

5 Celebrities Who Adopted (Adorable!) Rescue Puppies

Celebrity rescue dogs: Each year, approximately 4 million dogs and cats are rescued and taken into their forever homes.

Turns out even celebrities love their animals just as much as we do. Although you might assume that celebrities buy their pups from expensive breeders, many choose to adopt instead.

This amazing trend of rescue puppies is one we can definitely get behind, and we’re here to show you just how popular this movement is in today’s society. Let’s get into it!

Celebrities Adopting Adorable Rescue Puppies

Gisele Bundchen & Tom Brady

Even though they could easily afford any animal on the market, this powerhouse couple chose to adopt their adorable new friend, named Fluffy, in early 2016 from Wags and Walks Rescue.

Huge animal advocates, Gisele and Tom are also the owners of two other rescue dogs.


George Clooney

Did you know that Hollywood’s notorious sexiest gentleman is also an avid doggie lover?

In 2015, George and Amal Clooney adopted Millie, a 4-year old homeless Basset Hound from the Humane Society.

This dog joined their other rescue dog, Louie, and the two quickly became best friends.

Dog owners need to make many choices. From figuring out your dog’s diet to buying the best air purifier for pet hair removal, (allergies?) you will undoubtedly be faced with many important decisions. Be like Clooney and check out rescue options first.


Hilary Swank

Just because she’s a legendary and award-winning actress doesn’t mean Hilary Swank is above animal justice and animal rights.

In fact, Hilary is such an advocate for abandoned and rescued dogs that she created her own charity, the Hilaroo Foundation, after falling in love with Karoo on set in South Africa.

Hilary was so smitten with this dog that she essentially had her nursed back to health (the poor Karoo was completely full of worms, covered in fleas, and had been doused in kerosene).

When Karoo died prematurely, Hilary knew she had to turn her life into a legacy and help other dogs, and that was the catalyst behind launching her organization.

Miranda Lambert

Turns out this famous country star isn’t just about creating memorable music and rocking hard on stage.

She’s also the proud owner of six rescue dogs and the founder of Muttnation Foundation, an organization that actively works to provide safety for thousands of rescue dogs and rescue puppies around the country.

Muttnation is passionate about providing education and facilitation of adopting shelter pets and keeping these animals safe and healthy.


Aaron Rogers & Olivia Munn

A post shared by Olivia Munn (@oliviamunn) on

In 2015, this couple became proud parents of a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Chance. The actress has happily posted adorable pictures of her dog on Instagram and has urged her followers to look into rescuing dogs as opposed to buying them.

We all know social media is full of adorable animals. Check out her Instagram for some of the cutest doggie pics out there!

Adopt Today!

Although owning a dog is a lot of hard work, it’s also incredibly fun and rewarding.

Take these celebrities’ advice to heart. Be sure that rescuing is one of the choices you decide to make.

10 Stunning Celebrity Dog Houses You Need to See

Celebrities are almost obliged to splurge on outrageous things, and as expenses go, making sure one’s pet is happy and healthy might seem pretty minor. Not true of the celebrities snapping up these luxury dog houses, which can cost more than most of us make in a decade.

Here are 10 amazing doggie homes that have to be seen to be believed.


The Hilton Mansion


When they’re not running their own Instagram page, Paris Hilton’s dogs are living it up in a canine-sized replica of the Hilton mansion.

The 300 square foot doggie mansion was custom designed by Paris herself, with help from interior decorator Faye Resnick. The cost? A not insubstantial $325,000.

Hilton has a gaggle of pets circulating through her social media, so no one can be sure how many pooches are currently sharing the Hilton Doggie Mansion. It’s probably safe to say they’re in a more comfortable share house situation than we were in college.


Gunther III’s Miami Beach Mansion

When Countess Karlotta Libenstein died in 1991, her German Shepherd dog Gunther III inherited her entire $80 million dollar fortune. Trustees of the estate ensured he made smart investments with his money, including villas in Italy and the Bahamas.

But the most famous of his real estate purchases happened in 2000 when he dropped a cool $7.5 million on a mansion in Miami Beach. The owner of that mansion? Madonna.

Gunther III has since gone onto the big doggie mansion in the sky, but his inheritance is in safe paws. Gunther IV inherited $375 million from his father and is up to his pointy ears in steak and caviar.

The Minill Victorian Mansion

victorian dog house

When an owl almost made off with her beloved Pomeranian, Tammy Kassis did what any rich dog lover would do. She spent $20,000 on a mini-replica of her own Victorian mansion for her pooches.

The luxury dog house has hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, air conditioning, and central heating. Chelsea, Darla, and Coco Puff each have their own bed. Oh, and their owner is in the market for a small plasma TV so that they can watch Animal Planet.

The whole affair is topped off with its very own manicured lawn with a white picket fence. These are proper suburban family dogs.


Frank Lloyd Wright’s Dog House

frank lloyd wright dog house

Frank Lloyd Wright was an architect of singular vision and talent. His designs are still celebrated today for making design accessible to all.

And in 1957 he designed a dog house for his Black Lab, Eddie.

The request for the design came from Jim Berger who was then 12 years old. Wright was building Jim’s father a house, and Jim thought he’d put his paper route money toward commissioning Wright himself. The project? An abode for their black Labrador, Eddie.

Wright was a little busy building the Guggenheim at the time but did end up sending plans over the following November.


Celebrity Hacienda Dog House

Supermodel Rachel Hunter splurged $30,000 on a custom designed Hacienda dog house for her canine companion. And the good news is, you can too!

Amenities — yes, amenities — include running water, lighting, air conditioning, and heat. Each doggie Hacienda is custom made to complement the human house and grounds. And if your pet has any allergies, hypoallergenic building materials are available.

The only thing missing is the picket fence, but luckily PawCastle has you covered there.


State-Of-The-Art Gloucestershire Kennel

Two Great Danes in Gloucestershire are living in a dog house that would make Tony Stark jealous.

The state-of-the-art kennel features sheepskin-lined, temperature-controlled beds, automatic deluxe food and water dispensers, a $150,000 sound system, and a 53-inch plasma TV. Oh, and a spa.

The housewarming is definitely sorted at this estate. Or rather it would be if the two Great Danes weren’t the only ones allowed in. No really. This $250,000 doggie home comes with a retina scanner.


William Pedersen’s One Jackson Square (OJS) Doghouse

william pederson dog house

As Design Partner at architecture firm KPF, William Pedersen’s usual credits are a mite taller than the average dog house. That didn’t stop him from designing the OJS Doghouse for a charity event in 2016.

The conical shell of the house uses 57 layers of half-inch-thick baltic birch plywood CNC that have been laminated together. Topped with a flat rooftop, perfect for plantings or a pet bed, the design is both rustic and modern.

Pedersen adds that the circular shape is ideal, as it will “cradle a curled up canine in slumber”.

“Dog is a God” Dog Houses

“Dog is a God” is a line of modern dog houses built by Italian designer Marci Morosini. They range from functionally stylish, like the travel trailer Nomad dog’s house, to creations that are more artwork than dog home.

Morosini seeks to explore the position of worship our canine friends hold. He claims that the one place our dog companions belong is on a pedestal.


The Notre Palais

If you’re after a one-of-a-kind, luxury dog home, you can’t have this one because it’s bought and paid for.

The exclusive Notre Palais dog home is credited to Barbara Thulin-Joyce and sold for a non-insubstantial $5,400.

Converted from a vintage radio frame, this luxury pet abode is furnished with ultra high-end fabrics and intricate embroidery. Perfect for the dog born with a silver spoon in its mouth.


Summa Canum

The Obamas’ family dog Bo was a welcome celebrity during the family’s time in the White House. But you may not have heard he inspired an eco-friendly dog house design.

Summa Cunum, or “top dog” in Latin, was designed to be the perfect compliment to the White House itself. It’s built using Tennessee aromatic cedar trees, the same species planted by President Andrew Jackson. The use of zero-VOC paint renders it good for the environment, and your lungs.


Luxury Dog Houses Are a Booming Industry

Whether you own a million dollar dog, or just believe your canine companion is worth that much, luxury dog houses are a booming industry ripe for the spending.

But it doesn’t stop there. When your canine companion has their own canine companion, the situation may just call for an extravagant doggie wedding. John Legend certainly thought so.

5 Inspiring Celebrity Weight Loss Stories and How Dogs Can Help

Losing weight is the ultimate goal for many men and women.

In America alone, about 38% of adults are considered obese. A whopping 71% are considered overweight.

If you don’t believe me, get out of your bubble and visit a football game or state fair!

Obesity is a rising epidemic that plagues both the young and old — and it doesn’t discriminate. It’s likely that you’ve even seen a few of your favorite celebrities battling weight problems.

Some have captured their journeys on camera, while others handled their weight loss behind the scenes. There are many of us who look to these individuals for inspiration for our own weight loss journeys.

What’s also interesting is that having a pet, such as a dog, can help you shed a few pounds. We’re going to go over some of the top celebrity weight loss stories. Then, we’ll delve deeper into the health benefits of being a dog owner.

1. Candace Cameron Bure: Meal Planning

You’ve seen her hosting on The View and slowly but surely losing weight. Her method revolves around meal planning. According to Candace, it’s all about planning ahead for hunger when you’re on the go.

This is a smart move. After all, we are at our weakest when we’re hungry and far from our kitchens. So rather than stopping at McDonald’s or another fast food joint, you can pack a healthy meal with you.

Another way Candace handled traveling was by eating before going on a cross-country flight.

2. Britney Spears: Personal Trainer

There’s no surprise here, given she was the princess of pop at one point. Why wouldn’t Britney Spears have a personal trainer to guide her to the body she wants? But this doesn’t mean you have to do the same.

Her trainer Tony Martinez divulged some of the methods he used on Britney. This includes what’s known as the Four Bs:

  1. Backward walking
  2. Basketball jump shots
  3. Balancing on one leg while doing medicine-ball slams
  4. Bicycling

And if you follow her on Instagram, you’ll see she also admitted to doing basic workouts such as core work, push-ups, squats, and bar curls.

3. Blake Lively: Homemade Food

After having her daughter in 2014, Blake had to shed the baby weight the next year to play the role of Nancy in The Shallows.

Rather than counting calories or depriving herself of pizza and pasta, she decided to stick to homemade foods for just about everything.

Her diet was well-balanced and healthy.

It included fruits, veggies, proteins, sweet potatoes, avocado, grass-fed butter, and coconut oil. Don Saladino, her trainer, shared that Blake’s main goal was to eat healthy 80% of the time.

This left a little room for treats, such as macaroni and cheese.

4. Kim Kardashian: Protein in Every Meal

Now, we all know Kim Kardashian and have watched her figure thicken and then slim down again, especially after her pregnancy. Her celebrity weight loss journey is quite popular today.

And those trying to do the same are likely counting calories and avoiding protein.

But for Kim, it was included in each of her meals. This is how she says she lost her baby weight – eating meals with 6 oz of protein.

For breakfast, this was in the form of eggs. Lunch was fish, and dinner was lean chicken breast.

5. Jennifer Hudson: Limit Your Eating Time Frame

Here’s another miraculous celebrity weight loss story worth noting. She’s gone from a size 16 to 6 after joining Weight Watchers in 2010.

Since then, she’s been able to maintain the 80 pounds she lost. During an interview on a show in the UK, she revealed that the key to her weight management was not eating too early in the morning or late at night.

How Do Dogs Come Into Play?

Man’s best friend has done it again. They’ve proven themselves to be helpful to humans in so many ways. Besides making great companions and boosting happiness, they’re also known to help with weight loss.

And there’s nothing magical about it. In fact, it’s kind of genius. Having a dog can make you more active and health conscious. When you’re responsible for another life, you tend to do more.

As we all know, when you have a dog, you have to walk it, play with it and make sure they stay healthy. But you have to be committed. So, not all dog owners will have the same results.

Jordin Sparks weight loss was done using healthy herbs, but she’s also a dog lover. So we can imagine how walking her three pups could help her shed a few pounds.

Let’s review how you can make the most of being a dog owner.

Healthy Dog Equals Healthy Celebrity Weight Loss

Now, it’s quite common for dog owners and their dogs to lead the same lifestyles. So if the owner eats a lot and doesn’t do much, the same goes for their pet.

Then comes the weight gain for both the owner and the dog.

This is what was witnessed back in 2007 with Brady Bunch star Maureen McCormick. After seeing her dog gaining a lot of weight from snacking and lying around, she decided to make a healthy change for the both of them.

Working Out with Your Dog

This is by far one of the best benefits of owning a dog. These little ones are born to play, so owners who can keep up will maintain good fitness. You can take your dog on walks, jogs, bike rides and even hikes.

And what’s even better is they will continuously challenge you. Keeping up with your dog isn’t always easy. This means a constant challenge to improve your health.

Dogs Can Motivate You to Move

When you have an active dog, they will keep you active. Try lying around for too long and surely your pet will nudge you for a walk or to play catch with their favorite chew toy.

Once you’ve created a workout regimen that includes your dog, it will help you stay on point. Their energy doesn’t die easily, so your dog will whine until you get up and get moving.

Dogs, Diet, and Exercise

It seems the key to being a healthy person is having the right combination. For some celebrity weight loss stories, this included exercise, dieting, and having a dog.

Celebrities are well-known for sharing their love of their pups. In fact, dogs have almost become a must-have accessory, thanks to celebrities like Paris Hilton, Nichole Richie, and countless others.

If you’re a dog lover, make sure you read up on the latest celebrity dog news online. That way, you’ll know the latest trends when it comes to your four-legged friends, and will learn more about the numerous benefits owning a dog offers to both celebrities and normal people.

5 of the Most Outrageous Dog Outfits (You Have to See #2!)

Harper’s Bazaar has a list of the most outrageous celebrity dresses of all time. Included in the list are Beyonce’s barely there 2015 Met Ball gown, Miley Cyrus’ Buzz Lightyear costume for the 2015 MTV VMAs, and Lady Gaga’s meat dress for the 2010 MTV VMAs.

But as impressive as these dresses are, they simply can’t beat the awesomeness of dogs in a costume. Don’t believe us? Here are five of the most outrageous dog outfits that will have you going gaga on all the eleganza.

1. All of Agador’s Lewks:

“Wish you were here ?.” #vacationmode ? #lavieestbelle ? #iamatraveler ?? #biarritz ?? #agadorable ?

A post shared by Hello. My name is Agador ? (@poochofnyc) on

If you’re not following Agador on Instagram, you’re missing out on a lot of fabulousness. It’s not just his fluffy head and the way he poses in sunglasses. It’s his effortless style that makes even an ugly print shirt look so freaking adorable.

Is it any wonder he has over 80,000 followers? If you’re looking for dogs of Instagram that are too cute not to follow, don’t forget to include Agador in your list. He’s not just cute, though, he’s a style icon, too.


2. Doug The Pug’s “Eleven” Costume

Were you looking for Hollywood-inspired dog outfits? Why not take your style cue from another Instagram-famous dog? Doug The Pug’s Eleven costume is not just on point, it’s an eleven in a world full of tens.

He wore it when he went to hang out with the boys from “Stranger Things.” If you didn’t know, Doug is a huge fan of the series. He also cosplayed Barb last year.

Tip: If you want your pooch to rock a Hollywood-style costume, you don’t have to look very far. Just take inspiration from your favorite movie or TV show.


3. Sasha’s Prom Dress

Most people associate twinning with mommy and me outfits. But you can go twinning with your furry pal, too.

Brenda Sierra did it with her rescue dog, Sasha. When she got her senior prom dress altered, Brenda decided to make a matching outfit for Sasha, as well. Best of all, it didn’t cost a lot since she used the leftover material from her gown.

It’s really a great idea, especially if you don’t want to be too outrageous with your dog’s outfits. If you have a racerfront crop top, for example, you can easily sew one for your dog or pick an easier style like this no-sew crop top if you’re not too handy with a sewing machine.


4. Pretty in Pink

Yorkies Gia, Pia, Mia, and Tia are furry fashionistas who strutted their stuff at the 2017 New York Pet Fashion Show at the Hotel Pennsylvania. They wore pink dresses while riding a remote-controlled pink convertible.

If you scroll through their Instagram feed, you can see that pink is their signature color. For your pooch, you don’t have to go with pink if you’re not a fan. You can choose any color as long as it shows off your doggie’s good looks and charm in the best possible light.


5. Chica aka DogSpider:

We did say outrageous dog outfits. So if you’re looking for something that’s a little less cute and more scare the bejeezus out of people, you need to take inspiration from Chica the DogSpider.

What’s scarier than a dog masquerading as a giant spider lurking behind doorways, ready to pounce on unsuspecting victims? You really have to see the video to appreciate its scary beauty.
