How To Walk Your Dog Like These Celebrity Dog Lovers

We all can’t be rich and famous, taking our canine companions to celebrity dog resorts or hiring architects for custom-built dog houses.

But we can, with a little planning and the right attitude, emulate the richest and most famous celebrity dog lovers during daily walks.

And here’s how to do it.

What You Should Wear

There is no official dog walking outfit. But if there was, would it involve workout gear or jeans?

Judging by what celebrity dog lovers wear, it’s too close to call. Either way, it seems that casual is the new glamorous when walking the family pooch.

Try wearing ordinary pants, shorts, or a skirt. They can be made of denim, spandex, cotton, leather, or any other material. Aim for solid or neutral tones.

Now for the trick of creating the casual glam of celebrity dog lovers out for a walk: go upscale with your top or shoes. Not both.

For example, wear Converse high-tops with jeans. Then pair them with a tailored blouse or trim T-shirt and well-fitting blazer.

Or do the reverse. On top, wear a simple T-shirt and hoodie but on your feet rock a pair of Olivela designer sandals.

To create a full-out glamorous dog-walking outfit, women can wear silhouette dresses or sport luxurious jewelry.

If it’s raining or snowing, choose coats and footwear that say you understand practicality but won’t give up on style.

And if you want to look like a celebrity who doesn’t want to be recognized while walking the dog, sunglasses, scarves, and hats are go-to accessories that are always in fashion.

Whatever you do, get inspiration from celebrity dog-walking outfits then change one thing to make it your own.

What Your Dog Should Wear

Celebrities know that they aren’t the only one out for a walk. Their canine friend also needs to make a good impression.

How to do that falls into two categories: With clothing and without.

Celebrities who tend to dress their pups include Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and Paris Hilton. If you want to follow their lead, find garments that are the right size and reflect the animal’s personality, not yours.

Many people believe it’s also important to match the style of clothing to the breed. Chihuahuas in leather jackets can work but Great Dane’s in tutus can be considered gauche.

If you’re among those who believe a dog’s fur is their best outfit, you can still accessorize. Choose collars and leashes that reflect the setting or your dog’s personality.

For example, on a bright early spring day, opt for a leaf green collar or leash with flowers on it. If you’re taking your dog with you to an outdoor evening event, rhinestones or gold could be the answer. Collars that match your outfit is a visual clue to how much you love your canine friend.

To create a more classic look, give your dog a narrow leather collar. The addition of a colorful bandanna can add a timeless sense of fun.

As for footwear, do what’s best for your dog. In colder climates, small breeds can develop sore feet if they don’t have protection. Make sure they fit well and provide some traction.

What To Carry

Yes, even celebrity dog lovers need to carry poop bags. But they know how to carry them with style.

Ladies can sport a small, across-the-body purse or carry a sophisticated tote bag.

Gents are more likely to carry supplies in their pockets. Although, some famous guys like Hugh Jackman and Brad Pitt find courier-style shoulder bags useful.

Some dogs aren’t big enough to handle long walks. For those situations, there’s a wide range of over-the-shoulder dog carriers. Puppy gets a view of the action but doesn’t have to do any of the work!

And, it seems that most celebs have a smartphone in their hand when walking their dog. Maybe you’re already more like a celebrity than you think!

Where to Go

The destination is an important part of the walk for celebrity dog lovers. Besides giving the pup a place to do their business, the location can create an image.

If you want to be seen as a relaxed, down-to-earth person, walks in the park, in a ravine, or along a beach are perfect.

To convey a more corporate, time is money sensibility, stick to busy urban streets and parkettes.

Family walks are best suited to wider, suburban streets and parks with playgrounds. But people who are single and looking might want to take Fido with them as they shop and do errands.

Walking Routines of Celebrity Dog Lovers

There’s no way to know for certain but it appears that walking routines are difficult for celebrities to maintain. Travel is a necessary part of work for most well-known actors and musicians.

It’s common for celebrities to have professional dog walkers on standby.

But if you don’t have that problem, the celebrity dog walking routine you might want to follow comes from Cesar Millan, aka The Dog Whisperer. Many famous people have followed his tips for dog walking and made the daily activity better for everyone.

A Last Thought

When the spotlight is off, many celebrities are like us. They care deeply for their pets and do what they can to keep them happy and healthy.

But when the spotlight is on, celebrities offer a valuable lesson about walking our dogs. Be confident, dress in your own style, and above all else, be proud of your pup.

How about you? Do people think you’re a celebrity by the way you walk your dog? Share your stories of paparazzi-worthy dog walks. Or if you’ve seen celebrities walking their dogs, what did you learn from them?

6 Most Expensive Celebrity Homes (and Their Dogs!)

Forget eating cold kibble in a plastic bowl by the laundry room.

Celebrity pets are swaddled in luxury, from their designer duds to their lush beds (both of which, might we add, are nicer than our own).

That’s why, when designing a home, many superstars will make sure there are plenty of amenities for their pampered pooches.

Today, we’re taking a look at some of the most expensive celebrity homes and the furbabies that lounge there.

Ready to go? Let’s get into it!


1. Oprah Winfrey’s Montecito Estate

Does your doggie love curling up in front of The Animal Channel? He’d have the time of his life in Oprah’s Montecito, California retreat, valued at $90 million.

With an in-home movie theater, six bedrooms, and whopping 14 bathrooms, there’s plenty of space for the television megastar’s five pups: Luke and Layla (golden retrievers) Lauren and Sunny (springer spaniels) and Sadie (cocker spaniel)!

When they tire of indoor luxuries, the mini moguls can head out to the fully stocked, man-made lake and splash around. Can we come too?


2. Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion

With the recent news of Hefner’s passing, many wondered what would happen to the Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Lady and Charlie, he doted on with his wife, Crystal.

While it’s not clear yet where they’ll take up future residence, they’ve been living pretty high on the hog in the iconic Playboy Mansion, which is worth a reported $100 million, making it one of the most expensive celebrity homes ever.

When any of the mansion’s 29 rooms begin to bore them, the pups are free to wander around the guest house, try their hand on the tennis courts, or hit up the wine cellar, where we’d venture to guess they’re the life of the party!


3. Jay-Z and Beyonce’s Bel-Air Beauty

The reigning king and queen of rap are “Crazy in Love” with their fluffy white family dog, which they revealed to the world in 2016.

Though there has been speculation around the breed (Is it a poodle? Maybe a Maltese Toy?) and the couple hasn’t revealed its name yet, one thing’s for certain: It’s one lucky dog.

Complete with a 15-car garage, spa center, and whirlpool that seats 12 guests, the pair’s $120 million Bel-Air estate offers no shortage of opulence.

When the pooch needs to jet off to NYC for a weekend getaway, it’s no problem. A private helicopter pad is just steps away!

If you make that kind of money, I guess you don’t even care about this 15% off Petco coupon


4. Tiger Woods’ Florida Compound

Following his high-profile divorce, Woods splurged on a $60 million mansion in Jupiter, Florida. He now shares the home with his son, daughter and their newest pup “Bugs,” a black and white cutie who joined the family in 2015.

In all, the family has three dogs, all of which are free to explore the 12-acre property’s many swanky features.

Arguably the best one? The four-hole golf course that serves as the backyard. Bugs may have a better swing than we do!


5. Ryan Seacrest’s Beverly Hills Retreat

The busiest man in Hollywood has to have an incredible place to chill, right?

Seacrest purchased his mansion from Ellen DeGeneres for approximately $49 million in 2012, making it one of the most expensive homes ever sold. He shares it with his three-year-old black lab, Georgia.

If the pond, guesthouse, and 9,200-square-foot main residence don’t offer enough excitement, Georgia can always come to work with her dad. She made an appearance on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” in May 2017 and earned rave reviews!


6. Michael Jordan’s Chicago Slam Dunk

There’s no denying you’re at MJ’s mansion! The basketball icon adorned his front gate with the number “23” to mark the spot.

With 15 bathrooms, a full basketball court, putting green, and even a card room, his northern Chicago estate has everything that anyone — and any dog — could want.

The family pet, a furry little nugget named Mila, can roam around the property’s indoor movie theater, basketball gym, cigar room, and more.

Have around $15 million to spend? You’re in luck! The home has been on the market for five years.

Dog Hairstyles Worthy of the Red Carpet

It’s almost fall and that means fall fashions! While everyone loves breaking out the chunky sweaters and hiking boots, it’s important that you don’t forget about those who can be less fashion fortunate than you – your dog.

It’s easy to help your furry best friend to be fashion forward with just a few snips. Take this change of the season to get your pooch in style with a hairstyle worthy of the celebrity they are.

Treating the Star Like a Star

Of course, any hairstyle needs care for it to work well. Shampooing, conditioner, combing, a proper diet all combine to keep your dog’s coat healthy and keep them happy.

The Mussed Look

This is a carefully constructed way for your dog to say “I don’t care.” A little hair gel and they’ll have all the dogs swooning at doggie day care.

Pro tip though – don’t go overboard. You want to work the hair just around the head, if you go too much around the body your dog will be sporting the “Static Electricity Look” which is not a style that the in-crowd covets.

The Comb-Over:

For years this has been the last grasp of men of a certain age who don’t want to admit that their full head of hair days are behind them. Well, this look has been reclaimed, refreshed, and reimagined for the 21st-century pooch.

This is a cool style that works particularly well for dogs with a narrower face. It works really nice in conjunction with a full cut.

Celebrity Styles

You know your dog is a star, shouldn’t the whole world? Why not share your dog’s star-power with a cut that invokes their favorite celebrity while allowing your pup to add their own style. Take what makes your pet special and use it!

If they have an artistic temperament give them their 15 minutes as with a touch of Andy Warhol. If you’ve got a furry little athlete, maybe you want to cut it close and give them a Lebron James.

Tough yet Tender / fauxhawk:

The mohawk, a staple of punk rock. Your dog can rock a mohawk hard or dial it back a bit and go a little softer with a fauxhawk.

It’s a simple look just a little gel and a comb but when done right look out! Your star will be strutting like John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever.

Windswept

It’s the “standing forlornly on the beach looking across the waves” look. Perfect for emo-loving teens and dogs of a certain type.

This look, obtained with the help of a blow dryer, is a great way to draw attention to those puppy dog eyes. Be prepared to fall in love all over again.

Your Furry Fashionista

A sweet new Fall cut is just what your dog needs to take the changing seasons by storm. They’ll be the talk of the dog park with a look that’s all red carpet.

In fact, take the changing of the season to give your dog a full makeover. That means not just a new look but making sure they feel like a star too by taking care of their teeth, get them a checkup, and make sure their dog flea medicine is up to date.

Then find the cut that matches your dog’s personal style, enhances their features and brings out their “wow.” In no time at all, you’ll be chasing off paparazzi on your evening walks

The Bachelor, Ben Flajnik, Brings His Dog on a Date

Ben Flajnik's dog, Scotch

Ben Flajnik, aka “The Bachelor,” was happy to bring his dog on a date in his hometown of Sonoma, California. Apparently his dog, a Jack Russell Terrier named, “Scotch,” (why would a winemaker name his dog, Scotch!?) approved of date Courtney Robertson, but did begin to howl as Flajnik moved in for a kiss. “You’re ruining the moment, Buddy,” he replied to the dog.

When Courtney, a model, mentioned that Scotch was heavier than he looked, Ben replied, “He’s a little over 20 pounds… When he stays at Grandma’s house, he puts on a few lb’s.”

We’re hoping that Flajnik brings his dog on more dates, as no one is a better judge of true character than a dog!

You can watch Scotch accompany Ben on his date below:
