Many celebs treat themselves to a luxurious life, but some A-listers pamper their pets even more. The list of pet-loving celebs includes Oscar winners, Grammy victors, reality TV stars and even royals!
These 17 celebrity pets live the luxe life in a variety of ways — from pet mansions that run hundreds of thousands of dollars to first class airline tickets and even to drinking bowls made of very expensive crystal. Adoration for furry pals is hard to measure in money, but these particular celebs show that for them their four-legged friends deserve the absolute best. Spa treatments? Yap! Chauffeur-driven limos? Of course!
A number of these pampered celebrity pets even have their own agents! That’s right, some of these awesome animals even bring in their own cash. They work hard to enjoy the luxurious lifestyle of the rich and furry. Prepare to dive into the life of some large living four-legged pals. A few of the famous owners might immediately come right to mind, such as Taylor Swift and her fawned-over felines and Paris Hilton and her pups. Other celebs are less expected. For example, there’s the story about George Clooney being asked to choose between his pot-bellied pig and his girlfriend. History has shown how that worked out. There’s even Cara Delevingne and her rabbit, who a certain fashion icon called his best friend. Read on!
Taylor Swift’s Cats.
Following any of Taylor's social media accounts makes it clear that felines are fantastic in her Swift world — even if one tried to ruin her Met Gala dress, as reported in Us Weekly. It should be of no surprise that her whiskered pals live the high life for the “Shake it Off” singer. Dr. Meredith Grey, Olivia Benson and Benjamin Button — who joined her kitty legion after Taylor met him on the set of the music video for “ME!” — work hard for their catnip. Meredith and Olivia images adorn many Taylor Swift T-shirts and other memorabilia (such as makeup bags) that sell like hotcakes. Taylor even applied for a trademark for two of the names, “Meredith & Olivia Swift.” "I have cats,” the singer told Time. “I'm obsessed with them. They're very dignified. They're independent. They're very capable of dealing with their own life."
Ryan Gosling’s Dog.
George Gosling, aka the late mixed-breed pup adored by superstar Ryan Gosling, had his own hairdresser (remember the photo of him sporting a mohawk?). The Oscar nominee created contracts stating that George must accompany him on press tours and even while filming. Being a superstar can be lonely, so one can see why it’s nice to have man’s best friend by your side. Ryan was even quoted in Us Weekly as saying that his dog would make a better interviewee than him. “George is way more interesting than I am,” he said. The Notebook star wears a set of dog tags with George’s name on them and even wore a T-Shirt with his pup’s likeness on it when he hosted Saturday Night Live.
Carrie Underwood’s Dogs.
The American Idol winner and country crooning superstar first had a Rat Terrier named Ace. When it comes to how Carrie treated her dog, she was aces. Ace was decked out in a pink tuxedo adorned with Swarovski crystals at Carrie’s wedding to Mike Fisher. It’s always nice to have a little bit of home when touring the world, and Ace is always by her side — even if it means the “Before He Cheats” singer has to shell out a ton of extra cash for pet cleaning fees at the world’s finest hotels. Joining Carrie and Ace (and Mike) while touring are also Penny Jean, a Dachshund mix, and Zero, a Shepherd mix. CountryFanCast even showed that Penny gets to try out Carrie’s fashion line before anyone else! Also, in that report, it appeared that Carrie’s dogs get first dibs on their good friend Miranda Lambert’s pet product line with a bevy of bountiful doggie toys and products. Then there’s Zero, a new pup they just adopted. Mike, as quoted in Us Weekly, pitties the person who tries to break into their house. Seems he thinks son Isiah named the pup Zero because that is the chance someone would successfully break into their house!
Paris Hilton’s Dogs.
Paris was one of the first celebutantes to trot around Hollywood with her little fur babies in her purse — something many have been doing since. Paris showed them her adoration by building a replica of her own mansion. It has two floors, pink painted walls and is 300 square feet, and according to Us Weekly, ran $350,000. "My dogs live in this two-story doggy mansion that has air conditioning, heating, designer furniture, and a chandelier. Loves it,” Paris said on Twitter. The Simple Life veteran has also taken them to luxurious spas and has bought them designer jackets ... just what every canine needs. She even tweeted, “I may have spoiled them a little too much. But how can I not? Just look at those sweet lil’ faces, they deserve to be treated like my lil’ princes and princesses.”
Kylie Jenner’s Dogs.
Kylie Jenner has made it clear that she believes that pets are members of the family, so why should they have a different lifestyle than the rest of the luxurious Kardashian-Jenner clan? She built a doghouse in her mansion’s backyard just like Hilton. It even has air conditioning, and her pups — Norman, Bambi and Sophia — live the life in the billionaire’s (according to Forbes) orbit. Hey, if you have the means, why not? What’s most important is that the Italian Greyhounds get along with her daughter, Stormi. Judging by a video posted by Life & Style, the little girl and the pups are fast friends!
The Queen’s Corgis.
When it comes to the Queen of the British Empire, anyone who knows even the slightest amount about the head royal knows that she adores Corgis. Queen Elizabeth II's first Corgi, Susan, accompanied the royal on her honeymoon. The pups even had their own room in Buckingham Palace, according to Insider. Over the years, each dog has had its own bed and royal sheets that are changed daily. According to Good Housekeeping, the dogs do not eat doggie kibble. It’s palace chef-prepared beef, lamb, chicken and other high-priced meats. This love of Corgis began when Susan was gifted to the longest ruling monarch in British history for her 18th birthday in 1944. She has been loyal to the breed since. Sadly, as Us Weekly reported, the last of her beloved Corgis, Whisper, passed away in late October of 2018.
Britney Spears’ Dogs.
Bustle found that Britney Spears, in just one example, spent $24K on pet care, $14,270 on pet sitting, and $300 per groom at the groomers. Yeah, that’s kind of high. New Zealand Herald reported that her dog Bit Bit (a chihuahua) has sported a diamond-encrusted collar. Bit Bit has also accompanied the “Womanizer” hitmaker when she goes out to the finest restaurants in LA. The canine eats some of the world’s best chefs’ finest. No kibble for Bit Bit!
Cara Delevingne’s Rabbit.
Bunny rabbit Cecil Delevingne has spent his days chilling in expensive handbags belonging to Cara Delevingne. He seems to be doing all right. Sometimes he snacks on the celery out of his owner’s Bloody Marys, according to Elle. The supermodel-actress also purchased the rabbit his own miniature suitcase and has provided him with an endless supply of Havaianas, which he reportedly loves to nibble on. Among her famous pals, the late iconic designer Karl Lagerfeld posted on Instagram his utter adoration for Delevingne’s new fluffy friend. “Meet my new bunny BFF,” he posted.
Amanda Seyfried’s Dog.
Everyone knows about the Australian Shepherd owned by Amanda Seyfried. Finn has been adored so much that even Amanda’s ex-boyfriends have said that one of the things they were going to miss most about dating the actress was her pup. Even the Mamma Mia star knows it! “People start to miss him almost as much as I do when he's not around,” she said in InStyle. Her ex Dominic Cooper once told SheKnows, "He’s the most beautiful thing in the world and I miss him to bits.” Her pup has accompanied her on press junkets and InStyle reports that it is in her contract that Finn must be able to be on the set. She stated, “People in the industry know that when they're working with me, they’re also working with my canine companion.” He even has his own Instagram account, with 4.1 million followers … yes, million! Seyfried was quoted in Us Weekly once that she saw Finn’s willingness to get on her paddle board as a mirror to the animal’s place in her life. “It was surprising, at first, that Finn was so eager to jump aboard,” she admitted. “Now, I can’t enjoy paddling without him. The same can be said of my life.”
Mariah Carey’s Dogs.
Mariah Carey loves to travel with her dogs, and who can blame her? When performing around the globe, spending night after night in hotels away from home, she might want her pampered pets by her side. According to Hello, when an airline refused to allow her dog Jack to travel with her in first class, she hired a car and a chauffeur to usher the canine from New York to Los Angeles. Page Six said that Mariah spends $45,000 a year on spa treatments for her four-legged pals. When she’s allowed, she sends them first class at $2,000 per pup. The publication also noted that her dogs joined when the diva went to California’s wine country. A source told Page Six, “The pop sensation used an on-demand dog-walking service to pamper the pooches with long walks among the vineyards.” Those are some pampered pups. She has the means to spoil her four-legged children, and as Us Weekly reported, that goes for all eight!
Lady Gaga’s Dogs.
Miss Asia Kinney — the French bulldog belonging to Lady Gaga — has lived the good life and so have her other pups, Koji and Gustavo. They travel first class with the A Star is Born Oscar winner. Miss Asia Kinney brings in her own bucks as the “face” of Coach’s line of dog accessories, according to Us Weekly. The “Born This Way” singer’s pup even has her own Instagram account with 245,000 followers. "Asia is very sweet and calm . . . She does not have a personal maid yet, but I adore making her little presents and cooking her homemade puppy food," newly engaged Lady Gaga told Karl Lagerfeld in an interview for Harper's Bazaar.
Lisa Vanderpump’s Dog.
The Real Housewives major breakout star, Lisa Vanderpump, has a dog that all her fans know well. Did you know that Giggy has his own agent (Creative Artists Agency)?! Besides that kind of Hollywood cred, the four-legged Vanderpump drinks out of a Baccarat crystal bowl, eats off of a silver tray (according to ABC News) and wears designer duds. The Pomeranian also has been seen dining with the stars including Jennifer Lawrence at her parents’ swanky LA restaurant. Oh, and those expensive clothes he sports? He never wears an outfit more than once. Part of the reason that the pampered pup is in those outfits all the time is that he has chronic alopecia that makes being exposed to the sun a challenge. One can see why the folks at Bravo would be interested in a canine-centric Vanderpump spin-off, as Us Weekly reported!
Hugh Jackman’s Dogs.
Allegra, a poodle mix, and Dali Jackman, a French bulldog, never want for toys. Hugh Jackman ensures that his pups always have the latest and greatest canine toys that money can buy. Hugh’s pups also prepare for winter with the best coats and even boots! Both come in handy in New York City when their owner is working in Manhattan … which is often, since the X-Men star is set to revive the classic The Music Man on Broadway. Ever wonder how Dali got his name? According to Us Weekly it was because the pup’s smile mirrored the famous painter’s iconic mustache!
Meghan Markle’s Dog.
Guy, a rescue dog who has been with Meghan Markle, aka the Duchess of Sussex, long before she met Prince Harry, got the royal treatment the day of his mom’s wedding. Guy rode with the Queen of England to the wedding. Even Markle’s mother didn’t get to ride with the Queen! Not many dogs have the run of the grounds of Windsor Castle and Kensington Palace. Guy even had a book written about his rags-to-riches story, His Royal Dogness, Guy the Beagle: The Rebarkable True Story of Meghan Markle’s Rescue Dog. Her passion for the canines of the world doesn’t end with her own. Us Weekly found that she has routinely advocated for the adoption of dogs, versus buying from breeders.
The Beckhams’ Dogs.
Soccer stud David Beckham and his wife Victoria Beckham have four pups. They own Olive and Fig — a Cocker Spaniel and English Cocker Spaniel — a French bulldog named Scarlet and an English bulldog named Coco. For Christmas 2018, the retired footballer posted a picture of him with Fig draped in a Supreme x Louis Vuitton blanket. The pup’s blanket cost around $7,000. It appeared to be Victoria who first pushed for pets in the couples’ life. “When I was pregnant, I just wanted to get lots and lots of animals,” Victoria was quoted in Us Weekly.
George Clooney’s Pig.
Max Clooney became pretty famous when his other half, George, was a swinging bachelor. The pot-bellied pig lived in luxury in George’s mansion for 19 years before he died in 2006. Max had lived quite the life, even going for rides in John Travolta’s private jet. He was also the reason his Oscar winner dad George Clooney dumped a girlfriend. Reportedly, the gal (said to be model Céline Balitran, by The Guardian) suggested that the pig sleep outside and his master decided the girl had to go, not the piggy. Hey, George is not alone in the love of the equine. According to Life & Style, Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus also love pig pets.
Katy Perry’s Cat.
Katy Perry first introduced the world to her feline friend, Kitty Purry, in her “I Kissed a Girl” video. During her California Dreams tour, she had a blow-up version on the stage with one of her dancers dancing in a Kitty Purry catsuit. Kitty Purry’s life is often chronicled on Katy’s social media accounts — including one shot of her enjoying room service at a luxurious hotel with her owner. Kitty Purry was nominated for a Teen Choice Award for best celebrity pet but ultimately lost to the Obamas’ dog, Bo. People reported that Katy even named Kitty to be the CEO of her company. Kitty was also the inspiration for Katy’s perfume, Purr. “I’m a bit obsessed with my cat,” Katy was quoted over at SoPurrFect.com. “She’s my substitute boyfriend.”
