From New York, USA, That Pup Stanley is all about living his best #dogsofinstagram life in the country.

Yup, this handsome French Bulldog will leave you with lots of FOMO because cute outfits and fun adventures are how he rolls.


Goofy, quirky, playful, serious, sweet, and “just posing for the camera” are all the sides to this lovable social media canine personality.

Did I mention how the camera just loves him?  Well, Stanley is quite the natural—posing like a pro and showing the furry Instagram universe what a star he is.

Through funny stories about everyday life and adventures, Stanley’s personality will capture your heart—one caption at a time.

“Can I go play in the rain?!  I swear I won’t roll on the carpet when I come back in!  Promise!!!”

And if there’s a hot dog product on the block, you’ll hear all about it from Stanley.

“Obsessed with my new harness and leash set”.

Brilliant content, a quirky personality, and a pretty lovable French Bulldog are all a dog lover needs to see on their social media feed—don’t you think?


All things dogs, That Pup Stanley is the perfect micro-influencer match for pet brands and pet-friendly destinations.

Nika and Kira – @2husketeers – The Adventures of Wisconsin’s Huskies

Nika and Kira - Huskies on Instagram - Pet Influencers

Nika and Kira are two beautiful huskies from Wisconsin. They have the most memorable ocean eyes and a natural model stature. Both huskies love embarking on adventures and posing for the camera while out and about. They are just so naturally photogenic! You can tell that Nika and Kira are inseparable. They look almost identical, but you can distinguish them by the little dot of fur on Nika’s forehead dot and by the mask around Kira’s eye.


They roam all around, always up to something new! Sometimes you will find them posing in meadows of flowers, playing with rainbow paint to celebrate pride, or even exploring mountains and lakes. Even when just sprawled out on the couch they still are ready for their picture-perfect closeup! These two were just made for the spotlight, and the camera absolutely loves them.

You can find the behind-the-scenes of many of their best shots! It is truly interesting to see what went into the perfect image on their feed and to know the story behind it all. Of course, Nika and Kira are complete perfection and must be easy models, but there is no doubt their photographer has massive amounts of talent as well.

The bond between these two is moving; getting to see them on your feed daily and following the fun that they are getting into is definitely worth giving their page a follow!


Nika and Kara love to work with brands as well, and here are a few brands they have previously collaborated with: Stella & Chewy, Petsafe, Red Nose Day, Restropet, and Area for Home.

Ellie is the name of her adorable pup, and Nina found Ellie at a time when she needed a pup in her life the most. Their Instagram page documents the fated pairing between the two.


Ellie is Nina’s love and her little diva that she happily spoils with the best lifestyle and products. Together, they explore pet-friendly restaurants and coffee shops, go on walks, and stay at the best hotels. Their Instagram story is an absolutely heartwarming experience to follow. Their feed is aesthetic, and the theme is a cohesive peach and coral color, truly emphasizing how much of a princess Ellie is!

Ellie was born to be a star, so it makes sense that we love to keep up with her daily life. Seeing Ellie’s cute fluffy face could brighten anyone’s day, so it makes perfect sense why Nina fell instantly in love with Ellie! Their page definitely is worthy of a follow to keep up with the adorable pairing.


Nina hosts a blog where she shares information from her expertise in pet care. “Keeping Your Dog Cool in Summer” and “Games To Play with Your Dog During Lockdown” are an example of a couple of the many insightful articles you can find! As she has over 23 years of experience in this field she certainly has quality wisdom to share on all things pet care!
