We just absolutely love Tik Tok - there’s so many utterly hilarious videos of dogs, and some cute ones too.
It can definitely become a bit of a rabbit hole though. One minute you’re watching a dog appear to fly a broomstick, the next thing you know you’ve been scrolling for hours.
But before last year, lots of us had barely used the video-sharing app.
The pandemic propelled its popularity with 315 million installs of the app in the first quarter of 2020 alone. Lockdowns across the world meant people gravitated towards the app for light-hearted entertainment to fill their time.
It now has 689 million active users worldwide, including many notable doggy accounts.
With 11% of dog owners admitting to creating a profile exclusively for their pet it’s no wonder many of these pet influencers have taken to Tik Tok.
In fact, the hashtag #dogsoftiktok has 63.9 billion views and #petstsoftiktok has 21.5 billion.
While posting cute videos of your pet may seem like a fun hobby, it’s a big business with many creators earning thousands of pounds for their content.
As a result, Write from the Heart decided to break down 10 of the biggest dog stars on the platform to find out how much they could be raking in.
The richest dogs on TikTok are a trio of pooches who earn a fur-tune of up to £7,113.89 per post. And with 9.9 million followers and 92.3 million likes, it’s not hard to see why.
@azchpn features three star pooches, toy poodle Panna and Chihuahuas Azuki and Chocola. All three are absolutely adorable.
The trio also have their own YouTube account.
@whataboutbunny can talk! Her owner, Alexis Devine, is teaching Bunny how to speak by using augmentative and alternative communication devices.
With 6.6 million followers and 140.2 million likes, Bunny can rake in up to £4,543.71.
She even has more likes than Miley Cyrus.
This pooch is such a cutie and can often be seen wearing some absolutely beautiful outfits. In fact, @minging888 always chooses his own outfit!

Fun fact about Boomer - he can do the Conga!
Hilariously named after what her owner calls ‘resting bish face’, we think Maddy, AKA @littlemissfurious, is beautiful.
Her owner plays on her looks with videos seemingly making fun of Maddy’s angry face.
