2. Fat Tony | English Bulldog

Fall in love with the adorable, drooling birthday boy (he just turned 2 this week!) - Fat Tony the English Bulldog! 

Fat Tony loves a good self-deprecating drooling joke and you’ll find yourself falling more and more in love with his gentle eating videos, stylish outfits, and relatable dog mom videos too. The fan art Fat Tony receives will never be enough to capture his incredible cuteness. 

Fat Tony is also the King of “Weirdo Wednesdays” which highlights his silly personality and is incredibly relatable to all dog owners! Doggos has had the pleasure of working with Fat Tony who hosted a giveaway for our Howliday Market last December garnering over a thousand entries!

How We Chose the Stars

Wondering how we chose our list of top dog influencers in Ontario this year? Here are some of the factors we considered to help make our decision:

Community Visibility: Whether it’s a sub-community (hello drag queen impersonation and Harry Potter fans), or sharing information, (helpful dog-friendly locations!) spotlighting different niche accounts to reach more communities is something we love to do. 

Community Engagement: We believe that an active community is super important! We looked at which accounts have consistent and high engagement from their community (likes, views, reshares, and comments)

Personality: A stand-out personality - that little je ne sais quoi that makes people fall in love with their furry friend again and again.
