Canine cash: Dog influencer earnings on TikTok

With so many people turning to TikTok for their dog-fix, we took a look at some of the most popular dog accounts on the platform who’ve amassed millions of likes or followers.

We’ve taken 15 accounts that feature the most popular dog breeds on TikTok and used an earnings calculator to discover how much the pups could be bringing home. The world’s most famous Pomeranian, Jiffpom, has over 20 million followers and could be earning over $12,000 a post! Whereas dogs with around 200,000 followers will average around $100-150 per post. 

Even if your pup isn’t raking in the cash on TikTok just yet, you can still spoil them with the best toys and treats. Check out our best credit card deals here, and please remember that a credit card requires regular repayments. You can accrue hefty interest and fees if you do not pay back the full amount each month.
