Animed Direct’s Favourites: Top 10 UK Pet Influencers

Influencers have well and truly become part of our lives. From product reviews, style advice and makeup tips to DIY advice, home decor tips and computer game walkthroughs, there’s an influencer for everything – including pets! Yes, Instagram has turned our furry friends into celebrities, and here at Animed Direct we couldn’t be happier about it!

We’ve rounded up some of our absolute favourite UK pet influencers that we can’t get enough of right now. From kitties to pooches and everything in between, check out our best loved accounts. In no particular order…

  1. Rodney & Mabel  @rodneyandmabel_the_cavapoos   

Nothing fills your heart quite like a photo of a pooch, apart from maybe two adorable pups! Based in Essex, Rodney and Mabel are Cavapoos with bundles of energy. This adorable twosome are sure to brighten up your Instagram feed with cute doggy poses. 

Plus, don’t miss the treat race challenge. We think Mabel might have won this one by a mile…

2. Bob & Boris @bob_boris_cavapoos  

Another double act! Bob & Boris, with their curly fur and cheeky pup grins, are also Cavapoos. From grubby wilderness walks and soggy swims to basking in the sun and posing for the camera, they’re definitely on an adventure that we want to join!

We can’t get enough of seeing these fluffy friends on our feed…

3. Dante @danteduke_thecat

Dante is definitely not a camera shy kitty, and we definitely can’t blame him – he’s simply gorgeous. Based in London, this classy cat isn’t like his feline friends. His owner, @karen.duke1, takes this little chap out for walks on a lead, and he loves a good shower!

We don’t know about you, but we’re mesmerised by Dante’s eyes here…

4. Reggie @reggiethecockapoo

This adventurous pup simply loves paddle boarding and hiking throughout the UK, and has probably seen better views than we have! If you’re looking for a combination of ‘ooh’ and ‘aww’ this is definitely an account for you! 

We can’t get enough of looking at this view, and neither can Reggie!


  5. The Barking Bugle @the_barking_bugle  

These adorable pups are doggy repawters (reporters) from Norfolk! Not only do they post the cutest photos on Instagram they’re also busy creating a dogs’ holiday guide to Norfolk. We’ll take 10 copies please!


  6. Teddy the Shetland @teddytheshetland

It’s not all cats and dogs here! The very handsome boy is Teddy, the Shetland pony. When he’s not frollicking around in fields, he’s playing with his Cocker Spaniel brother Rusty (who is also something of an Instagram celebrity).


 7. Errol the cat

Nope, this gorgeous creature isn’t a fox! Meet Errol, the foxy kitty. If you love to indulge in high quality cat photography, this little supermodel is definitely worth a follow.


 8. 1 Bike 1 World @1bike1world

Ok, so this one isn’t strictly in the UK, but we can’t resist following Nala’s adventures around the world with her human, Dean. This beautiful puss loves having the wind in her fur as they travel from the UK to China, and everywhere in between.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I protect her during the day and in return shes got my back at night ❤ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Woke up with Nala climbing on top of me this morning as if she was spooked and straight away i heard something rustling outside the tent. Usually its just the odd stray dog sniffing around but when i heard the zip of my trailer open i knew we had an unwelcome visitor. I opened my tent slowly and peeked around the corner to find a man standing by my bike pointing a knife at me. Straight away i thought to myself fuck this so i jumped out the tent and started going towards him. For some reason i didnt even consider the knife he had but i was in his face wanting to see inside his bag. He handed me my tool kit and then showed me his tobacco implying thats all he had. I then punched him knocking him to the ground where you could see he got visably angrier so i went back to the tent and got my knife. He mustve been wondering what he disturbed as he started panicking walking away but i caught up with him again, knocked him down once more and my go pro, bike lights and bike pump fell out his bag. He then started running and just to scare him a wee bit more i ran after him a few hundred metres shouting at him! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Very eventful but I came away from the whole thing wishing it had went differently, looking back i think he was homeless giving the smell coming from him and he seen my bike as an opportunity. Im not saying its right what he done but some people fall into a bad way of life and its very easy to look down on them. I dont know his story but it wouldve been nice to sit down and talk to him instead of it all kicking off 🌼 • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #begbie
