NHL Players’ IG Famous Dogs Live More Lavishly Than We Ever Will

These dogs are flexing for the 'gram.

NHL stars are just like us. They love their pets so much that they make Instagram accounts just for them. In Canada, some of our NHL players with dogs are treating them to a lifestyle we'll never know. While their lives are more lavish than ours, they're so cute that we ain't even mad.

Imagine your every need funded by profession hockey-level paychecks. The doggos on this list live in bigger apartments (and have way more toys) than any of us ever will. 

Many of the NHL's cutest pups even have their own Instagram accounts and are basically influencers. But rather than selling skinny-teas or sugar bear hair gummies, they're flexing their favourite puppy brands.

While the players aren't on the ice, they're at home being the best dog dads to their fur babies. Some dogs ride around in cars that cost five times your salary and some dogs are better at accessorizing than us.

Whether you like your Instagram dogs sleek and stylish of fluffy and full of goofy personality, you'll find one on this list that's living the life you've always wanted.

Give these dogs a follow because it's way harder to be jealous of a dog than people on social media.
