Mike Holmes Jr.’s Poodle, Caicos
Mike has an absolutely perfect poodle named Caicos. The Holmes and Holmes star has admitted that his pup is a bit of a mess maker, but he wouldn’t have things any other way. In fact, he lists bringing Caicos home as a puppy as his fondest memory he’s made in his home.
Brian McCourt’s “Forever Puppy” Malick

Tiffany Pratt’s Wiener Dog, Poppy
Another adorable pup? Queen of Craft Tiffany Pratt’s sweet dachshund Poppy (follow her here!). Poppy lives in Tiffany’s trademark colourful world. Dogs see a limited spectrum of colours, but if any dog sees the full rainbow, it’s this one.
Poppy Pratt the Weenie
Tiffany’s love for colour clearly extends to doggy decor and accessories. Poppy has the chicest set of dog toys we’ve ever seen, from a Chanel No. 5 stuffie to a toy LaCroix.
Paul Lafrance and His Boxer, Cosmo
Paul Lafrance of Decked Out lives in a house full of ladies, so in 2017, he got a male boxer to add a little extra masculine energy into the mix. Turns out Cosmo is very high energy. Paul says he has “the stored energy of a hydroelectric power station.”
Kate Campbell’s Golden Retriever, Cash
They say dogs start to look like their owners, and that’s certainly true for Cash and Kate Campbell. Cash, or as Kate calls him, “Cash Man,” has flowing golden blond locks just like his mom!
Jo Alcorn’s Jack Russell Terriers
It doesn’t get much more adorable than this! While only one pup is pictured here, Home To Win‘s Jo Alcorn has a twinning set of jack russell terriers. Jo’s all-around dog obsessed, and even has a gorgeous custom painting of her two dogs hanging in her home. She also designed her own line of dog beds and pet accessories.
Colin Hunter’s Best Pal, Quinton
Home to Win‘s Colin Hunter is known for bringing his pup Quinton to all his jobs. Quinton goes to work with Colin every day – he’s part of the crew! He’s by Colin’s side pretty much all the time after hours, too. He even brought Quinton to have his picture taken with Santa last year!
