This Hollywood dog-walker photographs his 'clients' with the nicest cars he can find

Brian Bell’s Instagram account is for lovers of cars, dogs or – ideally – both 


Brian Bell is just your ordinary, friendly neighbourhood dog-walker. 

Only in the friendly neighbourhood where he lives, in the hills of Hollywood, California, the cars that populate the roads and parking lots are not-so-average.

They’re above-average, actually — often way, way so. 

That fact – that the areas he regularly steps out into with his four-legged clients are lined with luxury, classic and exotic vehicles – his innate car nerd-ery makes his Instagram account, @dogsandcars85, also rather above-average.

“I just keep my eyes out for cars I think are interesting and shoot it with whatever dog I happen to be walking,” says Brian. “I’ve always been a huge car nerd going back to a being a little kid and just sitting on the side of the street watching the cars drive by. If I ever see a car I can’t immediately identify, I will obsess over it until I figure out what it is.”

Brian says his clients include everything from “nurses to porn stars to big-time Hollywood managers to business men and women.”

And when it comes to his clients’ pets, well, there’s the black pug, Bubba, who posed in front of this 1936 Ford.

Or, for example, there’s Papi, who is a regular customer and appears to have a thing for the classics.

Sometimes the dogs don’t seem as excited about the experience as Brian is. Like Riley, who was caught mid-yawn in front of a Nissan GT-R.

And other times they look even more stoked on the find.

Anyway, if you live in the Hollywood area, have a dog and like cars (or have a dog that likes cars), you should probably hire Brian. 

At the very least you’ll get photo evidence that your dog is actually getting ample exercise.
