Best in Show: Presenting Our 10 Favorite House Tour Pets
Over the years, our House Tours have shown how people live comfortably when they truly love their homes. Many of these houses may have a human’s name on the lease or deed, but it’s the four-legged residents who call the shots. Taking our inspiration from realtor.com’s “Pets at Home” video — where we see real pets in real homes they love — we’ve looked back through House Tours history and awarded our pet superlatives!
Like Toby, from Boston (pictured at top):
Superlative: Most Resourceful
Where a human might see only an expensive mid-century modern chair, Toby sees a wicker-and-rope scratching post.
Congrats to Toby and his nine fellow alumni on their superlatives!
Superlative: Biggest Foodie
Her Logan Square apartment is full of sunny spots for laying around, but the sweet spot is at the table.

When your dad co-owns the hippest DIY garage slash coffeehouse slash motorcycle lifestyle goods in town, you’re just going to have to deal with everyone wanting a ride.
Humans: Ulises & Melissa
Superlative: Best Traveled
Don’t be fooled by the basket; Siddharta’s Moorish and Spanish surroundings reflect his worldly tastes.

Otto leaves the flash for others, choosing instead to make a big statement in white on white.

Superlative: Best Dressed
You can’t own a classic cocktail set and not wear a bowtie.
