The lavish Essex home follows a simple yet stylish interior throughout.

His kitchen and living space feature pristine white walls and wooden floors.

The open space boasts also boasts a white dining table, grey leather seats and a brown textured sofa that he can sit back and relax on with his fury friends.

Moving upstairs, the master bedroom has a king sized bed with navy quilted bed frame - big enough to fit the whole clan on.

Pete has kept to the same colour scheme upstairs but opted for a grey painted wall and a cream carpet for his personal space.

His garden is the perfect place for Eric and Peggy to run around in and they even have their own patio to lie on to make sure that they get the best belly scratches.

The back yard also has a feature wall that contains stones locked into wired containers, which is perfect backdrop for Pete's edgy modelling snaps.

The animal lover has publicly supported various animal charities, including the likes of the RSPCA since becoming a well-known name - and even refers to himself as "the dog whisperer of Essex"

Pete admitted that his love for dogs is so strong he even prefers to them people.

He told The Sun back in 2018: "I can't imagine my life without dogs anymore. I am kinda the dog whisperer of Essex.

"My two dogs are like my kids. Whether you've had a good day or a bad day, you're guaranteed to get unconditional love.

"If I could I'd have one hundred million dogs. I've just moved house, so I've got quite a bit of space now, so there is room for a few more."

Pete used to live with his three dogs, but sadly his French bull dog Ernest passed away in 2016.
