Ariana Grande has some competition on the attention-grabbing front – from her dog Toulouse.

The 22-year-old singer has made a name for herself with her stunning looks as well as her vocal talents since shooting to fame in 2013.

But now it seems she has some competition on the modelling front – from her pet pooch.

However, Ariana isn’t too jealous, instead telling followers on Instagram that she is thrilled with her pup’s new role.

“Sooooo I wasn’t kidding.@coach #coachpups I’m so incredibly excited to have my lil baby Toulouse starring in the Coach Pups campaign and to partner with Coach in efforts to protect pups from cruelty and harm, a cause most near and dear to my heart (sic),” Ariana wrote. “So thankful to@Coach for their generous donation to NKLA, a Best Friends Animal Society Initiative to make LA the nation’s largest no-kill city by 2017. proud of my babe, Toulouse-Omnt y goosessss. from rescue to runway!!! I love you with all my heart.”

The campaign was styled by Karl Templer and sees Toulouse wearing a black collar while posing alongside the Ace bag from Coach’s upcoming fall line.

"I'm so excited to have Toulouse starring in the Coach pups campaign and to partner with Coach in their efforts to protect animals from cruelty and harm," Ariana said in an official statement.

The canine, a Beagle-Chihuahua cross, was chosen to appear in the new Coach Pups campaign after Lady Gaga’s pooch Miss Asia Kinney starred in a previous one. Coach also announced recently that Miranda Kerr’s Yorkshire Terrier Frankie will be making an appearance in an upcoming advert for their company.
