Elvis Presley’s Graceland house has been open for excursions since 1982 and whereas the upstairs is off-limits, there are some downstairs rooms that followers seemingly haven’t visited.

During a dwell digital tour of the mansion beforehand took half in, we had an opportunity to see inside The King’s “dog collars closet” and uncover what it is used for immediately.

Downstairs close to the Jungle Room, there’s this small closet and hanging up inside are the unique canine collars of Elvis Presley’s pooches.

Just just like the contents of drawers across the house, what was discovered by the employees in 1982 largely stays the place it was found.

Our tour information, on-site archivist Angie Marchese, commented on the collars: “I love it because it’s so authentic, it’s so real.”

During his lifetime Elvis had various canines. According to Graceland’s official web site: “He had a Basset Hound named Sherlock, Great Danes named Brutus and Snoopy, and Edmund, a Pomeranian he gave to his Aunt Delta, because the two bonded so quickly. Get Lo, a Chow, was another of Elvis’ dogs. He was once flown to Boston on Elvis’ small Jetstar plane to get treatment for a kidney ailment. He stayed in Boston for three months as he was treated, and then was flown home, where treatment continued. Sadly, Get Lo didn’t make it. Elvis also had dogs he named Whoosh, Oswald and Michael Edwards, named after Elvis’ character in It Happened at the World’s Fair.”

Additionally, in 1956 Elvis gave his mom Gladys a tiny canine referred to as Sweet Pea and at Christmas 1962 Priscilla acquired a poodle pet named Honey.

Today the canine collars closet is used as a utility room, with spare lightbulbs and breaker containers saved inside.
