Here is their story:
Can you tell us about your journey to becoming a dog influencer? What inspired you to start sharing your dog's adventures on social media?
Villacampa: We wanted to meet and connect with the corgi community. We also wanted to share our fun adventures - corgi racing, hotel stays, hiking, food recipes, and other dog friendly experiences.
What do you think sets your dog apart from other dogs on social media? What makes them unique or particularly interesting to your followers?
Villacampa: We let them be who they are - rambunctious, confident, silly boys. They are very photogenic and love creating content and being in front of the camera.
How do you come up with ideas for your dog's posts and content? Do you have a specific creative process?
Villacampa: Our schedule involves brainstorming ideas (outfits, recipes, adventures) then we have time blocked off to film and then edit before posting.
Have you ever faced any challenges or negativity on social media, and how have you dealt with it?
Villacampa: A Barstool creator recently said corgis are ugly and specifically called out Tony. The whole corgi community playfully stood up against him.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to start their own dog influencer account or share their dog on social media?
Villacampa: Post consistently. Engage with similar creators. Find your niche.
How has your dog influenced your life outside of social media?
Villacampa: Our lives revolve around the content creation in a fun way. Corgi races at NFL stadiums, fun road trips, connecting with other owners.
Can you tell us about a particularly memorable or funny moment you've had with your dog during one of your photo shoots or adventures?
Villacampa: Being on national television for winning the San Francisco K9ers Corgi Cup. We have been featured on ESPN, Yahoo Sports, and other media outlets.
What is your favorite thing about being a dog influencer?
Villacampa: Spending quality time with our dogs and getting to document it on social media.
Lastly, what's next for you and your dog on social media? Any exciting plans or projects in the works?
Villacampa: More corgi races and dog food partnerships.
