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?

Irena: Cookie's Journey to Becoming a Dog Influencer

Cookie, my adorable corgi, has always been the star of our home with her big personality and playful antics. One day, I posted a video of her doing her signature "corgi flop" on my personal Instagram, and it went viral. Inspired by the overwhelming response, I created an Instagram account just for her: @Corgi.Sweet.Cookie.

Starting the Journey

I began sharing Cookie's daily life—her morning stretches, playful antics, evening walks, and cute outfits. People quickly fell in love with her quirky behavior and joyful personality. As her follower count grew, I connected with other dog owners and influencers, learning how to create engaging content.

Collaborations and Opportunities

Cookie's growing popularity attracted collaboration offers from pet brands. We partnered with companies that aligned with our values, from stylish collars to tasty treats. One memorable collaboration was a charity event for a local pet shelter, which saw incredible support from Cookie's fans.

The Impact

@Corgi.Sweet.Cookie became a source of joy and inspiration for many, with followers sharing how Cookie's posts brightened their days. What started as a fun experiment turned into a fulfilling journey, creating a community of dog lovers and spreading happiness through the adventures of a charming little corgi.

What do you think sets your dog apart from other dogs on social media? What makes them unique or particularly interesting to your followers?

Irena: Cookie's playful personality and signature "corgi flop" move set her apart from other dogs on social media, captivating followers with her unique charm and endearing antics. Her adventurous spirit and joyful expressions consistently bring smiles and brighten the days of those who follow her.

How do you come up with ideas for your dog's posts and content? Do you have a specific creative process?

Irena: No, very random and natural.

Have you ever faced any challenges or negativity on social media, and how have you dealt with it?

Irena: No, everyone is very lovely to us ✨🦊

What advice would you give to someone who wants to start their own dog influencer account or share their dog on social media?

Irena: Do not repeat the hype videos, just create something that is related to your pet and is organic to your style.

How has your dog influenced your life outside of social media?

Irena: Lots of fun daily, lots of walking and chilling time together in the evening when watching a TV show. More life work balance now in life.

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?

Irena: All the time! One time, a pony bit her nose, and we caught it on video—it's hilarious.

What is your favorite thing about being a dog influencer?

Irena: Getting positive comments from pet lovers, meeting our followers on the streets of Gent and getting free goodies.

Lastly, what's next for you and your dog on social media? Any exciting plans or projects in the works?

Irena: Create a more structured insta marketing approach to keep consistent growth.
