Today we got the honor of interviewing Deniz (Daisy's Human). You can find a direct link to their Instagram here.

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?

Gunsav: I've always enjoyed watching funny dog videos on Instagram and used to share them with my partner and friends. When I adopted Daisy, I couldn't resist sharing her goofiness on social media. She's not just pretty but also very special to me. It was surprising to see the high engagement we got in such a short time, which made me realize I was onto something right by capturing her adventures on video.

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

Gunsav: Daisy is hands down the most well-behaved dog I've ever known. She's not just a pet; she's family, and her sweet, shy face lights up my world every day. There's something incredibly pure and genuine about her expression, like her eyes are windows to her soul. I've never come across a dog with such expressive eyes before. It's amazing how our followers seem to feel the same way—they can't get enough of her cuteness either. Despite her online fame, Daisy's still a shy dog at heart. I reckon if she ever found herself surrounded by a crowd of 7K people, she'd be in for quite the surprise!

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

Gunsav: "I spend a lot of time watching reels for inspiration, and I've recently developed a habit of bookmarking anything that I find useful, especially those with funny music and sounds. Whenever I'm with Daisy, I make sure to have my phone handy to capture any spontaneous and hilarious moments. Right now, everything feels very organic and unplanned, but I can see us becoming more structured and scripted in the future, given the exciting ideas I already have brewing. I'm always taking down notes for future reference, and I enjoy planning ahead as much as possible.

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

Gunsav: Oh, absolutely! It was honestly quite unexpected. We had one video go viral, and suddenly, the comments started pouring in. We gained thousands of followers in just one week, which was mind-blowing. Sometimes, if I feel it's necessary, I'll try to explain my point of view and educate people. But then I realize, some folks seem to have a lot of free time to leave negative comments on random videos. That makes me question if it's worth my time to engage, so I often choose to ignore them. Thankfully, we've only had a few negative comments, and the majority of the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

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

Gunsav: Do it! In my opinion, the dog influencer community is one of the most positive and least toxic groups out there. People adore watching dogs, and it's clear they genuinely enjoy it. Unlike other influencer scenes, there's a refreshing absence of toxicity here. Although I'm new to this journey, it's already been incredibly enjoyable, especially creating content with my special girl, Daisy. Working from home means I spend a lot of time with my dog, and I already had a ton of videos of her on my phone. So why not share the joy and laughter with others?

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

Gunsav: I actually brought Daisy into my life last November, so she's still a fresh addition to my world. I adopted her. Living far from my family and on my own, Daisy quickly became more than just a pet – she's become my family. Being my first dog, she holds a special place in my heart, and I can't help but shower her with love. Her arrival couldn't have been more timely, as I was navigating through a particularly tough period. But having her by my side has truly been a game-changer. With Daisy around, the days seem brighter, and I feel incredibly fortunate to have stumbled upon her when I needed her the most.

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?

Gunsav: Daisy adores running around, and sometimes her adventurous spirit lands her in trouble. There was this one time she gave me a real scare when she darted into the woods, disappearing from sight. When she returned, she was completely covered in mud from head to toe. If you'd seen her, you'd have thought she was a brown cocker spaniel! With her white and lemon-colored fur, she looked like a completely different dog, and she was absolutely thrilled about it. I really wish I had been on social media to capture that unforgettable moment.

What is your favorite thing about being a dog influencer?

Gunsav: In my day job, I work in a creative field, so having this side project is like a bonus round of fun. I really enjoy coming up with funny content and getting creative—it's a different kind of creativity compared to what I do at work, but equally exciting. Since it's not my main hustle, I see it as something extra I can do on the side, especially since it lets me to be with my dog and have fun time together.

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

Gunsav: We're looking forward to boosting engagement and refining our content further. As I mentioned earlier, it's all pretty spontaneous at the moment. So, I'm aiming to introduce a more structured approach to our social media content and explore potential brand collaborations. We haven't had any major brand recognition yet, so I'm so grateful that your team reached out to help fill that gap.
