Welcome to the ultimate destination for dog enthusiasts and social media mavens alike. At Dogfluencers, we're passionate about showcasing the best and brightest in the world of four-legged fame.
Whether you're looking for adorable photos, heartwarming stories, or expert tips on how to turn your own pup into a social media star, we've got you covered.
Today we got the honor of interviewing Julie (Henry-noodle'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?
Sun: We had a lot of friends encouraging us to share Henry’s life on Instagram. We were already taking countless photos and videos, so it was easy to post. We ended up finding the most amazing Boston dog community and are so lucky to have made several new life-long friends.
What do you think sets your dog apart from other dogs on social media? What makes them unique or particularly interesting to your followers?
Sun: We will definitely jump on certain trends, but we like to post what is fun and entertaining to us as well. We also really like posting photos and asking followers to vote if it’s a picture of fried chicken or a dog 😂
How do you come up with ideas for your dog's posts and content? Do you have a specific creative process?
Sun: We get a lot of inspiration from what others post and try to personalize reels and posts to what we find cute or silly. As a doodle, Henry often gets fresh haircuts. Pre and post-groom videos are fun to make!
Have you ever faced any challenges or negativity on social media, and how have you dealt with it?
Sun: As a small account, we fortunately have not received a lot of negativity. We are lucky to be surrounded by a great community, and we are just here to have fun 😊
What advice would you give to someone who wants to start their own dog influencer account or share their dog on social media?
Sun: Post what you like rather than what you think others want to see. We’ve spent a lot of time on videos that get almost no views and then also no time on some videos that go viral. You can’t always predict what the algorithm will push. If you’re not enjoying the process, then what’s the point?
How has your dog influenced your life outside of social media?
Sun: We spend so much more time enjoying the outdoors. Hikes, beaches, and national parks are all more fun with Henry. We also try to find as many dog-friendly places to visit because we want to enjoy as much time with him as possible.
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?
Sun: It would probably be any moment that we think we’re capturing Henry enjoying fresh grass by rolling around, only to realize he found poop 😂
What is your favorite thing about being a dog influencer?
Sun: All the friends we’ve made along with an incredibly supportive community. We also love being able to learn so much about dog nutrition along with positive reinforcement training. We’ve found the best treats/chews/food because of the small businesses we follow. We also get great perspectives and advice from our favorite dog trainers.
Lastly, what's next for you and your dog on social media? Any exciting plans or projects in the works?
Sun: Nothing specific! Just our usual slices of life.
