Today we got the honor of interviewing Jeanette (Jess'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?

Sandbæk Håland: I don't really consider myself a dog influencer - we just share our adventures and people happen to enjoy following along - which is great! Since I started using Instagram my dogs have always been in focus, since I competed actively in agility and now when all my dogs are retired and we enjoy an active life in the great outdoors. They are the center of my life, and happy that others can also enjoy their company, experiences and joy!

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

Sandbæk Håland: Turns out people love seeing Jess running next to me when skiing! To many it is very exotic.

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

Sandbæk Håland: Not at all, Instagram is more of a photo album/place to collect memories for me. We just do our thing, film it every now and then and post when I feel like it. No particular strategy.

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

Sandbæk Håland: Surprisingly little! Which is good. Of course, there are some that say "poor dog" etc, but a border collie is made to run and enjoy life - not to be locked up in a flat or be on a couch all day. I know my dogs are living their best lives. I think there is a reason why they get so old. Jess is 9, Tequila 13 and Max 18. Still active and happy dogs enjoying outdoor adventures on their terms.

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

Sandbæk Håland: Be authentic! Be you, and don't let what you think others want to see dictate what you post.

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

Sandbæk Håland: My dogs are my life. They've been essential throughout my whole adult life as competition partners in agility. They have taken me around the world, and now it is my turn to take them around in their senior days. They are my faithful companions always ready for fun adventures - or snuggling up together.

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?

Sandbæk Håland: The viral video of Jess running into the sunset was also one of my favorite moments. We were all alone in the mountains and enjoyed the sunset as usual when the colors suddenly exploded. It was such a beautiful moment. I held my phone to film it and capture it for myself but didn't really look at it until after (which is often the case). I focus on enjoying the moment through my own eyes rather than "having a shoot". My phone is always with me and easy to grab when moments like this happen by surprise. That day will stay with me forever. I've had a rough time, but moments like that with my dogs made life worth living! Happy that others could feel the same peace and joy when watching our moments.

What is your favorite thing about being a dog influencer?

Sandbæk Håland: I don't consider myself a dog influencer, we're just us, and people happen to enjoy what we do :) The favorite part of getting many followers is all the positive feedback from others sharing what our videos mean to them. Many get inspired to get out and be active with their dogs. Some also find peace and strength that helps them keep going in difficult situations. I have been told one of my videos saved someone's life. I am so happy we can make a difference. We've gotten new friends all over the world, which I appreciate a lot!

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

Sandbæk Håland: We keep on skiing and enjoying the outdoors, and see where it brings us :)
