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?

I am a pet lover, especially when it comes to dogs! I raise healthy, well tempered, and beautiful Siberian Huskies and Pomskies. What inspired me the most in sharing our adventures with others is mostly to brightening other’s days. I know how much a cute or funny pet moment can put a smile on so many other’s faces. I also love to share tips and advice to others about dogs like training, care, health, etc. I want others to to be more aware of how they can best care for their pups as there are many things, even simple things that many do not know.

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

I work full time in raising these precious fur babies. I put so much love, time, and care towards my puppies. I am able to provide amazing puppies to wonderful loving homes. But what sets me apart most, is being a breeder welcomes you as part of the fur family. I am here for any questions, concerns, help, etc. I love the families my puppies go to and am here to help them and their pup succeed!

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

I try to be creative with a cute set up or a scenic background as well as sharing real time and heart touching moments.

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

There are always challenges or people who come with negative comments. I kindly correct them or will simply let it go, move on, and delete the rude comment. I am proud of what I do and do not let others get in the way of that, but also do not let them steal the joy it brings me.

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

Go for it! Everyone loves seeing adorable pet posts! If this is something you’re interested in or find that you love doing, then give it a chance and don’t give up easily due to challenges or negative criticism. Find a good camera and learn how to take quality pictures and videos. This will help improve your content drastically! Find what makes you different and unique compared to others and what it means to you to post about your fur baby.

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

They have become my family. Losing them is one of the hardest things in life. My pets are my world! They definitely have made me who I am as a person, keeping me disciplined, and having a healthy lifestyle. They make my life so much brighter!

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?

There are so many!! But one that sticks out to me the most is watching my little Pomskies play and wrestle with my big husky boys! The little ones think they’re so much bigger. They’ll tackle the husky and show them that they are the big boss dog. It’s the funniest thing to watch!

What is your favorite thing about being a dog influencer?

Getting to know other people and impacting their lives!

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

I am excited to be growing my Pomsky program! I also have a few upcoming husky and Pomsky litters that I am over the moon about!! In the spring, I plan on starting a project that’s been in the plans for a little bit now. I will be building a big doggy play yard. It will basically be my own little dog park at home. It will have obstacles, a kiddy pool, desensitization tools, and will be fully fenced in. I also plan on building one for the puppies for when they’re old enough to have supervised outdoor play time.
