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 Caitlin (Lulu'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?

Gemmill: I started Lulu’s Instagram the day I brought her home. I didn’t set out to be a dog influencer, but I wanted an outlet to document her life and capture all the memories we’d make together as she grew up. I mean, who doesn’t love baby corgi pictures?

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

Gemmill: My husband and I try to make sure that Lulu lives a well-balanced life, relaxing at home during the week and exploring new places on the weekends, and I think that’s reflected in our social media content. We take her almost everywhere with us, especially when the weather’s nice, and she’s really great about posing for a cute picture just about anywhere.

We also compete in AKC FastCAT (essentially a 100-yard dash) and agility, so I share a lot of our training and competition experiences with our followers who may be interested in dog sports.

Lulu has quite a playful personality, which is reflected in a lot of our content too!

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

Gemmill: I don’t really have a formal creative process, though I am trying to challenge myself to be more intentional about the moments we share with our followers to offer them more value. I look for photo and video opportunities throughout our day, and some days are more interesting than others, but I do try to post every day anyway.

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

Gemmill: We sometimes get some weird comments but honestly, I just ignore them. It’s really not worth engaging with the trolls.

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

Gemmill: Don’t worry too much about going viral or your follower count! Focus on authenticity and making strong connections with others, and growth will follow organically.

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

Gemmill: Lulu has given my husband and me a greater appreciation for the outdoors! As a family, we’ve spent so much time together exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and I now finally understand the appeal of hiking. (Mostly.) I have rediscovered so many wonderful places in our backyard, like the Oregon Coast and the Columbia River Gorge, and we see them through a new lens because they offer Lulu so much adventure and excitement.

We have also made so many great friends in the dog and corgi communities, who we likely would never have met otherwise.

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?

Gemmill: During one of our recent agility trials, Lulu decided that she’d had enough, and would rather visit with some spectators. She abandoned the course (and me) and crawled under the ring fence to say hi to these total strangers and beg for belly rubs. My husband caught it on video, and I still laugh every time I watch it, because it perfectly showcases her outgoing personality.

What is your favorite thing about being a dog influencer?

Gemmill: I love connecting with other dog parents! We’ve found many of Lulu’s relatives and made friends with fellow corgi families, who we likely would never have met without social media. It’s nice to be part of a supportive community.

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

Gemmill: We’ll be competing in more agility and FastCAT trials this year, so our followers can expect to see more of our dog sports adventures!
