Today we got the honor of interviewing Jolene Soavge. You can find a direct link to their Instagram here.
Here is their story:
Fi: 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?
KODA BEAR's Human: I decided to become a dog influencer at first for me. I wanted a place where i could have all of koda's cute pictures and milestones. However, after finding out that he is a reactive dog, I felt like it was important to share his story and try to help other people out there who may also be dealing with reactivity
Fi: What do you think sets your dog apart from other dogs on social media? What makes them unique or particularly interesting to your followers?
KODA BEAR's Human: I think that Koda is reactive. We have had a great response on TikTok, especially sharing our reactivity journey and what we have learned. I had never heard about a reactive dog until Koda, and I am finding that it is a big community that needs recognition.
Fi: How do you come up with ideas for your dog's posts and content? Do you have a specific creative process?
KODA BEAR's Human: I see what's out there, but I try to find ones I can relate to. It's hard to keep the ideas going, especially as a full-time student, but I also love taking pictures of koda.
Fi: Have you ever faced any challenges or negativity on social media, and how have you dealt with it?
KODA BEAR's Human: Thankfully I have not yet experienced too much negativity on social media.
Fi: What advice would you give to someone who wants to start their own dog influencer account or share their dog on social media?
KODA BEAR's Human: Don't worry about what everyone else is posting and saying. Do it for you! I love looking back on when I first started and seeing what milestones/what was going on at that time! Make it your own personal time capsule
Fi: 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?
KODA BEAR's Human: I decided to become a dog influencer at first for me. I wanted a place where i could have all of Koda's cute pictures and milestones. However, after finding out that he is a reactive dog, I felt like it was important to share his story and try to help other people out there who may also be dealing with reactivity
Fi: What is your favorite thing about being a dog influencer?
KODA BEAR's Human: My favorite thing is when people comment telling us how much they "needed to hear this today" or how much they relate to what we are saying. Again, this goes back to our "reactivity content", but I love knowing that what we post comforts many people. I love letting them know that they are not alone and that we all have hard days
Fi: Lastly, what's next for you and your dog on social media? Any exciting plans or projects in the works?
KODA BEAR's Human: I have started another Instagram account where I have started doing digital dog portraits! I have been really enjoying it!
Fi: How have you used the info from step, sleep or strain tracking for your dog?
KODA BEAR's Human: I have loved being able to see how many steps he is taking. He is still young, but I want to ensure he is around for a long time, so it has helped me watch his food intake/calories.
