We’ve all seen the Instagram accounts for people’s pets, but let’s face it, the dog accounts are generally more popular-and who doesn’t love seeing regular updates about a super cute dog and his/her antics? Everyone is hitting the craze at the moment, and some accounts are more popular than others. Ever wondered why?
There is actually more work than you think that goes into making the perfect pooch account for Instagram, and we’re going to give you some tips on how you can make your doggo Instagram famous!
First, we should look at why people create accounts for their dogs. For some, it’s simply to create a montage of all of the amazing moments they share with their furry friend. For others, it’s a way of making ends meet. Believe it or not, many of these top Instagram accounts for dogs have contracts with large companies and make a decent living from them! This is because of their viewership. Companies are able to advertise through these accounts and pay the account owners very nice amounts of money to do so!
Get a decent camera
We live in an age where poor camera quality is just not tolerated anymore. Most phones and tablets come with exceptional camera quality both front and back, but if you really want to step up your game, it’s a good idea to invest in a decent camera to snap shots of your dog with. Trust us; your fans will appreciate it!
Could you make sure they’re well-behaved?
While we’re sure that your dog is a good boy, we all know that they can be mischievous from time to time. To make your life (and your dog’s life) easier during shoots, it might be a good idea to train them so that they’re not running off halfway through snapping them.
Having your pooch trained is always a good idea regardless of whether you’re going to make an Instagram account for them, as it prevents owner and dog frustration and helps create a lifelong bond between you. If you’re unsure how to train your dog, you should look into pet boarding so that you can rest assured that the training is done correctly.
Give your dog a regular makeover
Nobody likes to see a dirty and ungroomed dog (unless, of course, you catch them rolling in a puddle! ), so it’s important to make sure that your pup gets a regular makeover. Have their fur trimmed and keep them clean so they look their best in their snaps.
Consider buying them outfits
Whose heart doesn’t melt when they see a cute dog? Whether you buy them a collar with a tie or you’re looking to buy them full outfits to wow your fans, you will definitely hit the hearts of thousands if you choose to do this. Many people opt for hats and collars and have large collections of dog clothing so that in each photo, they can keep mixing up their dog’s attire!
Use more than one location for your shoots
Finally, people are going to get bored quickly of seeing your dog running around your living room or garden, so it’s essential to make sure that you have plenty of locations lined up for your pooch to explore. Look into dog-friendly attractions and see if you can snap some pictures that other accounts wouldn’t usually think of!
We know you already think your pup is fantastic – and they are! Use these tips to make your dog into a mini-celebrity, whether you’re choosing to do it for fame or simply to make memories with your dog!
