OK, So you wanna be Famous? - Doggy Edition

These days, it seems as though people get way more than their allotted 60 seconds of fame. We’re seeing more and more news stories about social media posts going viral and overnight social media personalities are emerging as celebrities (both on purpose and by accident).

With camera’s literally everywhere it’s not difficult to get caught on candid camera doing something good, bad, ugly, hilarious, or downright embarrassing; but that one embarrassing moment could be your claim to social media stardom!

Can the same be said for Dogs? We think so! A quick search of the internet shows there are 7,000,000 results for dogs; images, articles, and videos. On Instagram we found over 99,000,000 accounts that “belong” to Dogs. Some people’s Dogs have more followers on Instagram then their people do!  There are even Facebook and Instagram Dogs that make more money in a year then their human companions. One such account we found was a Pomeranian pup named Boo that has over 17 Million fans on facebook!  

Now, we know, it takes a ton of hard work and an awesome social media strategy to get 17 million fans; which, let’s face it, not all of us have the time, money, or energy to do. If you’re one of the few that does dedicate your valuable resources to your Dog’s time in the limelight - that’s fantastic and we envy you! If you’re one of the ones currently staring at your four-legged dollar sign (er, I mean Dog…) and thinking your pup has what it takes, we thought we would help you get started by providing you with a couple ideas on how to make your Dog a star! ( all in good fun of course!)

We did an in-depth analysis on the tried and true tactics that have shot some humans into the social spotlight and figured they would do just that with Dogs too!

Here are our Top 5 Suggestions:

I know, this one is kind of obvious, but it seems to work!  Most dogs will hump just about anything so getting great footage shouldn't be that hard!  And...yes that is a Duck! :-)
