Do you believe your dog has Instagram star qualities? See social media potential in your dog? Get your dog up and at it, and with Ways to Make Your Dog Famous on Instagram, help them do just what they were born to do: inspire!

Let’s get started.

Finding Your Dog’s Uniqueness

Every celebrity pet has something unique. Hosico Cat is chubby and cute, with an owner fully invested in him; he puts up tons of unique content with unique equipment. Milperthusky bank on the ultimate toddler-protective-doggy combination and the emotional appeal generated when a cute baby is seen cuddling with a husky. By finding your dog’s uniqueness, you will be in a more suitable position to figure out how exactly you can make your dog an Instagram star. It could be something physical, furriness, or an overall vibe; it could be something creative, you teaming up with them or giving them a unique angle.

Whatever the quirk, animal lovers enjoy nothing more than being able to connect. Make sure your content aims at that specifically.

Posting Consistency

To grow a steady, dedicated following, make sure you post consistently. However, going over the top with the same selfies and a not-so-good caption will not do you any favors. In fact, when we say consistent, we do not mean 40 posts per day. Sticking to one and/or a maximum of two posts per day is best. Post when you know a major chunk of your audience is online. You can figure this out via analytics and Instagram’s business profile features. Once you have found out about all this, all you have to do is post; the dedicated you are to sharing content about your dog with the world, the more frequent new following will become, your old following becoming more loyal.

Get Good With Camera and Video

Sometimes, stopping a dog or any other pet from reaching their full Instagram potential and becoming an Instagram star is this single-file reason: you are not doing it right. Some pet parents are better than others at taking good pictures and recording videos and statuses. The quality of one’s content is also a major contributing factor to becoming famous on Instagram. This is why you need to put in some practice. Get good with a camera, do impromptu shots and practice shots, and learn some intermediate-level video shooting and editing. Aim at accentuating your dog’s qualities and physical attributes with your pictures and videos than simply taking and recording them and putting them up.

Become an Instagod With Hashtags

Hashtags are the secret to steadily increasing your following on Instagram. At first, it did not matter how many hashtags you put up; the more it was, the merrier it was. However, moving forward, Instagram has put some quality control in place, and now not more than 25 hashtags can be used at once. Instagram users have evolved, too, much like the app itself, and people frown at the use of a clutter of hashtags, regardless of inter-relevance, and prefer only a few hashtags. The best of the use #hashtags, like we just did, is by incorporating them creatively like #this. The same principle applies to pet feeds and celebrity dogs.

Use hashtags like #doggos or #puppilicious, whichever term has the most views. Used up in combinations, these hashtags are to expand your reach to relevant people significantly.

Groom Your Pet To Look Their Best

While everyone loves a cute pet, trying to bank in on your dog’s good looks like an excuse to steer clear of your grooming duties makes a bad pet parent of you. Plus, do you also not want your pet to look their best when posing for the camera? Grooming your pet is indeed important for #Instafame. If your dog has a coat, sheer it down to a likable minimum. Make sure you clip your dog’s nails and shampoo them thoroughly when bathing them. Brush the coat, too, before taking pictures and especially before recording videos so that the camera captures your dog perfectly, hair, nail, and face all well-maintained.

Do Collaborations

Team up with other Instagram pets and watch the magic happen as your following, combined with the other’s following, bring you in unique views and hits and even more followers. This also has a lot of creativity potential. One dog’s brand paired up with another’s opens up room to create newer, unique content. Consider an ultimate cat-dog combo or a cats versus dogs video. The possibilities are endless when it comes to pet collaborations.

Endorse Brands

When your dog has achieved some stature on their Instagram, pet brands will reach out to market your product. Or you can reach out to new brands and work together on reaching out to more people. This symbiotic relationship is good for both Instagram pets starting out and brands wanting to increase their overall return. It works pretty much the same as a pet-with-pet collaboration; instead of a pet-with-brand collaboration, you are bound to increase your chances of more collaborations and future prospects.

But be very careful about this, as one bad move will mean one bad campaign, and brands will not be as willing as you might think to let your dog endorse their brand.

That was a wrap on ways to make your dog famous on Instagram. We wish you the best of luck! Follow Pucci Café for more engaging content and all things dogs.

Facts About Animal Homelessness:

  1. Only 1 out of every 10 dogs born will find a permanent home.
  2. The main reasons animals are in shelters: owners give them up, or animal control finds them on the street.
  3. Each year, approximately 2.7 million dogs and cats are killed every year because shelters are too full and there aren’t enough adoptive homes. Act as a publicist for your local shelter so pets can find homes. Sign up for Shelter Pet PR.
  4. Approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year. Of those, approximately 3.9 million are dogs and 3.4 million are cats.
  5. According to the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy (NCPPSP), less than 2% of cats and only 15 to 20% of dogs are returned to their owners.
  6. 25% of dogs that enter local shelters are purebred.
  7. About twice as many animals enter shelters as strays compared to the number that are relinquished by their owners.
  8. It’s impossible to determine how many stray dogs and cats live in the United States. Estimates for cats alone range up to 70 million.
  9. Only 10% of the animals received by shelters have been spayed or neutered. Overpopulation, due to owners letting their pets accidentally or intentionally reproduce, sees millions of these “excess” animals killed annually.
  10. Many strays are lost pets that were not kept properly indoors or provided with identification.
  11. According to The Humane Society, there are about 3,500 brick-and-mortar animal shelters in the US and 10,000 rescue groups and animal sanctuaries in North America.
