Capturing Your Pet in the Best Photos and Videos

Dog and cat photos and videos have practically taken over social media these days! Three media experts shared their pet photo and video tips with Walkin’ Pets blogger and Marketing Director Lisa Murray on the “Happy, Healthy Pets” radio podcast.

Pet Stars!

Nowadays, there are many social media stars with four paws — or hooves. Dogs, cats, goats, and other pets frequently have tremendous Instagram and Facebook followings. Many YouTube videos of pets have also gone viral.

Walkin’ Pets by notes that many pets in Walkin’ Wheels are particularly endearing and are quite popular! Scooty, voted “Happiest Dog on the Planet” by People Magazine, has a loyal following. Goats of Anarchy has many goats in Walkin’ Wheels and has a very large Instagram presence. Speaking of goats, ChamptheDwarfGoat from New Hampshire, is getting increasingly popular on Facebook! And we can’t fail to mention Facebook’s OscarMadisonNYC, or the_Dotty on Instagram!

These are just a few of the many pets who are known and beloved by the general public. Perhaps this allows people who are unable to have pets to enjoy them from afar. Maybe people need a break from the troubles of the world and just love seeing adorable animals! Or maybe the popularity of so many pets demonstrates how pets are being treated as family members more and more these days.

Whatever the reason, pet photos and videos are FUN! So, join in by taking the best photos and videos of your own pets!
