Podcast Episode 75: The Human Side of Being a Dog Influencer

On this episode we’re getting real… talking about how important it is to be authentic and show the human side of being a dog influencer. Today’s guest talked to me about how she decided to document her dog mommming through social media and blogging, how she uses bookmarks to keep her growing to-do list organized and her tips on creating engaging Instagram stories.

The Human Side of Being a Dog Influencer

Megan Mullins is a dog-obsessed self-taught photographer and the wife of an Air Force pilot currently living in small-town Texas. After adopting her two corgis, Moose and Koda, Megan became obsessed with providing her dogs with the best life possible. She found that socialization, stimulation, exercise, and nutrition all play equal roles in a dogs’ quality of life, so she strives to fulfill each of those aspects every single day.

Currently, Megan is the human behind Stumps and Rumps: a collection of dog-based health, lifestyle, and travel experiences that are intended to inspire healthier, happier, and more fulfilling lives for dogs and their owners.
