How to Make a Video Starring Your Pet


Zak George is one of YouTube's most popular dog trainers and the host of Animal Planet's SuperFetch. His channel, zakgeorge21, contains videos that will help you teach your dog all kinds of tricks, and he actively engages his audience by regularly soliciting dog training questions from the community. Since he's an expert in all things canine and YouTube, we asked him to make a video about the key points to remember when creating videos starring your pet.

Here are some tips from the video and more:

1. Always bring your camera when out with your pet. You never know when your animal is going to do something amazing.

2. Think about what your pet does that's unique -- maybe it's a trick or an irresistible look -- and set out to capture that on camera.

3. Shooting outdoors is ideal, but if you are filming inside, a well-lit environment is important. If you go as far as setting up lights and tripods, make sure your pet isn't spooked by these unfamiliar objects, as large, top-heavy items are most likely to make your dog nervous. Avoid moving these things suddenly or in close proximity to your pet.

4. Capturing an animal in motion can make for a beautiful shot. Therefore, be prepared to be mobile and low to the ground to get the most pleasing footage. If you are going for an action shot, leave the tripod in the closet.

5. Give back to the pet-lovers' community by putting your own training skills to work. What have you taught your pet lately? You've probably done it in a unique way. Think about sharing this with the world.

6. Your imagination's the only limit when capturing your pet on video. Whether it's putting them in real-life scenarios or compiling a short highlight reel, you'll be glad you took the time to preserve these precious memories.
