It’s that time again, it’s Wednesday also know to us gals as Puppy Baby Mama day and this week we are crushing over someone that is taking over our feeds in the best way possible! If you have been on Instagram at all in the past few months then you have head about The Dog Momager! This Canadian golden retriever dog mom is killing it with amazing dog mom gear, adorable videos of her and her fur-baby and winning the hearts of dog moms everywhere, including us gals. We got the chance to ask Asia, the master behind it all some questions you are all dying to know the answers to in this week's Puppy Baby Mama series. See her amazing answers below!
How did you and your pup find each other?
Although my fiancé and I have always wanted to welcome a golden retriever into our lives, the timing of WHEN it would happen was always up in the air. We are very spontaneous by nature & one day I got a strong urge to search for a golden. I emailed a breeder on a Tuesday and found out there was a male golden available & ready to go home that Saturday & just like that Starsky wiggled his fluffy butt into our lives.
What are your top 3 favorite dog brands and why?
1. Waterpooch - I am obsessed with Waterpooch collars. Starsky would live in the water (or mud) if he could & having a collar that I can rinse, that won’t smell & that is very durable especially for a water dog is key for me. We practically use it every day because he is that dog that somehow can also sniff out that one small muddle in the field.
2. Canadapooch - Another Canadian company that creates some incredible cute & stylish doggo clothing. I am obsessed with their raincoats, especially living in Raincouver, I mean Vancouver. Their new spring line is everything.
3. Crumps Naturals - Starsky is on a raw diet & it is very important to me to ensure he is getting quality treats. I really love that Crumps Naturals stick with very minimal ingredients, & do not include any preservatives/additives. Starsky goes crazy for them, he’s been known to touch the floor with his drool string when these treats come out.
What is the perfect day date with your pup like in your city?
Without sounding bias, I feel Vancouver is the best dog city in the world, it has so much to offer! Our perfect date in the city would definitely include waking up and heading to the forest. There are so many trails just a short drive away & starting your day in nature really sets the perfect mood for the day. After our forest walk, Starsky is usually covered in mud from finding all the puddles so we take him to the beach & let him romp around, dig in the sand & swim in the ocean. Vancouver has a ton of dog-friendly patios, so after he swims his heart out, we usually go to a patio and have a bite to eat, while Starsky gets all the love from people passing by.
What is your best advice to build social accounts?
My best advice is usually not what people want to hear. Everyone always wants to have a system to follow and the 5 steps to successfully building out a doggo social media account. Although I have a few tips people can follow I feel the most important piece is to make sure to HAVE FUN with it. No stress, no comparing, no judgement, just focus on the smiles your pups vids/pics will bring to the world. I feel once you get clouded by the other stuff, building the account isn’t FUN anymore, and instead of being an enjoyable outlet for you, it becomes a source of stress. I feel that small obvious piece has been a HUGE component to my success. The day I stop having fun with Starskys account, is the day Starskys account will no longer thrive.
Who are your favorite dogs or dog moms to follow?
There are too many to name. Starting Starsky's account has opened the door to this incredibly supportive community of dog parents who have turned into friends. At the end of the day, we are all the same. We are all just crazy ass dog moms, who take way to many photos of our pups, use Instagram as a timelines for our doggos life & ultimately just want to share the love & happiness our doggos bless us with, with the world. Before Starsky, I followed @kono_in_orlando & was obsessed with the account. It made my heart happy before I had my own doggo.
Some other doggo accounts I am loving:
