Puppy Christmas

Here's my latest video! I released it 5 days ago, and in that time it has gotten 1.5 million views, and it's been on what seems like every national television network, including CNN, NBC, and ABC! :) Here it is!



As far as the making of this video goes....

I really wanted to make a Christmas video for my youtube channel, and I was having a hard time coming up with an idea. While I jumped onto facebook, one of my friends, Xan, had posted pictures of her 4 little puppies she was trying to sell... Then I started thinking about how it seemed like a perfect fit for Christmas.

With my youtube videos, I generally try, not always, but generally try to come up with ideas that the majority of people will share, which makes them "go viral", and with puppies/animals, they are always something that people share.

So I jumped onto youtube and googled "puppies", and every video that came up had several million hits, so after I did my research/homework on the youtube puppy market, it seemed like if I threw in Christmas, it would help that much more.

As I was trying to think of how I could have them a part of Christmas, the whole idea of the story came in, with them in a Christmas present. Right after that I contacted my friend Xan, who said she would love to help me with letting me borrow her puppies.

I then would need a house that I could film in, that would feel like Christmas, so I posted on facebook that I needed a certain kind of house (I posted examples of other houses). Several people volunteered their house. I checked out several of them, but the one that fit perfect was donated by the Dyer family.

So I went to their house to scout it out that very day. I had only met the Dyer family briefly at a restaurant one day, so just by hardly knowing them, they were super helpful and willing to help in any way they could.

That night I went to Walmart and spent 75 dollars on Christmas things, like wrapping paper, stockings, and ornaments. The great thing about the house we were using though, is it was already decorated perfectly.

The next evening I got a couple of my friends to come help with the shoot. We wrapped up a bunch of fake presents, and Xan came with her puppies. We then filmed for a couple hours, and called it good. The puppies ran out of energy in the first 45 minutes, so then we had to improvise a little after that to help them have energy. They say that the 2 hardest things to work with, with movies is children and animals, and yes, that was definitely the case.

I then spent a couple days editing the puppy video. I then sent it to one of my composers, Elton Luz. He then had two days to compose the music. I gave him full creative freedom with the music, so he came up with his own original Christmas song.

We then released it the following day, and that's the story of how the "Puppy Christmas" youtube video came out :)

  7. How can you differentiate effective protection dog training from say “protection sport training”? In other words, how can you be sure that you buy a dog that will indeed protect you and your family, in all circumstances, rather than a dog that requires a set environment and formal process but which would fail to protect you in real-life situations?
