First, thanks for deciding to be on my show. You’ll find below all the info you need to know before the scheduled interview.
These interviews are not live. They're filmed, edited, and uploaded to my YouTube channel as unlisted episodes. This means that only those with the link can view the video.
Once the video is completed, I'll send you the unlisted link for any feedback, such as "good to post," or if you wanted anything removed or changed. If so, the changes will be made accordingly, and the new version will be sent to you for approval. I will not publish the episode until you are satisfied with it.
Once the video goes public, you reserve the right to request the video to be taken down at any time for any reason, no questions asked. I want all my guests to be as comfortable as possible being on my show.
These interviews are conducted through Zoom and I will send you the zoom link about 30 minutes before our scheduled filming.
As already mentioned, the interview is conducted through Zoom, but the filming is done separately through a camera or your smartphone. This helps keep a higher quality to the discussions, which keeps people watching for longer.
After filming, you can send me the video file through wetransfer.com or any other file transfer options.
I would suggest having the zoom interview on your computer or laptop and using your phone or camera to film. If you're using a phone, make sure that the camera is filming horizontally and not vertically.
The framing doesn't have to be perfect, but try your best to make it look like any of the examples at the bottom of the page.
From my experience, interviews do better when we base them on specific subjects. Below you'll see a list of some topic ideas, but I'm open to suggestions. In addition, the entire interview doesn't have to be on the one subject, we can cover a few things, but the title to the video will be on a specific subject. So it's important that we start the interview on the decided topic.
1) Dog emotions 2) Dog motivation 3) Operant conditioning 4) Getting a new puppy 5) Factors that affect learning / Learning theory 6) Most common mistakes new dog owners make. 7) Most common mistakes new trainers make 8) The remote training collar 9) Fear and dog aggression 10) Service dog training 11) Training the competitive dog 12) Training for a specific sport 13) Becoming a dog trainer 14) Being a dogs leader 15) Do's and don'ts socializing 16) Dog training tools and equipment 17) How to effectively communicate with your dog or puppy 18) Understanding the importance of confidence-building 19) house and potty training. Confinement 20) How to prevent bad behaviors before they start 21) The importance of playing with your dog 22) Schools for dog trainers
Send me any website, promotional, or social media links you would like me to add to the video's description.
At the beginning of each interview, I like to have a short video play that gives the viewers an idea of who they are about to watch. You can see an example here.
This is optional but also recommended. If you would like this in your episode, I'll need some photos and videos of you training and working with dogs and a bio that I can read for the intro.
If you have a business logo or logo animation that you would like me to play at the end of the interview, be sure to send it to me before the interview.
A Video thumbnail is an image that lets viewers see a quick snapshot of your video as they're browsing YouTube.
Send me a photo that you would like for the thumbnail. You with a dog would be best.
On average, the interviews are between 30 minutes to an hour.
