About Wildside

Seven years ago, I was on a mission to find durable dog gear with adorable designs for my first dog Jib. Standing in the store with my Jib, I was disappointed by the lack of options. Jib deserved gear as charming as he was! Fast forward to today, and I'm thrilled to invite you to join our team. We're crafting dog gear inspired by our pack and adventures together. Are you ready to spread the word and help fellow dog parents discover our products? Let's make tails wag and pups everywhere smile! 🐾 Join us and let's make a difference together! Candi

Visual Tips

For Videos:

  • Take advantage of natural light , sun glare and avoid harsh shadows.
  • showing how to put on and take off the harness.
  • Include a clip of getting your package
  • Edit out any silence or parts of videos that takes a while to get to the points. Cut cap is a great tool to use by using the split option.
  • For onscreen text, use a style that is easy to read and our brand colors
  • Shot outside when the season allows for it-- we love see pups in action.
  • Keep the background clean and clear of clutter without taking away any uniqueness and personality of your space
  • Avoid including other brands while shooting with Wildside products

For Photos:

  • Capture your dogs personality
  • A mix of steady photos or photos of dog in action
  • Close up with product, imagine the photos being shown to other dog parents on how to use the product.
  • If you are able to get help, photos of you in action with our dog gear. For example: a walk in the park, hikes, out in the city, getting coffee etc.
  • Allow some negative space but not too much usually at the top left/right used for text.
  • If you received all three products: a photo with all 3 products. Harness photos showing the front/back/side. Leash photo: showing how you are using the traffic handle. Dog Collar: showing the logo clearly. Make sure the collar designs shows clearly.

When You Get Your Products

  • Be sure to adjust the harness where it is not too loose. Tighten to the point where you can still slip two fingers underneath comfortably.
  • Don't use the products excessive before you start filming your content
  • Don't show your address or any personal information
  • Do adjust and tuck any loose straps hanging off the harness

✅ Content Examples: Click on the text on each one to show the link for the video examples.

📹 Showing how to put on harness: a good hook, a problem and solution with product demonstration

📹 Showing dog gear in action: human and dog bond, problem and solution, showing the excitement of the dog.

📹 Showing the product clearly they just got in the mail: Showing how to use on dog, talked about key points and showing the product in action with walking outside.

📹 Powerful hook to catch attention the first 2 seconds: Showing the owners face so it is relatable to other dog owners, repeat the brands name clearly, talk about the promo if there is one ( right now it is the new Arctic Summit Collection) add some FOMO such as: don't wait they are selling out fast.

📹 A brieft demo with the product talking about why they made the change. Your example could be: I wanted a dog harness that was more durable and not cheap like my other one. Talked about the key points and used fast forward putting on the harness to get to the point which is walking.

📹 Talking about why they prefer using the dog harness over a collar. You can use this for going on a hike example: talk about the control handle and how you can keep the dog close for control or help them with a rock scramble. Showing the handle being used as one of the key points. Another key point would be how easy it is to get the harness on/off with the neck buckle. For the third point you can pick any of the pick points from above or you can talk about the unique/vibrant designs that's not boring.

📹 An example of how the lighting should look inside. It looks like they have a light source to brighten up the filming. They provided what kind of harness it was, ours is called the Click N' Go Harness. They also compared and said " no more cheap harnesses" that means they upgraded to something better. They talked about 2-3 key points in the video. The start of the hook they started off with a question. She talked at a perfect speed and if you listen there is no deadspace between any of the lines.

📹 From ordering to unboxing, we don't really have pretty poly bags but you can use this as an example of an item arriving, having your dogs fit in to them. Show an example of hooking the leash to the harness, getting the tag on the collar and headed out side for a walk or adventure.

Apps & Tips


  • For editing we like using Capcut, this app is free and easy to use. If you need some with this app, Youtube is a great place to learn. A feature we use a lot is 'split' this cuts out any dead idel time in your clips.
  • When exporting from Capcut use these settings: 1080P and no Capcut watermark.
  • Facebook Ads library to look for inspirations
  • Tik Tok Creative Center:


  • Think of a skit and write it out line by line
  • Film with no voice first and use voice over after. So this way you don't have to record again if you made a mistake.
  • Write down each scene with the line to make sure it will fit size wise. What I have noticed in the past is sometimes I'll talk too much and not enough time for the scene that is only a few seconds.
