A product review is a relativity easy thing to do for most bloggers.
You are provided with a free product from a company in return for your honest opinion of that product. You, or in this case, your dog, tastes it. You take some pictures, and then you write a post about it.
Plain and simple.
Or not so simple in our case.
For me, doing a product review takes planning.
I have to choose a place to conduct the review. I have to choose which dog is going to give me an honest review of the product.
Sometimes I even need to search out an assistant. You know…someone who can assist me in wiping slobber away from my model.
Sweet, sweet Gracie is more often than not that assistant.
Here is a little taste of what it is like to have a seven year old girl for an assistant when you are doing a dog treat review.
First, before we can do anything we HAVE to paint the assistant’s toenails.
This is a must. I mean you never know when your toes are going to be a part of a photo shoot. One must always be prepared.
Next we have to primp the model.
This is another must because the assistant takes her job her job very seriously, and everything must be perfect.
Then the assistant AND the model need to inspect the product.
They must consult for at least 5 minutes and go over every ingredient and then they come up with a gameplan.
Then the assistant has to pause because her model seems to have sprung a leak in anticipation of what is to come next.
Then, about 30 minutes later they are ready to perform the review, which I can not share with you right now, you will have to wait because this is not the product review post, this is the behind the scenes of the product review post.
However, I can tell you that because my assistant did such a wonderful job I allowed her a 15 minute break in between scenes.
She chose to conduct her own product review on the box of cupcakes.
