We all know that cute pet videos get the most attention on social media. So, do you want a cut of the action? I happen to know a secret that will help.

The trick to making a potentially viral cute pet video is simple: get on your pets level. This does require laying on the ground!

Two things will happen when you do this: your pet will be more trusting and more active and you will get better shots. To get your pet to look in a certain direction or make a certain face, use sounds you know they respond to. One videographer suggests shrieking like a monkey.

Of course, there are exceptions, like unbelievably amusing behavior. So keep shooting anything. If you have a shy or quiet pet, you may be out of luck. otherwise, have at it and don't forget to share so we can help it go viral!
