Bring your pup into the wonderful world of Disney with this new filter! 

For years now, we’ve been transforming ourselves into a dog with filters, and now it’s time for the dogs to have some fun. A new Shapchat filter allows you to animate your dog so that Fido can look like he just stepped out of a Disney movie.

How to Disneyfy Your Pup

To start your dog’s animated transformation, simply open the Snapchat app on your phone. Next to the button you use to take a photo, you’ll find an emoji smiley face which you can tap to open up all of Snapchat’s filters. Once the filter area opens up, click on the explore button, which is depicted by a magnifying glass in the bottom-right corner of the screen. In the search box that appears, type “Cartoon Face,” click on the first icon that appears, and voilà! 

Now, point the camera at your furry four-legged friend and transport them into the magical world of Disney! You can even change the color of the eyes, the size of the eyebrows, and the length of the eyelashes that you place on your dog by tapping on the respective icons on the right-hand side of the filter screen.

Tips and Tricks

It takes a while to teach an old dog new tricks, and it definitely took me a long time to get the hang of the new filter. However, here are some tips to help you get your dog ready for their closeup. 

  • Stay absolutely still. The app works best when your pup stays still. Easier said than done, I know. 

  • Treats make the world go 'round, so hold some treats right next to your phone to help your pup stay focused on the camera.  

  • Forget the angles. We're all used to holding the camera slightly above our faces for the perfect shot; however, if you're trying to take a selfie of your pup with the filter, it's easier if you keep the phone as level to Fido's face as you can get. 

  • Have fun!!
