7 Tips On Taking Winning Dog Pictures

Dog Pictures are adorable!

It’s a fact that we must all face in life. There is nothing cuter than dog pictures. But, getting Rover to sit still can be harder than getting him to take a bath! Here are seven tricks to capture adorableness.

When my Aunt first started her grooming business, she decided to include a couple extra services to each groom. One of which is to include dog pictures! It never ceases to amaze me how she can get a perfect photo no matter the personality or age of the dog. You can check out her amazing photos at https://petitepetgrooming.net/puppy-pictures.  Here are the best tips on how to capture raw adorableness!

 

  1. Before you do anything else for your dog pictures, you need to set up. Have your choice setting props etc. already there before your pooch arrives on the set.
  2. Be calm. Don’t fret over the little stuff. Your pup will be able to sense it and it might scare or unnerve him/her. Nothing in life is going to be perfect. There is no use stressing about small details. Perhaps try some calming tips. Here is a website devoted to the subject matter: http://thepeacefuldog.com/how-to-teach-your-dog-to-chill-out/  Aunt Lynn uses a blueberry facial to help the dogs feel at peace.
  3. Hold a distracting toy near the camera. . . your dog will look at the camera, if only for a few seconds. Make sure to always have something interesting to look at. Snap, snap you have some attention-getting dog pictures.
  4. This one might seem a bit obvious but don’t try to photo capture an unhappy pooch. It will not go well. Only try this with a happy, well-fed doggy.  Try to choose a time when your pooch is well-rested, well-fed, and clean.
  5. Make sure your pup is comfy. No one likes getting their photo taken in a scratchy sweater! Especially not man’s best friend. If a dog is uncomfortable he/she will not sit well for photos. If you wouldn’t do it, don’t try to get your dog to do it. Accessories are fine as long as they are comfortable. Feel an item to make sure it won’t bother your dog’s skin.

  6. Know thine own pet. Know what your pup can do and will do. You know your fur baby better than anyone. Do collars irritate your dog’s neck? Don’t use them. My Aunt Lynn learns the personality of every single dog she works with. This is a necessity for getting the best photos possible!
  7. Have patience! Photographing anything live is the hardest type of photography. Your Furry Friend needs to be shown a little grace when posing. Modeling is hard work!
