Best Dog-Gone Day Event
Updated: Jul 4, 2021
A day full of sun, fun, friends and dogs! What a perfect way to spend the day.
I had a cute little photo booth setup with my pet photography business Pets R Family, and I was offering free photos for this amazing event. I was a little nervous because I wasn't sure how all the dogs would do in such an over stimulating place with lots of noise, smells, people and other dogs.
I tried to be as prepared as possible with with treats, noise makers, and little tricks I learned throughout varies pet photo shoots.
Not all dogs respond to the same thing. They all have their own unique personalities and what they like and don't like. I believe all dogs can shine in front of the camera and have a beautiful picture taken but, dogs will be dogs so I have to be prepared for all kinds of situation.
The breed, age, training level, temperament, personality and health problems all play a factor in how dogs respond to situations, people, places and other dogs. It's important to pay close attention to the dogs body language when working with them. No one want's to get bitten by a dog or have a picture of their dog looking scared, sad, afraid, angry, nervous and the list goes on. Most people want cute, happy, funny, curious, playful, loving and adorable pictures of their dogs they love so much.
When working with dogs it is very important I stay clam, relaxed, happy, positive, patient and compassionate, because dogs can sense peoples emotions. Even with a busy, kind of hot day, I needed to make each dog feel comfortable, safe, happy while getting their attention even with so much going on around us.
Here are all the amazing dogs I had the opportunity to photograph at the best dog-gone day event.
