The Perfect Santa Paws Picture

RavenSantaSince reading my last post I know that you have all marked your calendars to get your dog’s picture taken with Santa Paws, but HOW do you get your pet to sit a calmly as Raven did? Well, here are a couple of tips that should help you have the perfect picture with Santa.

First of all, exercise your dog before going to your photo session. Take them for a long walk or play a game of fetch. By using up some of its energy your dog will be able to listen better in a new environment full of distractions.

Give your dog a potty break before your photo session. You don’t want Fido to put himself at the top of Santa’s naughty list because he couldn’t hold it any longer.

Allow your dog to sniff and greet before you take the photo. From the dog’s perspective Santa looks a little odd.

The best way to get the perfect puppy picture with Mr. Paws it us utilize your dogs obedience. Put your dog in a ‘sit/stay’ or ‘down/stay’ by Santa so you can easily get out of the picture.

Ask the photographer which way they want your dog to look, then move to that area. Your dog’s head will follow you. You can also use treats or toys to keep their attention.

Once the photo shoot is done, reward your dog!

If you need help getting Fido ready for his picture with Santa Paws, or any other photo session please contact us at Good Dog Camp.
