I get it. Your dog is super excited about everything and loves to have fun… that’s probably one of the things you love most about them isn’t it. Don’t worry… I totally understand. None of my dogs have any training. My 2 poodles don’t even know how to sit… and it’s ok.
Most dogs we work with don’t have much training, some none at all. In fact some aren’t even used to walking on a leash. Unfortunately many people think this precludes their dog from having a portrait session… and they just don’t give it a second thought.
The GOOD NEWS is…It’s OK if your dog is a little crazy! In fact it’s better!
Yes, you read that right. IT’S BETTER IF YOUR DOG IS A LITTLE CRAZY. I’ve found happy go lucky crazy dogs do really well in front of the camera and show off their personality really well!
And if their happy go lucky personality is what you love about them, shouldn’t it be exactly what we aim to capture in your session?
Now a few things we might consider.
- It’s always best to make sure the session takes place at a location that allows your dog to be safe and happy. That might be your back yard or other fenced in area if your dog wants to go off leash and have fun. Inside your home is also an idea. Check out the image of the pup above carrying her toy and a mouth full of leaves… we let her wear herself out playing…she had fun and we got great images!
- If you do want to go to a park, or live in a condo/ apartment or other setting without a fenced back yard, running in a park on the leash is also possible.
So if you’ve been worried that your dog will “act up” or “wont do good” because he/ she isn’t trained….PLEASE don’t worry. We have tons of special tricks to get their attention and you will not regret capturing their personality and the reason you really love them.
