How to get that Happy Pet Picture????
« on: June 17, 2008, 02:18:49 am »
Hello all,

danwins here, and wondering how you get a camera shy dog to give you that happy dog look when you try to take a picture. 

Snuggles is a happy go lucky dog that just is non-stop full tilt all the time, except when I pull out a camera.  Doesnt matter if I am behind someone and then pop out to take the pic. or if I get her alone to take the shot.

I swear she has a sixth/seventh sense to avoid the camera or give a look like she just lost her favorite toy or bone.

Any Ideas???????????

Have you tried the "look ar me" trick? I always train (attempt to train) that from the time they're puppies. Hold a YUMMY treat between your teeth & give hand signal to your face. - That's not a very good explanation -  :-\

There are SO many people here that are experts in taking pet pictures. I'm eager to read how they do it.  :)

Good topic!

Well, it's pretty easy with my dog who looks pretty aloof and serious a lot. All I have to say "Lily, CHEESE!"  ;D and she turns into a one happy gal  ;) :D

Miles is also a natural. I just get the camera out and he's all photogenic. He's such a ham. :P


I hope you get some good pics soon! I'm sure more people will have better ideas on how to accomplish this. Good Luck! And I can't wait to see all the pics after you start snapping away!

I use Harley's favorite words like WALK, CAR, PARK. Mean yes but I always get a good picture.  :)
