Use that “action” mode On most pint-and-shoot cameras the graphic for this is of someone running (also called “sport” mode). The faster shutter speed is always the best for capturing a dog in motion. If your dog is older, use the “portrait” mode.


Choose a focal point With most dogs, you need to decide if their eyes or the tip of their nose are going to be in focus. Very rarely are you going to get both. The nose is most likely to capture the focus mechanism of the camera, but not the eye. Use the “manual focus” setting on your camera to focus on your dog’s eye instead, and use “macro” setting since you are shooting a close-up.


Back Up! Copy your photos to a CD and a DVD.


Use gold CD’s for storage They are better quality are more archival.


Puppies Place pups and small dogs on sofas, chairs, benches, and other places from which they cannot jump off too easy.

Cats and Dogs It is best to get the cat comfortable first and then bring the dog into the picture.





Black dogs Position the dog in the sun outside, or use a higher shutter speed, higher-speed film, and a fill-flash inside.


Get low Take pictures at the dog’s eye level (which will be easy if you have a dane) so you can see the world as he does.

Make noise A harmonica, musical instrument, or high pitched sounds with your own voice will often cause dogs to tilt their heads.


Research breed profiles to gain a better understanding of their behavior characteristics.


Timing Pick your time of day carefully and avoid the midday sun or “top” light.





Dress down Do not wear your best clothes and be prepared to spend a lot of time lying on your stomach.


Health check Always consider the healthy, safety, and welfare of you yourself, the pets, and other people present.




Finding A Photographer


Word of mouth is a great way to find a pet photographer. Ask friends and colleagues if they have ever used a professional (especially if you like the dog photos they have displayed at home or work), and go to dog friendly events in your neighborhood.

Photographers are often working at dog shows, agility trials, and community-outreach events such as AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Days. You can also search for a dog photographer in your area online. Choose a website that is professional, paying attention to each photographer’s style.

Think about what you would like in your image, and try to find a photographer whose work best matches your vision. You should feel comfortable with the person you choose.

Heat Exhaustion And HeatStroke
Heat Exhaustion and Heat stroke is an emergency and requires immediate treatment. Because dogs do not sweat (except to a minor degree through their foot pads), they do not tolerate high environmental temperatures as well as humans do. Dogs depend upon panting to exchange warm air for cool air. But when air temperature is close to body temperature, cooling by panting is not an efficient process.

~Kittys Corner~

I have a Female Great Dane and her name is Kitty. She will be 2 in July '10. Her mother is a Blue Dane and her dad is a Black Dane. This is a picture of her here and there are lots of pictures of her on this website. This space is called Kittys Corner because when ever I am at my computer working (which is most of the time) Kitty is laying or sitting beside me with her head on my lap. So I made her a corner so she can voice what is going on in her world. ~Enjoy~

The weather is so warm and sunny. I was getting tired of the cold and being stuck in the house. Now mom has been back taking me on our walks I missed our walks. Have you been doing anything fun lately? Will you send me your pictures so I can see them? Mom even said something about starting a contest. How fun! So start taking some pictures, or if you already have some, send them in so I can see them. Send in a Picture
