It can be difficult to get a good photo of your dog if they won’t stay still, but there are a few things you can do to help them stay calm and cooperative.
First, try to have someone else help you by holding your dog’s leash while you take the photo. This will help keep them from running around too much. You can also try treats – have a few small treats handy and give your dog one every few seconds while you’re taking the photo. This will help keep their attention focused on you. Finally, try to be calm and relaxed yourself – your dog will pick up on your energy and if you’re tense, they’ll likely be tense as well.
Make sure to use a background that is a different color than your dog’s fur. This will make them pop out more, and be sure to use a contrasting color. If you have a black labrador, use a white or light blue background to make their portrait picture really pop.
