091 – When it comes to “speaking dog,” very few pet owners are fluent. And that language barrier, if you will, leads to misunderstandings and unnecessary fear on the part of our four-legged friends.
As professional pet photographers, we need to do better. Understanding canine body language and social norms means not only will your sessions go more smoothly, but your subjects will be happier and more comfortable.
This week, certified dog trainer Sherry Novato of All About Training Dogs joins me to chat about putting the pups you photograph at ease.
What To Listen For:
- The two most stressful parts of a photo session for the dog
- Subtle signs that indicate a dog is feeling anxious
- How to introduce your camera to a nervous subject
- Common human behaviors that are confrontational in dog-speak 😳
- Helpful tips for working with blind or deaf dogs
- Secrets to a successful studio session
Once you know what to look for, you'll see intricate displays of dog body language wherever they gather and greet one another. Learn the “lingo” and you'll be that much more effective as a pet photographer!
