Getting the perfect pet pic amongst the Christmas chaos can be a challenge. But, with a sprinkle of festive magic (and bribery), you can be on your way to a print-worthy portrait the whole family will love.
The best way to be sure you and your dog are framed in the photo together is to set the timer on your phone or ask a friend to snap a shot for you. This is where treats will come in handy to keep your pup’s attention.
The sky’s the limit when it comes to ideas for a festive photoshoot. Maybe you want to get a photo of your dog and family out on a walk together. Or, why not try posing in front of the Christmas tree? And if you’re really feeling the Christmas spirit, you can even hire a professional photographer to take a family portrait with your furry friend.
From our furry family to yours
Now that you have the perfect shot, print them out and send them to family and friends as Christmas cards. If you have children, decorating the cards with glitter and stickers is a fun activity to keep them entertained, too. Don’t forget to let your dog sign the card with a cute paw print on the back. This will no doubt take pride of place on every mantlepiece.
One of the best parts of Christmas is all the lights to look at – there’s always someone in the neighbourhood who goes all out with their decor!
Enjoy spending time with Fido this Christmas with a long walk to check out the decorations. They’ll be fascinated by all the bright blinking lights and holiday flair.
