By now, some of you might be thinking how can one possibly calm their dogs gown for a photo. Toronto-based pet photographer Karen Weiler, revealed her tricks on how to take the perfect picture with pets. One of the most useful one, according to Weiler, was to hold its favorite toy or a treat near the camera’s lens. That way, the camera will have it’s undivided attention. She further explained, “As a professional dog photographer, my secret weapon is that I can make the highest pitched sounds you can imagine—sounds that always elicit laughter from the humans and the crowd-pleasing favourite, the head-tilt, from the dog.”
In the next few photos, you’ll see how some people managed to get their dogs attention but not in the most ideal way.
