Tip of the Day – Deaf and blind dogs
This daily tip series is brought to you by Barkelona – a pet photography retreat we ran near Barcelona, Spain in April 2016. You can watch the behind-the-scenes video and read raving reviews here. Don’t forget to sign up to the mailing list to be the first to know when we announce our next out-of-this-world pet photography retreat!
When working with deaf or blind (or both, in this case) dogs, it can be very challenging to obtain expression. Instead of defaulting to noises and visual cues, target other senses. Some may sense vibration while others might be receptive to the smell of a tasty treat held nearby!
