Tip of the Day – Remove distractions
Another tip for working with multiple dogs today. I know this photo is of just one dog – the beautiful Jaspah. But that’s because the other dogs were being held on-lead away from Jaspah while I worked with her. Having multiple people (owners + an assistant) is invaluable in multiple dog sessions. Trying to deal with multiple off-leash dogs while getting the attention and focus you need to get the shot with your chosen dog, is a recipe for disaster! 🤯
Make things easy for yourself by limiting distractions as much as possible, which means removing the other dogs from the equation. Give them lots of breaks to play and socialise by all means, but when you need to get down to business, make your time with them count.
