Getting a great shot of two dogs together often involves a little digital trickery. If the dogs do not have a good stay, put them both on lead and have the handler hold the leads straight up against a blurry background to make editing them out easier. Take lots of shots as you may need to do a head (or whole body) swap if you don’t manage to get one image with good expressions on both dogs.
