They like treats and squeaks. Those and a few other tricks up our sleeve will mean we can get them into position for the microsecond to get the shot. It’s not just about getting your dog to “do stuff” we make sure they are comfortable with us so that their personality can shine through.
As many dogs as you have! (As long as they’re from the same household).
Not at all, if you wanted to be though without fully committing, it can be as simple as standing beside them or a silhouette. One half of Mutts Like Us (Dan) has a thing for photographing people so we both dog and people photo skills.

Bring some of their favourite treats with you.
A collar and lead if they usually wear a harness.
Feeding them so that they are on the peckish side for the shoot is a great idea.
Also, bring some of their favourite toys, balls, squeaks with you if you think it’ll help get their attention.
For scorching weather bring extra water. If its raining, and umbrella, wellies and a towel are a good idea. If the weather is terrible, then we will arrange the shoot.
