Most dogs aren’t the per­fectly be­haved mod­els that we’d all love to work with. Ruby here was es­pe­cially ex­citable and bouncy, so we grabbed her at­ten­tion with her favourite treats, which helped to per­suade her to sit in the mid­dle of the stu­dio.

Dry­ing off be­tween ses­sions and mak­ing sure Ruby was com­fort­able was top pri­or­ity. True to the spaniel breed she loved get­ting wet, so it wasn’t much of an is­sue, but if you have a dog that isn’t such a fan of wa­ter, a towel might be your best friend on a shoot like this.
