Funny Faces


Zoe is still not loving the camera when we are out and about. Posing her for photos has gotten so tough! I know I need to work on this with some higher value treats. When we are at home in the house she's fine. She's such a weirdo! So today I decided to share some of her funnier "I'm not going to look at you" photos. Generally when I take her picture I am wanting eyes on me and ears perked forward. I should probably shape this with a clicker.

"Did you say ears forward, mom? Nah.."

 "Oh, were we taking photos? I think I smell something! We don't need any photos!"

She's so funny. Sometimes this drives me crazy but at least I have Phoenix! Phoenix is always up for whatever and she looks right into the camera.


I tend to spend a lot of time practicing my photography skills on Phee because she's a lot easier. If you have food she's good to go. 

Do your dogs like getting their picture taken? What are your best tips for getting good photos? I'm going to start working on this more with Zoe so the "pupparazzi" doesn't bother her. :D

  1. I totally agree with you...I have a heck of a time trying to take pictures of the girls...if I have treats, it is a HUGE help! Most of the time...they just don't like looking at the camera! I think my daughter spent too much time flashing them in the eyes with the camera flash when they were younger!!

  2. Taking posed photos outside is always a challenge for me. Any little smell will distract brown dawgs....lol. You got some nice pictures. I like them all.

  3. I think my dogs could pretty much be defined as picture taking rockstars, though Pallo at least didn't start out that way. They could both use a bit more of a solid stay, though, as they sometimes break while I'm taking photos and come to me.

  5. Bailie and I love the camera and know how to act. Katie doesn't like it and purposely looks away or like she is being tortured most of the time.

  6. Mr. N is very good about having his photo taken (we get comments from random people about how he is "posing").
    I think there's an app for dog photos that will make squeaky noises and stuff. Can't remember the name off the top of my head.

  7. Two people helps us, one to hold treats the other to snap away! :-)

  8. Phee sounds like Nola, and Pike is the exact same as Zoe! That boy hates the camera unless I have his frisbee, and then he can't sit still.

  11. haha I have the same issue with one of my huskies. Mika does not like the camera - any time I pull it out, she puts her head down, and looks depressed. Treats and all!! Have NO clue why she does that, so most of my photo shoots are with the other two.
