What I’m Looking For: The Basics

  • Dogs who’ve been rescued and are in furever homes
    this is not a showcase for dogs still up for adoption
  • No humans in the photos
    nope, not even your kids
  • High quality digital pictures
    either 300 dpi, 12 inches or 500×500 pixels
  • Do NOT crop your photos, we’ll do that!
     send me the biggest raw copy of your pix
  • Do NOT try to enlarge a small photo
    if it wasn’t photographed large, the quality will suffer

What I’m Looking For: The Hints

  • Don’t try to pose your dog
    sit/stays or action shots are best
  • Consider the lighting
    best lighting is natural sun outdoors
  • Avoid “busy” or “messy” backgrounds
    Good: Flowers, grass, brick walls, fences, etc.
  • Be creative, be funny!
    capture your dog’s personality
  • Two or more dogs in a picture?
    make sure they are really close together

Other Suggestions 

  • Dogs wet from swimming or bathing
    The sillier the better!
  • Dogs muddy or misbehaving
    great caught-in-the-act shots!
  • Buddy/buddy with another animal
    Cats, rabbits, horses, guinea pigs, cows
  • On vacation or in an unusual setting
    beaches, camping, mountain tops, car trips
  • Action shots!
    running, jumping, playing with toys, etc.

The #1 reason pictures are rejected is the image is TOO SMALL!

Just because the image looks good on your computer or phone, doesn’t mean the quality is there to transfer to print.
