Working on photo and video shoots can be stressful situations especially for animals and their owners. Michelle and Toni are passionate the animals and their pet parents have an amazing experience on set even if they have little to no experience. After several years and many shoots later, they have learned the tricks of the trade to ensuring the animal remains comfortable and happy so the photographer or videographer can get the perfect shot. Join Michelle and Toni as they address how, as trainers, you can do the same and incorporate your skills as services for local companies, family portraits, wedding services and other outlets.

Goals will be to:

  • Understand the trainer’s role in a photo/video shoot and how to work cohesively with the team to maximize the opportunity of getting the shot while being the best advocate for the animal.
  • Identify potential career opportunities by including this expertise as an additional service for clients.
  • Understand ways to make the animal the most comfortable in a potentially stressful short-term situation.
