We'll call you

We would first of all ring you once you have registered to discuss the best time for you to come into our studio. We work weekends and can work round what day and time is best for you.

Meet your dog

Once you have arrived and I have met your dog and have had some cuddles and kisses and I’m sure your dog is relaxed, happy and calm, we will start our photoshoot.

Select your photo

After your photoshoot we will look at the images taken together and you can choose your favorite image to enter into the North East Dog Portrait Competition.

Happy and relaxed is our aim for you and your dog.

We want to give you as much choice as we possibly can so I always say this very loosely when I say we aim for sitting, lying, standing, side profile and head-shot poses. That’s our aim but we always look to keep your dog happy and relaxed so if they don’t want to sit or stand or do a pose then we would never force them.  Your dogs’ welfare is always our number one priority.

Where can you view your entered image?

All entries for the competition are added to the North East Dog Portrait Competition folder on our Facebook page at the end of each month. Please feel free to tag yourself into your dogs image and share with your friends and family.

When does the competition close and who is it judged by?

The competition closes for all entries on the 23rd December 2022. The competition will be judged by representatives from Guide Dogs North East Mobility Team.
