Why are Beagles great in the dog photography studio?
Because they are Beagles! Beagles are strong minded, wilful, determined, mischevieous and full of character.
Even at 13 years old as our model is. Their colours, their face, their eyes all help to draw you in to the portrait, to hold your attention and captivate!
Beagles tend to have fine temperament and are steady by nature so they can cope with the noises and flashes in the studio and they love having their photograph taken.
Beagles are fun to be around and if the mood in the dog is fun and happy, that lifts the mood of everyone in the studio and makes photographing the dog so much fun and if the Beagle is having fun that shines through in the beautiful portrait we create.
Beagles love to perform and to be the centre of attention, some would say they like attention too much and become very good at getting it!
Beagles love to scent and can get carried away when a strong smell wafts across their nose and we all know what a Beagle sounds like when in full scent following mode, that is a sound to wake everyone up!
Beagles were used to hunt hare because of their fine sense of smell and their remarkable stamina, this means however if your Beagle takes off on a scent, he isn’t going to get tired and will take some finding.
Beagles make superb pets and due to their compact size, they are easy to live with and are very trainable which s a great help when they are in the studio having their dog portraits created.
Beagles are lovely to be around, they are social, love a good fuss and want to help and they want to please and this is a real asset.
