Spring is in the air! Wedding dresses, modelling dogs – all in a day’s work for Total Pet Services!

Never work with children or animals? Well last Monday we were invited to bring along a couple of well behaved (ahem!) dogs to take part in a professional photo shoot by Marney Mai Designs. The theme was A Spring Wedding which gave us the ideal opportunity to gain some lovely images for Weddings by Total Pet Services.

As the shoot was taking place at the very beautiful Courteenhall Estate in the Northamptonshire countryside, it made sense to select some doggy clients from our Total Pet Services Northampton branch.courteenhall

After careful consideration, Harley the very handsome Boxer (very reliable sit/stay, glossy coat), Saffy the gentle Labradoodle (scruffily cute, very friendly, non shedding, excellent on her lead) and Lulu the loyal Chihuahua/Dachshund cross (small, inoffensive, cute and guaranteed to not wander off!) were selected.

Luckily the weather was kind and it was a beautiful sunny day (although very chilly) – we had been praying for a dry day as dirty dog paws and white wedding dresses would be a very embarrassing mix!

All the dogs posed nicely for some individual shots wearing our beautiful handmade, bespoke collars – some better than others! Harley was most definitely the star of the show here, although he and Saffy had some making up to do after barking at the photographer and scaring him half to death!

Once the bride and groom were ready it was decided that Lulu was to be the main dog  featured. Her colouring complimented the scenery and the theme of the shoot perfectly.  Being a naturally shy dog we were a little worried about how confident she would be  standing with people she had only just met.  We needn’t have worried! Lulu although  shy is also a massive flirt and after being given a few treats by “the groom” was his best  friend, gazing up adoringly and posing like a pro!

After an hour all the excitement was over and the dogs were ready for a well deserved  rest and a treat. We are very much looking forward to seeing the photos and are very proud of our 4 legged models. Never work with animals? Not unless they have been hand selected by Total Pet Services!!
