My dog Jackie views dressing up in costumes akin to agility training. He was born a feral dog in New Orleans right after Hurricane Katrina hit and has overcome many obstacles of being a fearful dog. So, when we go out on photo excursions and dress up, he is challenged with figuring out what we are doing and what I want from him, as well as “what I am wearing?”. It does not stress him out and in fact he loves the many treat rewards he gets during our sessions. He often tries on costumes for me that I create for the shelter dogs to wear during various photo shoots throughout the year. Here is Jackie’s most recent session, which we shot over 3 different days. Little Red Riding Hood. I’ll post a few photos soon of his brother Jesse in his super hero Halloween costume.
