    Pet Model Request Form

    Occasionally I need a dog model for various reasons. This could be for testing out a new location or technique, shooting for personal projects or portfolio.  All dog breeds, of any sizes and colors are welcome to apply. Good looks are not a free ticket to acceptance – your dog must also meet all of the training and socialization criteria.

    If you are able to answer YES to these questions:
    • Located in Northwest Suburbs of Chicago IL.

    • Willing to sign a model/property release for your dog, and optionally for yourself if you wish to be included in the photos.

    • Willing and able to handle and direct your dog for the duration of the shoot if required.

    • Available on weekends.

    • Available in the early morning (sunset + 2 hours) or late afternoon (2 hours before sunset) for sessions.

    Does your Dog have these skills?
    • Be calm and confident in unfamiliar, noisy and busy environments.

    • Be easily directed, alert and interested in strange surroundings.

    • Be obedience trained - bare minimum of sit, down/drop.

    • Have excellent leash manners.

    • Be reliable in off-lead situations with excellent recall.

    • Be confident and willing to work for other handlers when required.

    By submitting your animal to my database in no way guarantees that he / she will be chosen for a photo shoot. I will notify you if your animal has been selected for further inquiry, and it’s always your choice if you want to participate in a potential photo shoot.

    You will receive two 8x10 prints and watermarked, web resolution images to share with friends and family and the option to purchase prints, products and digital images.

    **Note that I'm NOT an animal talent agency**
    Please complete form for each animal.
