I’m a writer, a photographer, and a Fur Mom, which means most days you’ll find me stalking our pets with camera in hand. We have three dogs and two cats that barely notice the camera, but it’s a different story when I take my Sony Alpha to the dog park. The first time I went I made the worst mistake and almost lost my camera; since then, I’ve learned a few things that have made taking pictures at the dog park fun.
Arrive Early – When I want to take pictures at the dog park, I arrive between 9 and 10 in the morning; there are enough dogs at the park to get some great shots, but not so many that I worry about my camera’s safety. Stop by your dog park several times during the day and week to see get to know the traffic and choose a time that will work for you and your camera.
