    • "To get him to look at the camera, ask questions. Anything will do -- it's all about the tone of your voice. Treats can backfire unless the pet is really well trained."
      -- Danielle Moss

    • "I like to get down on the dog's level and hang out with her so she can check out the camera and see that it's not a threat -- plus you get great shots that way!"
      -- Jeff Moore

    • "It's always best to wait until the animal is relaxed -- don't chase or rile her up. For instance, I like to photograph my cat just after his nap."
      -- Lars Topelmann

    • "Limit distractions and pick a quiet location. (Don't take your pet to a park with tons of kids playing and expect her to pay attention!)"
      -- Tiffany Holman

    • "Always have your camera or phone handy because you never know when your pet will do something adorable. Spontaneous moments are just that -- spontaneous!"
      -- Shaina Fishman

    • "With cats I do try food. Let her smell it and then hold it just above the lens so she's looking right into the camera for your shot."
      -- Jim Dratfield
