PhysioMyDog & Avon Dog Services Package

Dog Tips

  • Suggest filming after you have walked your dog for a few minutes – so they’re not overly excited

  • Keep your dog on a LOOSE lead and collar 

    • If you use a harness, please remove for the purpose of videoing 

  • Avoid your dog jumping up

  • Avoid your dog looking up at you – ideally looking forward

Required Video Footage In Advance

To help maximise our face to face sessions, we would like you to take some video footage of your dogs in advance.

General Filming Tips

  • Two people are required.  One to video and the other holding the lead and dog

  • Use your phone or tablet

  • Use the landscape setting when filming all videos

  • Keep the videos to around 30-45 seconds

  • Keep the phone/tablet steady

  • Ensure you are in a well-lit area – avoiding shady spots

  • Avoid busy areas where your dog is distracted.  Perhaps your back garden or a quiet field

  • Avoid filming in long grass or anything that will block the view of your dog’s paws 

  • Choose flat ground – if you notice your dog struggles on some surfaces (ie tarmac, stones) but better on others (ie grass), please film both surfaces so we can compare

  • Film from around 4 meters back - or slightly closer if you're dog is small breed

  • Please ensure you are filming the whole of the dog – not cutting off their feet or heads

  • When filming the dog walking away from you, ensure we can see the whole of the dog's back, ie not too low down
