Handy Tips!

Video 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

  • Keep the videos to around 30 seconds​ each

  • Keep the phone/tablet steady

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

  • Video 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.

    • Avoid filming looking down at your dog - go slightly lower

    • If your dog is small, suggest getting lower down to their level.  

    • Please see examples below 👇

  • When filming the dog walking away from you, ensure we can see the whole/top of the dog's back.

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

  • Avoid footage of your dog in long grass or anything that will block the view of their 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.

👇 Below are examples of ideal videos. 👇 Please only provide "running" video if your dog is able - do not force.

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 

  • Please have your dog at walk and trot pace.
