For dogs with a limited ability to keep still, like my Wheaten Terriers:
1. I like to keep the lighting simple, so that when the dogs finally settle down, there is less to go wrong. This image is of my dogs on my couch lit by one 750ws Calumet Travelite with a large soft box just over my head.
2. Take dogs on long walks before shooting and wear them out. You don't want the dog panting and drooling, but within reason, tired dogs are less hyper.
3. Be patient. I took more than 40 images to get this one useable shot.
