We know how much you love your dog. Your dog brings so much joy and happiness to your life. Your dog has been such a blessing to your life and given you companionship. You want to keep your dog always in your heart. Many pet parents have come to Precious Prints Clay Prints to make pet paw prints. We love working with the animals that are so special to you. We love working with dogs. However, sometimes it can be difficult to get a clean and clear print, especially if your dog is excitable. Take a look at some of these tips to ensure that you get the best print at your appointment.
Prepare Your Dog For the Appointment
If you know of certain ways to keep your dog calm, please do this right before your appointment. Many dog parents have given me their suggestions of what they did before the appointment such as:
- Take them for a walk
- Give them a bath
- Play with their favorite toy
- Do a dog park visit
Before the appointment, we do recommend that you make sure that your dog has had a full meal. We also ask that you wash your dog’s paws and give him or her a manicure.
Bring Someone Else to the Appointment
If you have a family member, such as a son or daughter, that knows how to keep your dog calm please bring them to the appointment. That individual can keep them calm while I do the work of making a beautiful imprint of your dog’s paw print. This will keep the dog distracted and entertained while I do some delicate work. If your dog is just focused on having someone he or she does not know imprint their paw in ceramic, they may have a small revolt. If multiple people they know are there, they will feel more comfortable with their surroundings. They will be easier to work with.
Bring a Treat or Toy for a Reward
Also, if your dog knows that they need to be on their best behavior in order to get a treat or their favorite toy, they will behave better. I have an easier time when dogs are waiting patiently for their reward. However, if your dog has not mastered its training to be still while waiting for a reward, it may not be the best idea. Pet parents understand their dogs and know what will excite them and what will calm them. Use your best judgment. However, a treat for good behavior at the appointment will lead to a happier dog.
