Pet Experience Days & Gifts

Of all the moving objects you’ve ever taken a picture of, your beloved furry friend is likely to have been the most wriggly. Bin the blurry camera phone snaps: treat your pet to a professional photo session. After all, pets are people too! (Sort of.)

Our pet photo sessions include a complimentary print and the chance to buy more prints if you’d like to. They’re suitable for most pets except big silly ones like camels, horses and elephants. Like all our photo sessions, locations are available all over the UK, and your voucher will be delivered completely free of charge!

FAQs

Q: My pet? What do you want to do to my pet?
A: Nice things, good things, wonderful things.
Q: If you could be more specific, that would be nice.
A: Basically we want to beautify your pet with a wonderful pampering experience and possibly take their picture by a professional photographer.
Q: Really? Even my pet mammoth, Claudine?
A: We tend to aim this at slightly smaller creatures such as dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and their ilk. We can’t really manage big beasts such as horses and, indeed, mammoths.
Q: How will you be beautifying my little baby?
A: It will be the typical grooming, shampooing, nail clipping and so forth. If you are looking for something specific or want to get different treatments, then discuss your needs with the groomer or the salon when booking.
Q: Any other options?
A: If you think your pet couldn’t be any cleaner or more groomed, then there is the choice of a Puppy or Kitten vaccination or a Pet Micro Chipping.
Q: If I get their picture taken, what’s up with that?
A: You’ll be getting one pet portrait session and one complimentary print (minimum size 5”x7”). The session is usually for the animals only and doesn’t include pictures of you and your pets.
Q: But what if I want more pictures of my pets? Hundreds of pictures?
A: Then you can talk to the studio, but you will pay more for extra prints. If you have any questions about this, then just ask us or talk to the supplier when booking.
Q: But where do I go, any ideas?
A: Of course! We have dozens of locations all around the UK, so there should be one close to you.

Fun Facts

  • 1. Three dogs survived the sinking of the Titanic – two Pomeranians and one Pekingese. Please don’t give James Cameron any more ideas – I do not need Dog Titanic clogging up my local multiplex.
  • 2. The top grossing dog film of all time is Marley and Me making a whopping $142,992,475 to date. The lowest? The forthcoming Dog Titanic.
  • 3. Dalmatian puppies are pure white when they are born and develop their spots as they grow older. The same thing happens with human teenagers, but they are far less cute.
  • 4. Dogs’ eyes contain a special membrane, called the tapetum lucidum, which allows them to see in the dark. So why aren’t there more canine cinema ushers? That is something I would love to see.
  • 5. Dogs have about 1,700 taste buds, while we have approximately 9,000 and cats have around 473. Which is why, no matter how much you are tempted, you should never try dog food.
  • 6. Dogs curl up in a ball when they sleep due to an age-old instinct to keep themselves warm and protect their vital organs from predators. But it doesn’t matter how tight the ball, they still seem to manage to occupy about 97% of the bed.
  • 7. 33 per cent of dog owners admit to talking to their dogs on the phone while they are apart from them. The other 67% use Skype instead.
  • 8. Only domestic cats hold their tails straight up while walking, while wild cats hold their tails horizontally or tucked between their legs. And only Top Cat can wear a straw boater and a bowtie with that level of panache.
  • 9. One urban legend states Sir Isaac Newton invented the cat flap, though there is no evidence of this. The doggy door, yes of course that was definitely Sir Isaac, but the cat flap? We’re not sure.
  • 10. A group of kittens is called a ‘kindle’, while a group of grown-up cats is called a ‘clowder’. And if your clowder gets too big, then you’re probably a middle-aged lady with a substantial cardigan collection.
