Halloween: your dog & fireworks

October has arrived and pet owners across the country prepare for the ever stressful holiday that is Halloween. While it’s my favourite time of the year, for our furry friends, fireworks often cause serious stress and panic. The explosions of noise and light can be a time of trauma for many dogs and cats, even a mile or two away. Unfortunately, fireworks being set off are not limited to one night, but rather the weeks coming up to the 31st […]

Dog personality type guide: attend dog-friendly events with success

Being part of a Pack is a wonderful and truly special thing. It’s a great way to meet like-minded individuals who share your passion and love for dogs and animals in general. I’ve met some life-long friends through Pawtrait Ireland events but I know that attending an event should never come at the potential detriment of my dogs and/or any professional training I have done with them. Knowing your dog’s personality type can help make sure your attendance goes off […]

Riley: sun, sand and being dog.

Have you ever met a dog that’s ridiculously happy? Well, that’s Riley. It was hard to believe when I met him that he was the runt of the litter who was never picked up by his expected new owner. As a result, he was just given to his mum Claire. You can tell they have an unbreakable bond. He was always watching her during our shoot to see where she was. And believe it or not, when we met this […]

Susie & Sam: a woodland of colour

I met Susie & Sam in one of my favourite places to photograph, Kindlestown Wood, right down the road from my home. We set out just before 11 am when the light is really beautiful up there at this time of the year. The air is so crisp and you hardly ever meet another person, especially mid-week. Kindlestown has become a secret sanctuary of sorts for me. I often just climb to the top and sit on the rocks, over-looking […]

News: Pawtrait Ireland’s 1st Birthday

It’s hard to believe that my business is officially 1 year old today. This time last year, I sat on my laptop and posted this blog post. A huge thank you to all my supporters and The Pack for keeping me afloat over the last year. I’ve learned so much from how to run a business to working on improving my photography. That’s the great thing about photography, you never stop learning. I would never have thought I would be […]
