Think all you need is a squeaky toy and every dog will give you great expressions? Think again! Every dog is different and you need to try different noises. I have a large collection of different noisemakers I picked up over the years. I chose my favorites and assembled this starter kit. This kit is more than a bunch of different noise making devices in one box. It also contains instructions on the best way to use the noise makers in the box and suggestions for additional noise makers. This is the starter collection you need to begin your own collection. Benefit from my many years of experience in finding out what works and what doesn’t work. Take a look inside the box.
And if you are a baby photographer, this is a great kit for baby photographers!
Show leads are an indispensable part of dog handling, especially in the studio. It is a great way to give a dog some confidence and to keep them in place. The Show Lead Kit contains one show lead and an instruction card telling you how to use the lead for optimum handing and minimum post production retouching.
