Dog & Family Photography with a Difference

NEW SLP Logo Guild-RegMem

Melody's passion of providing a relaxed, calm environment for dogs to have their photos taken is paramount. Giving their loving owners the opportunity to capture beautiful moments to cherish with their dogs.


This is a special package for our gorgeous senior dogs in mind. Firstly, you will be invited to a Tellington TTouch workshop. TTouch incorporates body work and groundwork exercises where appropriate, to help improve co-ordination, balance and athletic ability whilst deepening further communication and understanding between the dog and its owner. This will be followed by a studio and an outdoor photoshoot, we'll hope to capture your dog's personality and favourite activities, even if that is just chilling.


Looking forward to offering this unique photoshoot to you. Alternatively, this could be a special gift for your friend or family and their beloved dog.

Golden Oldies Package with a Difference - Only £250.

What's included:


Pre-shoot Consultation

To discuss what you would like in your photos, including a choice of backdrops and props. We will discuss what your dog's needs are in terms of age, health, desires (treats and toys) and their daily activities (sport, sleeping, play). Although your dogs are the main focus of the photoshoot, I will also welcome your children to sit with your dog in a proportion of the photos to capture memories of your loved ones together.


Springer Loaded Canine Fitness - Full 2 hour 1-2-1 TTouch Workshop

The 2 hour introduction to TTouch will include bodywork (gentle sensory touch) for relaxation, lowering heart rate, reducing inflammation and increasing body awareness. Observations (to help the owner notice even the slightest changes in body language that would let you know there is pain, nervousness or feeling uncomfortable within their environment). Equipment including harness to improve lead pulling and gait, but also body wraps to increase body awareness and posture. Groundwork (confidence course where by slow considered movements can calm and relax the dog, paying more attention to where they are walking that helps wth balance / proprioception and improves self carriage (posture) and self control. These activities will cover Springer Loaded Canine Fitness's ethos of providing dogs with Mental, Physical and Emotional Stimulation to give you a balanced, calm companion in preparation for the photoshoot itself, but also in life generally.
