Every time I bring out the camera Amberleah lou lou hides, she puts her ears down. I try giving her treats making it fun but no luck . Any other ideas.

I read in a book once, that to a lot of dogs a camera looks like a giant eye staring at them, and since to dogs a big eye with a big dilated pupil is threatening I it leads to a lot of dogs being afraid of them. After looking into my camera closely it made total sense to me! Kerri was like this for a long time, even though we started taking pictures early. We finally got it so she was only shy around DSLRs, so we set one on the ground and let her sniff it and put treats around it for a day. I think she realized that it was not actually alive and a giant eye, because she got better. Still though, she really does not want to look directly at the camera. I trained her with a commend "look at me" and if I am holding a DSLR she will look at me (and it) but she always looks nervous when she does it, so I try to stick to more action shots. Or I just take pictures with my phone, that does not seem to bother her!

that make lot of since to me. I am going to try the treat thing around it. I had posted a picture of her on a site wishing them happy St.Patrick's day and a guy said i was cruel to make her pose for pictures and put the dress on her. I told him she hates camera yes but loves her clothes.

my girls do the same thing . lol. try finding things that make noises that she's never heard before. that may get her attention and if you time it just right when you are about to snap the pic. even dropping something that makes noise on the floor, right when your going to take the pic. put some coins in a jar and shake it to get her attention... something like that...

Yes to everything Elaina said! Also a pgotographer who does a lot of pet stuff once told me the trick is to make the noise at the moment you are pressing the shutter, and it really does work. I always feel like they will be looking away, but making the noise right with the button press has gotten some of the best pics I have, even if they weren't looking at the camera the second before.

Ha,ha,ha, love all the ideas. Raisin is mine that absolutely closes her eyes and turns her head..I did find that it was the noise on my camera phone that clued her in. If I put the silence on that is muted and does help. It can be absolutely hilarious trying to get pics of all three.

I always dangle their favorite treats in front of the camera, or make a sharp noise. Usually making a howling sound will get their ears standing up straight lol. Mine are also used to getting pics taken
