Margaret Bryant makes creating captivating dog portraits look easy--but anyone who has aspired to take portraits of a four-legged friend knows it is no simple task.

Next, Bryant provides sure-fire tips for getting the dog's attention and desired reactions/behaviors, creating poses for solo dogs and groups, styling the session, working with dog wranglers, and more.
