Is your pet this relaxed during a photo shoot? Of course, your pet, relaxed or lively, has been very good this year! Just listen to what he or she tells Santa Claus.
And you can capture the moment with a FREE photo of your pet with Santa at participating Petco and PetSmart locations. Of course, your pet doesn’t have to be a dog or cat. If your pot-bellied pig, bunny or ferret is friendly and photogenic, it is welcome in accordance with each store’s policy.
Petco is offering a FREE photo with Santa on Dec. 2, 2023 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
The family fun is available at select locations only. Times may vary. Contact your local store for full details.
Pet parents can bring their furry (or not) family members to PetSmart’s Paws & Claus Photo Event for a FREE photo with the Santa on Dec. 16 and 17, 2023 at participating locations. The holiday event runs from noon to 3 p.m. However, times may vary by location.
Snap photos on your personal device or receive a FREE digital file via e-mail.
Space is limited. Reservations are required. Select a location and time slot here.
Help your pets put their best paws forward
If striking the perfect pose is at the top of your pet’s wish list, PetSmart training expert Jodie Havens, CPDT-KSA shares four tips to ensure your pet looks their best for their holiday photo moment:
- Prep their look: Dress them up for the holiday to create a photo moment you’ll always remember, such as a Santa Claus suit and hat for cats and dogs, striped pajamas for small pets or a hot cocoa ugly sweater for reptiles, or accessorize with items like a reindeer headband for dogs.
- Get their attention: To get them to look at the camera, use a squeaker toy, hold a treat, call their name or make sounds you know they’ll respond to throughout the photo-taking process.
- Play with them: Get them to play with you or take them for a quick spin around PetSmart to get that beautiful pet grin.
- Reward them: Pair the sight of the camera with treats and give them a goodie after a few photo frames. Keep up the treats after the photo session concludes.
