The festive season is upon us, and every pooch wants to stand out from the pack as the festivities roll in. Valgray luxury dog accessories, including premium collars and leashes, allow your pup to do just this. They're comfortable enough to make every excursion an enjoyable one and stylish enough so that heads will turn when you and your pup hit the streets.


When your best friend joins the Valgray family, you'll undoubtedly want to take a million photographs. Here, we share some top tips on getting your pup photo ready!


How to Get Your Pup Fashion Photo Ready


So, you've purchased your Valgray dog accessories in the colour and style of your choosing, and now you want to document just how gorgeous your fury-friend looks. But how can you take the best Insta-worthy snaps and put your pooch on the map as a serious style connoisseur? When taking pictures of your pup, follow these top tips:


  • Always make sure your pup feels comfortable: One of the most essential parts of taking stunning dog portraits is to make sure you're taking pics in a location where your little one feels comfortable. Head to a quiet park or beach, a familiar spot, or curate a photo corner in your garden or home. The more comfortable your dog feels, the more likely you are to get stellar snaps.


  • Bring lots of treats: Treats are indeed the way to your furry friend's heart and can make or break a photoshoot. When you use treats to reiterate positive reinforcement, you will be better equipped to manage your pup. Treats are also a fantastic way to get them to practice an array of poses and tricks, such as sitting, lying down, waiting, or rolling over.


  • Get them used to our dog accessories: Before taking those stunning snaps, make sure your pup feels comfortable rocking our stylish dog accessories. Take them for walks with our premium collar and leash sets so that they're excited about wearing our dog accessories. The more comfortable they feel, the more natural and happy the pictures will be.


  • Change perspectives: If you want to get creative, mix up the angles and perspectives. Get down low, and see the world from your pup's view. Play around with your lens, zooming in and out and working with different camera settings. You can also work with shadows and light, creating different moods. Take some close-up shots where you really capture their facial expressions and the character in their eyes, and some wider-angled ones where you capture their environment, too.

Collars for all dog sizes!

Valgray is one of the few brands that cater for the truly tiny pooch with our X-Small collars. We also go the extra mile to ensure we cater for the giant breeds with measurements reaching up to 75cm.

Never try to guess your dog's neck size! Avoid disappointment by first making sure you measure your pup’s neck for the most accurate sizing.

Then, refer to our sizing chart below to find the most appropriate collar size for your doggie. Remember to select a collar size that will fit comfortably and allow for movement.

Don’t have a tape measure lying around? No problem! To learn how to measure your dog's neck safely with various household items, click here.

Personal customisation

We try our best to cater to every breed, but some doggos might need a little extra at-home customisation to achieve the perfect fit. Our PVC-coated nylon straps are soft, making adjustments at home very easy. Use a standard leather punching tool to add additional holes, or use a utility knife to trim the length of your collar.
