Another spot to stay with a great spa and restaurant.
One of the best B&B’s in Falmouth.
Do you have a dog you adore? A cat you think is the best thing you’ve ever seen? A rabbit you want the world to fall in love with? Well, we want to see them -and you – for our new pet selfies gallery which will have a Christmas theme.
And if you want to get them looking festive for Christmas, all the better.
We’ll be running the best online, on social media and in the paper – and there may even be prizes on offer for the best ones.
Trying to pose for a picture with your furry friend can present a challenge. But there are some ways you can persuade your pet to sit still for the camera.
Tips for taking the perfect pet selfie include good lighting, interesting backgrounds, and some tempting treats.
Bribery is key – you need treats in the pocket. Then get the camera set up and have a remote trigger in one hand and a treat in the other. You can then get your pet to look the way you want them to look.
Incorporate interesting backgrounds or a local landscape into the picture if you can.
Taking a pet selfie takes time and patience, and it’s important not to force your pet if they are feeling camera shy. It’s better to position yourself next to your pet rather than trying to get them to fit in the frame with you.
So, if your cat is already sitting, slide in next to them. And if your dog is lying down, get down on the floor with them.
Remember, it doesn’t count as a selfie if you didn’t take the picture yourself – so please don’t send us those, they won’t count!
Once you have taken your selfie, send it to [email protected], subject Pet Selfies message it to us via our Facebook page or tweet it to us @thepacket. Make sure you include yours and your pet’s name.
