Ambassadogs: Rainbow Haven Beach

My amazing Ambassadogs enjoyed another adventure and photo shoot this month, and this time we went to Rainbow Haven!

All 5 of this year's Ambassadogs were there and they had so much fun together. When we first arrived we went to a more secluded section of the beach and let the pups get their sillies out. We encouraged them to play in the water, too, which was hilarious and adorable. Then we explored some of the grassier areas for a change of scenery and color! Just before 8pm (when the parking lot is gated!) we did some running photos on the boardwalk, and then drove down the road just a little so that we could enjoy the beautiful sunset and soak up those last golden rays of the day.

These pups are SO sweet and are quickly becoming best buds. Doing these Ambassadog sessions is a great way for me to explore new locations and practice some ideas I've been wanting to shoot, and it's just a wonderful time for us to spend a fun evening together!

If you want to be first on the list to get details about next year's Ambassadog program, make sure to get on the Wet Nose Images email list. Those on the list always get first dibs on the good stuff, as well as getting updates about blog posts, fun tips for photography, and pup stuff! Find the green signup box at the bottom of this page (after you enjoy all these sweet faces) and join the list.

And the collars for this session were provided by Missy Leigh Canines! They all have a nautical theme - anchors, beach balls, and sea animals. So adorable!

So without further ado, and in order of appearance... here are Ember, Norbert, Gilbert, Dante, and Haven:

Get Dirty Dog Collars & Leashes | Product Photography

We use a 30-foot leash for Ruby when we go for adventures outside of our neighbourhood. Fields and beaches can be so much fun... but so dirty. And with a fabric leash that drags along the ground, we end up bringing lots of that water, dirt, and mud home. Not to mention the other things it accidentally drags through. Blech.

But I am thrilled to have a new option that avoids ALL of that! I did a product shoot for Get Dirty Collars & Leashes last weekend, and it was so much fun. Colleen runs this new local business and you can find her at trade shows and on Facebook. These leashes don't absorb any of the gunk you encounter on your adventures. They rinse off so easily! I now have a new 30-foot leash for Ruby, and a thin black leash to bring with me to sessions (it's easier to edit out).

I was so happy to throw out our old, stinky leash!!

Take a look at these hilarious cuties I hung out with on the weekend. They certainly got their collars and leashes dirty, but a quick jump in the water or a rinse in the hose or sink at home, and everything is as good as new.

Except the dogs themselves. They might need a bath!
