Dog Parks

As experienced pet photographers we’re happy to photograph your pet dog where and whenever you would like , but often our customers request a recommendation for a dog park close to their home.

Dog parks can often be a good spot for a photography session with your dog as it enables you to let them off the leash so we can capture some nice relaxed shots of your furry friend.  So, if you don’t have a backyard or then why not check out the list below to see if you live near one of them.

Curtain Square, Carlton North is always useful for those on the north side of the city.  Plenty of nearby parking and always another dog to say hello to!

Gasworks Park, Albert Park is a large open space close to the beach in case you fancy cramming two locations into one shoot.

Yarra Bend Park, Fairfield is a great big space so plenty of room to run around in. Rarely too busy so fewer distractions.

Footscray Park is a park with the Maribyrnong River winding through it so has some lovely locations for photos, although there is only a small section of the park that is actually off-leash.

St Kilda West Beach is a handy spot as it not only gives you greenery for photos, but also the beach and easy access to the pier.

Sandown Street Beach, Brighton is fenced and close to the beach.  Not too far from the famous Brighton beach bathing boxes, although these are off limits to dogs during the summer months, but perfect for a winter shoot on a calm day.

Caulfield Park, Caulfield North is a large park which is mostly a leash-free except within 50m of BBQ and children’s playgrounds.

Obviously the list isn’t exhaustive so if there isn’t a location near you then drop us a line and we’ll make some suggestions for your next Melbourne pet photography session. 
As always, we love your input so please feel free to let us know of any great dog parks near where you live so we can add them to our list.
