Santa Paws: Dog & Puppy Photos with Santa

FurBaby Santa Paws Banner

It’s pretty special when Santa comes to visit our FurBaby Dog and Puppy Daycare Centre!  And it’s even more special when he takes time from his busy schedule to have a photo taken with adorable, cute dogs and puppies. Santa Paws is for the whole family and your partner, children and other pets are always welcome to be included!

FurBaby hosts its Santa Paws event every year so your beloved dog or puppy can have a photo with Santa.  And, while you receive a super cute Christmas memento, you also give back to our Western Australian community, as this year we will be raising funds for Guide Dogs WA.

FurBaby is all about dogs and puppies so we know how to get your dog or puppy to look at the camera to make sure your photo is super cute!  The very talented Richelle from Richelle Beswick Photography is an amazing animal photographer, her work is incredible and we have been lucky to have her take our wonderful Santa Paws photos over the last four years.

This year we have transformed our VID Area into a Christmas wonderland, with Christmas trees and baubles galore, all set up for Santa’s visit, so he is nice and comfortable and your photos will be perfect!  We are all skilled with animals so you can be assured we will be able to set the scene for a great photo of your special dog or puppy spending time with Santa.

Buy Your Santa Paws Ticket – CLICK HERE.

This year we listened to what you want and instead of lining up, we will pre-sell tickets for designated sessions. This means you don’t have to spend time waiting and you can quickly come and go to make meeting Santa an enjoyable and stress-free experience.
 
For safety we ask that all animals are kept on a lead or in a pet carrier until they meet Santa. As the Cafe is no longer operating, you will be able to wait under cover and inside until it’s your turn, so no more waiting in the heat. It doesn’t take much time to have a photo taken  with Santa, so the line will move quickly.


2020 SANTA PAWS COMMUNITY – RAISING MONEY FOR GUIDE DOGS WA

This year we have partnered Guide Dogs WA to raise much needed funds for their amazing program. Guide Dogs WA is the only Western Australian based provider of Guide Dog training services in the community. Guide Dogs WA provides life changing Guide Dogs and Autism Assistance Dogs.

It takes over two years and costs more than $50,000 to train a Guide or Assistance Dog. Guide Dogs WA relies on the support of the community to provide these life changing services to Western Australians living with low vision, disability and illness.

COST

To have a photo with Santa it will just cost $15, the same price as last year. We know that times are tough, so we didn’t want to increase the price at all. To make it easy, this year we will ask for you to pre-pay for your photo online when you book your session.

You’re welcome to have multiple photos. For instance, if you want one photo of the whole family, and the next photo with just Santa and the dog/s, that is certainly possible. It will just cost $15 for each photo. You won’t have to decide how many photos you want when booking your session, this can be decided on the day.


TREATS – TO GET YOUR DOG TO LOOK AT THE CAMERA

Sometimes we will need to use treats to get dogs to look at the camera. You will know what treat works best for your dog, so you’re encourage to bring their favourite treat along. If you forget, don’t worry, there will be treats available to purchase on the day.


DOG AGGRESSIVE/FEARFUL ANIMALS

If your pooch is not good with other dogs, but good with people they still can have their photo with Santa! We let dogs into the VID Area one by one, so there is no competition for Santa’s attention.

The only time dogs need to be close to one another is waiting for the photo. So, what we suggest is… bring two people to Santa Paws, one waits inside, the other waits in the car with the dogs. When it is time for the photo, you can drive your car close to VID and sneak the dogs in and out. That way no one misses out on photos and everyone stays safe.


FOOD & DRINK

We are working hard to have food and drinks available on the day, stay tuned for more information.


WEATHER

Santa Photos will be taken in VID, and people can wait inside FurBaby, in air conditioned comfort, so don’t worry about the weather. We have you covered to make sure you’re out the sun!
