Over the last several weeks, we have been experimenting with taking and sending photos to our clients while their pets are staying with us. We have refined what we can and can’t do and now have a policy in place. It is located on our top tool bar, but I am posting it below as well.
PHOTO POLICY AT CANINE CAMPUS
Canine Campus will take pictures of our guests as a courtesy to our clients and for use on Canine Campus social media (website, facebook, instagram).
We will receive permission from new clients during their tour on whether or not they will allow us to use pictures of their pets on social media. Photos will not use last names, and will not be posted until clients have picked up their pets.
We are NOT professional photographers. Do not expect professional quality pictures.
We are not in the business of taking pictures, we are in the business of caring for your pets, so taking pictures is a courtesy only, NOT a service we are providing (or charging for) as part of our boarding or daycare packages.
We will attempt to take ONE picture of your pet during each of the following:
- Each boarding stay
- First ever day care
- Every other month for regular day care dogs
Pictures will be taken by a staff member who is not actively working/exercising our animals. I cannot jeopardize safety by having someone who is taking care of our animals being distracted by photographing them.
The vast majority of pictures will be taken on Saturday. Pictures will be uploaded to each client’s photo gallery and emailed on Sunday. If a dog is only here during the week, we will make other arrangements to take the picture, but uploads will still occur on Sundays. Please honor our schedule and staffing so we can accomodate everyone.
The photos will be resized allowing for easy posting and emailing. We will NOT email or upload large data files, so please do not ask for them. It may just be one picture to you, but it’s one of thousands for us. Our software and hardware does have limitations.
Social media posts will normally occur on the Tuesday following your pet’s boarding stay.
Photos will remain in your photo gallery indefinitely.
Everyone enjoys getting photos of their dogs while they are away. We will do our best to accommodate that, however, please respect our staffing, scheduling, and expertise in getting a photo while your pet is staying with us.
