This is great information. About to shoot a lot of therapy dogs for a local hospital, so this comes at a really great time. And now I know to shoot wide shots first…and switch up angles for editing. Plus, I now know to let the animals do their thing and change my “initial” scripting as necessary.

From experience, shooting animals comes down to one peculiar thing, lots of patience. By the way, what information are you talking about?

Your relationship with animals is key, just like your people skills when directing people. Talk to them. Literally explain what you are doing and why and let them feel your intentions. They’ll do what they can after you connect.
