    Take along a new toy or enticing treats like hotdog bits.

    All of mine have had professional shoots, some outside, some in studios.

    The studio sometimes provides treats and toys, sometimes not.

    I always buy something new and amazing so they can be posed

    I take photos for the RSPCA do I have dealt with all types of dogs and cats.
    Take treats, anything with liver is usually a Favourite, as is any meat that is a special time thing.
    The things other than food I find the best are squeaky toys ( I personally just use the plastic squeaker from a toy my dog chewed up).
    I have also used sounds from my iPhone apps to get super cute head tilts.
    The cat poles with the things that dangle are also good if you dangle it just above the camera lens.

    Other than that just get everyone who attends to be really happy and sound excited, don't get frustrated if the dog won't pose, remember how new and scary that something like a camera might be to a dog.
    I know there was one cat that was terrified of my camera but posed nicely for an iPhone... Good luck

    I too have had done some past work for the RSPCA and also freelance work. I find that high pitched and bizarre noises work really well for catching attention. Also treats and new toys. Evereyone being happy (without being over the top will work wonders).
