Behind-the-scenes: our celebrity dog exhibition

Some backstage shots from the making of The Company of Dogs…

Months of planning and preparation has gone into PetsPyjamas latest project – a stunning and intimate portrait collection of man’s best friend, all shot by renowned animal photographer Gerrard Gethings. Featuring a host of celebrity pets and residents of Dogs Trust, each photograph is to be auctioned off with all proceeds going towards Dogs Trust to help them continue their outstanding work in dog welfare.

The saying goes ‘never work with animals or children’  – but apart from a surprise toilet incident or two – all of our furry friends were an absolute pleasure to work with! Here are a few of our favourite backstage shots:
