Dogs are often referred to as man’s best friend – and if you’re a pooch owner then you’ll no doubt know this to be true. But it isn’t just dogs who hold a special place in our hearts, and pets of all kinds often become such an important part of the family that we’d do just about anything to make them happy.

If you have a beloved pet in the family, then you likely enjoy pampering and spoiling them as much as the next pet owner – and showing off photos of them to friends is all part and parcel of celebrating them. Some pet owners, however, are going one step further and commissioning professional portraits of their cats, dogs, horses, rabbits and even hamsters to hang on their living room walls – creating a veritable shrine to them that will still be sitting in pride of place for years to come.

Wonderful experiences with pet portraits

From day trips to holidays, long countryside walks to sunny days in the garden, pets give us many happy memories over the years, and outings and nature strolls simply wouldn’t be the same without them by our side. So, what better way to capture moments like these than with a realistic and life-like pet portrait?

There are many professional artists out there who have the skill and talent to turn a favourite photo into a much-loved pet portrait that truly brings it to life and will cement any animal’s place in the family.

 If you have a loved one who simply can’t bear to be without their pet, then a pet portrait can make for an incredibly thoughtful gift that is certain to put a smile on their face. Sadly, our furry friends tend to live much shorter lives than humans do, so having a piece of memorabilia to evoke happy memories of times spent together over the years is priceless and can be a great way to aid the grieving process.
