Dog owner reveals secret to getting her seven pets to pose for photos

These are the stunning pictures of seven adorable dogs – which could be the most obedient pooches in Scotland.

Kaylee Robertson has six Shetland Sheepdogs and one Alaskan Klee Kai which she says are like ‘fully- trained models’.

The 28-year-old’s clever pups have been taught to stand together while she takes pictures of them striking a pose.

Look left! The seven well-behaved canines look majestic blowing in the wind by the sea during one of their adorable shoots

Kaylee Robertson, from Scalloway in Scotland, loves getting her pooches to pose up for adorable photos in scenic settings

Perfectly positioned: Kaylee has a knack for getting her pooches to pose in artistic positions. Here she used an attractive-looking rock by the sea as a prop

Obedient: Kaylee’s incredibly well-behaved canines wait patiently for their picture to be taken – and even point their heads in the same direction!

The cute pups, whose ages range from six months to six years old, are called Fenton, Thiago, Gimli, Mercy, Ghost, Murphy and Jara.

Some of the dogs, who are named after Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones characters, have been posing since they were four weeks old. 

Kaylee, an ambulance technician from Scalloway, the largest of the Shetland Islands, says the trick to having such well-trained dogs is ‘bribery’.

Ready, steady, go! Even when making a chaotic dash onto the beach, there appears to be method in the madness as Kaylee snaps a majestic shot

Models in the making: The seven adorable dogs look very at home in front of the lens, this time posing with some piles of rocks on the beach

Kaylee roped in more well-behaved pooches for this photo, posing up her subjects in front of the deep blue sea

‘We give them lots of treated and positive reinforcement,’ she said.

‘When they had sat nicely and looked at the camera we would throw them a ball. They associate it as a game.’

When Kaylee gives the command for them to ‘release’ they are rewarded with a ball, which they all end up squabbling over.

Are we done yet? The long-haired pups look eager to break their poses and go for a scamper along the beach in this stunning photo

And the dogs have become local celebrities, with patients always asking Kaylee about them when riding in the back of her ambulance.

The avid dog-owner had one Shetland Sheepdog but decided she wanted more. So she decided to surprise her husband-to-be by bringing home one every week after they moved in together.

She said: ‘He was so mad. I had it all planned, I was going to make him a nice meal when he came home and surprise him. Now he will kiss the dogs before he kisses me!’

The doggy photographer says the best advice for taking photos of your pooch is to keep a happy dog.

‘You can’t take a pretty picture of a dog if they look sad. So relax, enjoy the moment and when the timing is right – take the shot,’ she said.

Kaylee began training the animals as a child with her first dog Flint who was a Shetland Sheepdog.

She said: ‘I had ten beautiful years with that gorgeous soul who I used to show at the local dog competitions. We won pretty much everything and I also scooped the junior handler with him.’

Do you think it might rain? The adorable dogs look very comfortable in front of the lens, gazing obediently into the camera

Who’s the tallest? Kaylee experimented with arranging her dogs in height order for this eye-catching shot on the beach
