Behind the scenes with our Dermcare Dogs


Ever wondered where we find our fur models for our posters and brochures?

Many of the pets seen in our brochures and posters are part of our Dermcare family, either owned by staff and their friends, or patients of our Dermatology clinic.

Although our pets are perfectly behaved at home and in the office, it can be daunting with all the lights and sounds on a photo shoot. While we always end up getting a great shot, sometimes it takes a little patience (and lots of treats) to get our subjects posed!


Jackie, our clinical nurse, has 7 exceptionally well-behaved dogs, who stole the show on our recent shoot!

Here is her newest dog Tim Tam, a tiny little Pomeranian who looks even smaller amongst all the equipment:

Here is Jacki’s team of larger dogs, in their Wallabies jersies for our “Australian Made” themed shoot:

With a high five to end the day:


It can be a long day in the studio with 13 or 14 dogs to photograph, but it’s always great fun. Many thanks to Mike Curtain Photography; his endless patience and perfect fake bark mean we always get the best out of our models!
