William said, ‘I was over the moon to win last year’s photo competition. The prizes were fantastic, especially my framed pic of Buddy.’


William’s top tips for taking a winning shot


·         Choose a sunny day and think about going outdoors to get the perfect shot

·         Show your pets having fun and doing their favourite things

·         Wait until your pet is relaxed and happy, don&39;t try and make them pose
