Did you know that you can take your pet along to get a Santa family photo?  There are lots of venues on the Gold Coast this Christmas where you can take your best friend along and create a lovely festive memory to send to family and friends. Whether you have a dog, cat, guinea pig, lizard or a fish, there is someone that caters for them, although we are yet to find a venue that takes horse Christmas photos!  Let us know if you find somewhere.

Check the relevant websites for bookings and guidelines.  Generally, you need to ensure your pet is under your control on a leash or in a cage.  It’s always a good idea to make sure your pet is well fed and watered before you go, and we also suggest that you pop a couple of treats in your pocket just in case.

We have put together a list of venues where you can go for your pet Santa photos Gold Coast.  Santa is waiting and can’t wait to meet you all. And if you would like to dress your pet up in a cute Christmas outfit, check out our article on the coolest cat and dog Christmas costumes here.
