Create Magical, Irresistible Memories with Your Dog … and preserve them forever during our unique
Have you ever wondered whether your dog would like playing in the snow?
The truth is that most dogs love the snow, and the pristine white powder and sweeping snow-gums create an incredible backdrop for your photographs!
Friday 22nd July – Sunday 14th August 2022
Dinner Plain Village, Victoria (just 13km from Mount Hotham)
You, your family & your canine best friend
As you know, it can be a challenge finding spectacular holiday destinations which cater for both dogs and humans, and the challenge is even greater when it comes to holiday destinations involving snow because most Victorian snow fields are located in National Parks and dogs are not allowed. I love watching my dog experience ‘the joy of the snow’, and the resulting photographs are some of my favourites!
What’s so special about dogs in the snow? Well, to begin with, it’s a playground like no other they’ll ever experience – from the crispy crackling crust, to the flying powder, and it brings out the playful puppy personality in every dog. … Then there’s the light – and I can hardly begin to tell you how the glittering snow, and luminous atmosphere adds magical reflections, soft lighting effects and shadows to your photographs whether the sun is shining or not.

What dog lovers are saying
I can't recommend highly enough the Aussie Snow Dog Retreats. Kerry was wonderful from the start talking us through what to expect on our shoot, organising our accommodation and making our trip as fun as possible! Kate absolutely loved the snow and we loved exploring the village and surrounds with her. Kerry's extensive knowledge of the area was brilliant in pointing us to the trails around Dinner Plain we could explore, and even took us on a guided tour! We had a ball, and we will definitely be back to create some more memories! Thanks Kerry!

When we discovered that Akemi Photography were holding snow photography sessions at Dinner Plain we had to be there! Taking our Siberian Huskies to the snow was something we had wanted to do for a long time and a snow photoshoot was the perfect excuse to finally make it happen and enjoy a relaxing holiday ourselves. We look forward to returning to Dinner Plain next year for another snow filled adventure. Thank you Kerry!

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderful time at Dinner Plain, it is such a beautiful place to stay and getting awesome photos made the trip even more special. We were surprised how well the dogs took to the snow I think they had just as much fun as we did (maybe even more). Viewing the photos was so exciting we loved reliving the trip, your photography skills and your ideas were amazing. Every photo was awesome. We will definitely be doing the trip again next year and some of our family and friends will be coming with their fur kids too.
