Try this....there should be two to take the photo. One to 'wrangle' the poodles and one on the camera. Don't try to do this in a place where there are a lot of distractions. We spend a lot of time looking for spots that work and aren't too busy. Have the wrangler set the dog and when the dog stays as requested, treat it. Since our dogs understand the command "stay" it makes it a lot easier for us. The camera person needs to concentrate on the pose of the dogs only. As soon as you see something good, take the shot. Do a lot of them because you will probably only get a few really good ones.
