I have a million more. Anyone know how to prevent it or fix it?
A dog's retina reflect light much better than a human's do. It's the direct flash that does it. You can use a flash diffuser on your camera that you can buy, tape some tissue paper over the flash to "mute" the flash, or use a paper or plastic plate to reflect the flash from your camera onto a ceiling.
Outside the best bet is the tissue over the flash, or try and use a separate light source from a different angle like a wide-beam flashlight or spot.
I got advice from a cameraman...
Ignorance is Fixable
Contrary to popular thought, life does not hinge around big decisions at crisis points, but small everyday decisions that lead almost inexorably to crisis. Virtue lies in not being lazy when choosing, even in a small way.
