The dogs and I visited a state park, known for its gorgeous bluebells in the spring. So very proud of these two…I was by myself on this photo shoot, so I positioned the dogs, put them in a stay and backed out to take the pictures. People walking by on the trails and they held their stays! Good doggos!!

Powder Shots!

A few of my favorite things in life…dogs and photography. Very fun day this past weekend getting some powder shots! Afterwards let the dogs run and play with some new doggy friends.

Who says show dogs don’t get dirty?!

Bing – Conformation Practice

Practice, practice, practice!  We frequently attend a drop-in conformation class, so that Bing learns to be a show dog.  It’s much harder than it looks!  And we want the dogs to enjoy showing, so we work hard to make it fun for the dog.  Part of that includes getting the dog used to what is expected of them, so it’s an enjoyable experience and not a stressful one come the day of a show.

Here he is at the end of a long class (and an impromptu play session that followed), so a bit done with it all, but still a cooperative puppy.  7 months old.

Side note: Dogs show in conformation, not confirmation.  Conformation is about how the dogs conform to the breed standard.
