Oh my poor dogs. The things they they go through for DPC. Had to teach Piper how to hold still...she is not really balancing the 13 treats on her nose, but she is holding her head still so my daughter could place the treats on top of her nose using a string for balance. She would hold each pose for about 5 seconds and then try to grab a nibble. You can see where she actually did nibble on a few of the treats, prior to the end of the shoot. The treats were lightly glued together...so she did not get nearly as much as she wanted. Thanks Piper for being such a good dog!!!

Here is an out-take with Opal, a different dog:

Congrats on the well deserved Red, Jen. You really made me believe your dog could balance the whole stack (shame on you you didn't train him properly :)
