OUTTAKES:


I predict this will be about 6.4 the point variance btwn participants and non-participants will be high - likely .8 I am frustrated that he is in need of a groom; but our groomer had to cancel so he doesn't have his spa day until later in the week - but this was a last minute/last day shot due to a rescheduling of my own schedule--so he is a bit messy :-)

ETA: Well this did a lot better than I expected. Shocked, and happy with a new PB!! Yay!!

He has been posing for years now, he LOVES it. This particular time, once I got the photo; I had forgotten to bring his treats in and he wouldn’t leave the area until I went and got the treats and gave him some. As though I couldn’t be trusted! LOL.


My dogs all LOVE to pose. In fact going into the "studio" (aka my spare bedroom) is a mission, because they all storm in wanting to be "the model for the day" :-)

thats so funny .. about the treats .. ;)

maybe I will be able to get mr tod to pose like your pup one of these days ..
I need to be more consistent with training tho .. he's the smart one in the relationship ..

what's your pup's name btw .. :)


This is Sawyer — sometimes Soy Sauce. He loves it a lot. Lots and lots of treats in the beginning, and an extra set of hands is helpful in the beginning. There are many times where I still need help for sure and it can be frustrating as heck sometimes.

What a beautiful dog, I can only imagine how difficult it was to get this shot. I hope you rewarded your pooch accordingly. I gave you my top mark.
