Pro photo shoot photos

These were from the “action” shoot in a studio a couple months ago.
I LOVE how they came out!! All photos below are taken by Brian Steege
And one of Dazzle’s photos is/was on his home page, so I think he was happy with how they came out too! The originals are much sharper in focus than these small downloaded versions.

Camp 1

The June camp was a lot of fun!! It was a great group of people and dogs and wonderful weather. I didn’t have my camera out much, but did manage a few photos.

My favorite portrait of the session

And his costume for the costume contest that took first place!
The rare, curly tailed equine. I thought he would be a bit more stressed by the wraps, saddle, muzzle, etc. and have his tail down, but he took it all in stride and had his tail in it’s happy position 🙂 I started on the construction of the saddle LAST year but didn’t get it done, so I finally got it finished for this year.

Dazzle “helping” me with a presentation. I think he felt a belly rub was more important than whatever I was talking about 🙂

Working on the Search and Rescue Urban Agility badge. Barrels are no problem

4 No prob with barrels

Also no problem jumping over a 42″ gap (& he nailed the landing as deftly as a cat)

3 SAR Agility Levels

He’s a great demo dog! Here he is helping me demo how to teach “heel” position

Now I’m prepping for the July camp!
