Afternoon with Belconnen Dog Obedience Club – Canberra Pet Photographer

I was invited down to the Belconnen Dog Obedience Club tricks training session at Mitchell today to watch the dogs perform.  I met Nic, who runs the tricks training session, at A Pooch Affair in December last year.  She has three Cardigan Welsh Corgis.

I could not resist bringing down my camera to capture the dog performing. It was a beautiful warm summer’s afternoon.  

It was a great afternoon where I got to spend time with many different dog breeds.  I was like a little boy in a lolly shop as I was surrounded by all these pooches.  There were Cardigan Welsh Corgis, border collies/kelpie cross, King Charles Spaniels, and a couple of Papillons.  There was also one breed I had not heard before – a Japanese Shiba, a breed of hunting dog from Japan.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon which allowed me to continue to hone my pet photography skills.   The light was not the best as it was early afternoon.  We found a nice shady spot with some speckled light for some portraits.  Somehow I think that many of these dogs were seasoned performers as they were not shy in front of the camera.  It also helps that many of the dogs were very trained making it easy for me to take some beautiful images.  They were all absolute stars!!!  They were jumping through hola hoops, over small jumps and some were jumping over body parts.

I also got the opportunity to a dance with dogs performance.  I was totally thrilled watching how trained the dog was.  Each of the dogs was rewarded with lots of treats for their efforts.  I would like to thank Nic from Belconnen Dog Obedience Club for inviting me down today.

If you are looking for portraits of your pets, do not hesitate to contact me here.  I guarantee that you will have images that you will cherish for years to come.
