Schools Back

If your kids are not back at school already then as mine they will be soon. We have had a very full and busy summer and after a having a leaking water pipe at home soaking the floors and walls of our house, it is all now nearly completed and we are moving back in.

Just sat here tidying some stuff up and found an image of my Collie Maya in Feburary 2017, Dogs Today Magazine. I have been fortunate enough to have been selected for their section, “The Best Dog Photographs in the World” section numerous times.  Look out for the September issue!  Its a great magazine.

This image was taken up on the Ridgeway on a stormy day. I like the fact that you can just see the sheep behind her. Although she does Agility she was bred to work sheep but was not so keen on the idea!

Dogs Today Magazine

The new year has got off to a good start for me with the Awards at the guild and some press coverage with the Oxford Times, Witney Gazette and Oxford mail.

I have also been fortunate to have had some more images published in Dogs Today Magazine in “The Best Dog Photographs in the world” section.

I have got a little behind with my blogs as I have been away doing some dog training. So thought I would do a little catch up here for January and February.

Love the front cover on this months edition. I have a real soft spot for Lurchers. Up until recently I have always had one, always rescues and have loved each of them. They are such lovely natured dogs and don’t need the exercise that everyone thinks they do. They make great pet dogs.

Some great issues addressed this month, Puzzle the Muzzle, Aiding homeless, raising awareness with the missing dog calendar and much more.

The image published for me this month was taken on the Ridgeway whilst out on a walk. The little dog is a cross breed terrier, very very sweet and it was definitely the ears that did it for me on this one!

Often the owners don’t want to be in the image, but this is a good compromise. It gives the sense of closeness with the owner but with the focus on the dog.

A Valentines theme for this edition..some great images in this magazine. The magazine had an image of a dog with a Red heart balloon and that inspired me to do a few images of my dogs with a similar theme and also had someone book a session to get the same.

Another image for me in the  “The Best Dog Photographs in the world” section. This time one in keeping with the weather we have been having recently. I like most dog owners at present are fed up of the rain, puddles and mud… nothing like a good shake to get dry!

The Magazine has some great articles, New life for lab Beagles, Recovering Greyhounds and the dog crush this month is all about Labradoodles.
