Frisbee Dogs

One of the frisbee dogs that performed at the county fair.
Dogs are some of the nicest people I have ever met. I admit to being head over heels in love with a couple of them. So this summer when I had a chance to watch a young man with his dogs perform before a small crowd at the county fair I was right there in the front row. Hope you enjoy the show!

  6. The one where the dog is straight up is the one that I like the best. The next best would be the last one. My viewpoint is that if you are looking to sell these I am not sure that having the kids faces in the pics would work well. The dog jumpping with just his master was a great one.

    It depends on if you are looking at these pics from a business or enjoyment stand point enjoyment kids are great... as a business I am not sure.

    Great pics and great photography either way.

  9. Beautiful shots ! I like all of them, but I think the last one is my favourite, the dog seems to be suspended in the air, lovely. And I love these dogs too, even I saw them only on TV shows and films.

  13. O cão é um otimo amigo. Tenho 3 cachorros. Uma labrador, uma pibull e uma poodool. São minhas companheriras. Essa raça é muito inteligênte.

  15. Glad you all enjoyed the action shots of the frisbee dogs.

    Nezzy, thanks for your sweet comment. Actually the shots were not as clear as I'd have liked. My shutter speed was 1/400.

    Tom B., these shots were just for fun. Hope you were entertained.
