Yikes | Halifax pet photographer

By August 3, 2015Dogs

Yikes is fast… like crazy-fast. He comes from a line of award-winning fast border collies and it shows. I wanted to take some photos of him that capture his speed and character! He looks a little crazy running, but that’s part of his charm!
Dogs who practice in different dog sports (Agility, Flyable, Disc) are exceptional to photograph; the determination and drive that is apparent in their expression and sheer will to keep going and doing is amazing. It was reaching 30˚ out today and Yikes would have kept going and going!

We started with some running photos first, and boy is he FAST.

Then we started to do some disc work. Border Collie, Sport Dog, Frisbee, Halifax Nova Scotia, Dog and Pet Photography by Kristine Rose Photography Border Collie, Sport Dog, Frisbee, Halifax Nova Scotia, Dog and Pet Photography by Kristine Rose Photography Border Collie, Sport Dog, Frisbee, Halifax Nova Scotia, Dog and Pet Photography by Kristine Rose Photography Border Collie, Sport Dog, Frisbee, Halifax Nova Scotia, Dog and Pet Photography by Kristine Rose Photography

By now you probably think Yikes is a crazy superstar, so to keep his ego down I thought I should show you at least a couple misses 😉Border Collie, Sport Dog, Frisbee, Halifax Nova Scotia, Dog and Pet Photography by Kristine Rose Photography

After what seemed like a million perfect throws we spent some time lounging in the shade, enjoying a nice sunny summer day. Yikes was perfectly happy to roll around with his frisbees, well, when he wasn’t licking my face- of course!

So what do you think? Crazy, athletic, goof? Yeah, that’s what I think too!

Do you practice any sports with your dogs? I’d love to hear about it!
