Cruisin’

This week is just flying on by! We have already approached Wednesday, mid-week. This talented Afghan puppy is cruising along, too!

Contrary to popular belief, Afghan Hounds are quite intelligent and trainable, as you can see here as the puppy skateboards by. This photograph was taken when the puppy was only 8 weeks old! Credits to world-renowned trainer Diane Bauman for the talented pup!

Lunch?

 

Why not spend some of the last weeks of summer meeting up with some old friends?! Our talented Pyrenean Shepard, Whoopee is certainly interested!

Working with animals in photography as mentioned before can be a lot of fun, but difficult if working with untrained animals. Animals with basic training make good models. Animals with advanced training make great models! As you can see Whoopee has mastered holding things in her mouth for an extended period of time, as she awaits a reply for a lunch date. Not all dogs can do this, they have to be trained to hold the pose which is crucial in being able to create a photograph like this one.

Now, let’s not leave Whoopee hanging too long….Let’s do lunch!

Afghan Hounds Are Smarter Than You Think!

According to Stanley Coren’s The Intelligence of Dogs, the Afghan Hound is the least intelligent dog of the 110 breeds that were ranked. Sorry Mr. Coren, we (and these adorable Afghan puppies) beg to differ.

These precious Afghan Hound puppies are merely 8 weeks old. They are already being trained by their co-owner, world-renowned trainer Diane Bauman and learning fast! Despite where Stanley Coren
ranks Afghan’s in his intelligence scale, you can see for yourself how smart these dogs really are.

Our friend Diane Bauman is now looking for performance homes for some of these pups. They’re far too smart to just sit there and look pretty!
Let us know if you are interested and we can lead you in the right direction.
