Last week I had the very fun job of taking photos for The Dog Coach’s new website (it’s still under construction, but you can bookmark it for later and in the meantime check out their Facebook page here).


You might recognise these two lovely ladies – Aggy was AJ’s Dog Training (only the best puppy school in the whole of Sydney) and Amy used to own Happy Paws Fitness. They’ve joined forces and, together with their equally lovely team, they do puppy schools, dog walking, dog training and in-home consultations.

They had no trouble finding super cute models for the shoot. Here they are joined by Peaches and Alaska.


They weren’t just pretty faces though, all the dogs knew sit and stay which made my job so much easier.



Little Tucker will make anything into a toy. Despite my big bag of things that squeak he was more interested in this pine cone that he’d found.


Peaches was happy with a stick, or a toy, she wasn’t fussed so long as she’d stolen it from someone else.


Crowd favourite Harry the Staffy is one of The Dog Coach’s clients too. He goes on daily walks to keep him out of trouble while his owner is at work.



These two play so well together. I was amazed to see Peaches out-run Harry. She’s quite the little pocket rocket.


This is my future life right here – a Staffy and a Frenchie. One day.


As the sun was setting and the girls were trying to round up their charges to bring them home, little madam here was still hooning around like a lunatic! That was when I should have pocketed her. Damn my slow reflexes!
