There’s a new calendar filled with photos of dogs catching treats and it’s adorable.
The photos show different dogs’ joy as they catch treats in the air.
The pictures were taken by photographer Christian Vieler, who created the Dogs Catching Treats 2019 calendar.
Take a look at the photos below:
This is one very cute chap
These little guys are adorable
He’s really set on catching that treat
Just look at the concentration on this pup’s face
This big fella looks so happy!
Isn’t he beautiful?
Christian, who is based in Waltrop, Germany, has been taking photos in this amusing style since 2013 – he explained how his own dog, Lotte, inspired him when he was playing around with his camera one day.
‘To make her move and in order to test the ‘freezing options’ of the flash, I started throwing treats at her, days later, when I cleaned my hard drive, I noticed how funny the shots were,’ said Christian.
‘I asked myself: What is the magic behind these photographs? I think the expressions of the dogs remind us of well-known feelings like desire, loss, pain or joy. And that’s what we normally don’t see that clear in the faces of our dogs.
‘All models behave because I am the guy with the treats, and I have many treats in my bags.’
Most of Christian’s images are taken at his studio where he makes sure the dogs are as comfortable as possible before starting the shoot where he uses a low-level flash as not to scare the dogs.
If Christian notices a dog is uncomfortable, he’ll stop shooting straight away.
Dogs Catching Treats 2019 is available to buy from Christian’s for approximately £22.42 and can be shipped worldwide.
