Anyone who’s ever spent time around dogs will know that few things will set them off more than the sight of someone reaching for their favourite treats.

Some dogs will jump up, some lick their chops, and most will give their undivided attention to the food at hand.

To capture these adorable moments, a photographer has snapped the reactions of several dogs as they spot treats in their owner’s hands.

From big dogs to little dogs, their faces universally light up when they see snacks.

While they reacted in different ways, from sitting politely to a cheeky bark, all of them had their eyes firmly set on the prize.

In addition to that, as you’ll soon see, they all look adorable.
