Cleveland’s Next Top Dog Models

Cross another one off the bucket list- Hunter has fulfilled his dream to be a professional dog model. (I don’t think it was a dream of Roscoe’s, but he was a good sport).

A couple weekends ago, Hunter and Roscoe got their shot to hit the big time as dog models. Late last year I signed them both up for Brittany Graham Photography’s dog model call. Brittany provides stock photos for the Darwin Dogs blog (a must read for every dog owner) so she put out a call for dog models on her website. Brittany needs dogs of all kinds – shy, hyper, old, young, big, small – for the blog as well as her own personal pet photo projects. I knew that with their opposite personalities, hyper Hunter and shy Roscoe would provide a wide range of different photos that she can hopefully use. And, of course, I couldn’t resist a chance to get  professional photos taken of them.

They were both total naturals and Brittany got some really great photos. I think Hunter knew exactly what was going on. Once I pulled out his toy, he started hamming it up, running around and giving her some great action shots. I love how Brittany was able to capture the personalities of both dogs and get such great photos of them just being themselves at home. (Brittany is also great with dogs, by the way, and her calm, positive demeanor put Roscoe, who is often  wary of new people, right at ease.)

Here are some of my favorite shots from the photo shoot.

Hunter wanted me to add that he is available for photo shoots and special appearances and to contact his agent (which I’m guessing is me?) for bookings.
