K9 Basics








I spent time over at Adlerhorst Police K-9 Academy this past week. There was a new class of K-9 Officers graduating with their newly assigned Shepherds from the Basic Handlers Class. Well, most of the time I choose to photograph right on the field but for this particular excercise I chose to shoot from up on a ladder! What I think is most impressive about this breed is just how smart they really are. I watched and listened to how the trainers and handlers call out commands to these dogs in another language and how they immediately respond in obedience to either refrain or attack...with a bite! Ouch!

wow that is some great use of lightroom. It really dramatizes the action. I felt like i was watching a jerry bruckheimer production. Good job.
Can't wait for you presentation in August! :)

Great choice of color! I do not know if I would have the courage to get near those dogs!

Like Melissa said, it looks like it would hurt if one of them bit you!
