Good boys! 'Dogs trying to catch treats' is as joyous as you'd hope it would be

Nick Reilly

An animal loving photographer has captured a brilliant set of pictures  that show dogs leaping for treats with their mouths wide open.

The hilarious snaps were taking using a technique which catches the dogs faces a split second before they chow down on tasty biscuits.

They were created by German photographer Christian Vieler, who used a super fast shutter speed to take the shots.

Christian, who included his own Labrador Lotte in the series, said: ‘When I show some people my shots they say the dog looks ugly – but that’s mostly by people who don’t have dogs.

‘For me, however, the images have their own magic.’

Since 2016 Christian has worked as a professional dog photographer.

He added: ‘Every shoot I am looking for that specific moment when the dog is looking as cute or funny as they can be.

‘When I meet my clients – the dogs – I don’t know where the journey will end.

‘So I have to master the challenge of what to do and when to do it in order to get the best results out of the day.’

It’s a dog’s life after all…
