A photographer tested the concentration of several pairs of dogs as he captured their reactions in a series of photo – enticing them with treats.
Christian Vieler, 47, from Waltrop, Germany, who has been a professional dog photographer since 2016, came up with the idea of shooting two dogs catching treats simultaneously and the outcome will have you howling.
The series of images, published in September 2017, show dogs including a pair of Labradors, two Border Collies and a couple of Bassett Hounds as they hope to become the ultimate good boy.
Christian said: “I tried to catch the faces of dogs while they are trying to catch a treat in the midair, looking shocked, confused, joyful or sad.
“My favourite image shows two Basset Hounds, looking expectant towards the camera, their eyes are telling a story, demanding and a little bit of disbelief.
“I am grateful to have the chance to work as a professional dog photographer. After shooting Snapshots for four years now, I still enjoy every shoot I do.”
