A photographer tested the concentration of several pairs of dogs as he captured their reactions to treat time in a series of shots.
Christian Vieler, 47, of Waltrop, Germany, has been a professional dog photographer since 2016. He came up with the idea of snapping 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 Basset Hounds as they hope to become the ultimate good boy.
“I tried to catch the faces of dogs while they are trying to catch a treat in midair, looking shocked, confused, joyful or sad,” Vieler said.
“My favorite image shows two Basset Hounds looking expectant toward the camera,” he added. “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,” Vieler said. “After shooting Snapshots for four years now, I still enjoy every shoot I do.”
