Favorite Dog Photo Books



Discover the stunning collection of photographs that shows the majesty, playfulness, and joy that is man’s best friend: As a National Geographic photographer, taking pictures of lions, tigers, and bears was a regular day’s work for Vincent Musi, but in 2017 he gave himself a new challenge: dogs. Using the same lighting and photographic techniques he uses for his National Geographic photography, Musi spent a year shooting portraits of dogs and compiling them into a book complete with all of the tail wags, wet noses, and dogs of all shapes and sizes.



This adorable and hilarious collection of dog photographs, captures our furry best friends anticipating, catching — some more successfully than others — and enjoying a scrumptious tidbit.

Christian caught dozens of eager dogs at one of their favorite moments — treat time.

From a tenacious terrier to a goofy golden retriever, these often hilarious and surprisingly beautiful photographs capture each dog’s unique personality in a way any dog owner will recognize and that all dog lovers will enjoy!



From the water’s surface, it’s a simple exercise: a dog’s leap, a splash, and then a wet head surfacing with a ball, triumphant.

But beneath the water is a chaotic ballet of bared teeth and bubbles, paddling paws, fur and ears billowing in the currents. From leaping Lab to diving Dachshund, the water is where a dog’s distinct personality shines through; some lounge in the current, paddling slowly, but others arch their bodies to cut through the water with the focus and determination of a shark.
