Working Canine: Photographer Reveals Some Of The Hardest Jobs For Canines


Cats may lounge round all day lengthy and plan homicide (or extra lounging), however many canine get to work. Photographer Andrew Fladeboe travelled to Norway and New Zealand to take footage of assorted working canine for his venture The Shepherd’s Realm. Serving to their human handlers with varied tough duties, these canine herd sheep and cows, sniff for bombs and conduct search and rescue operations.

“I believe one of many causes I made a decision to concentrate on animals is as a result of I didn’t suppose anybody was portraying them the way in which I noticed them,” he wrote to Slate. “The animals in our works stand on their very own as sentient beings. They occupy the print with an aura of dignity and command a stage of respect from the viewer. They aren’t anthropomorphic images of animals, however a celebration of what these animals are for what they’re. It’s artwork for animals sake, not animals for arts sake.”

It’s all true. Both posing in entrance of majestic vistas of Norway and New Zealand, or laborious at work barking at cows, these canine seem like actually magnificent animals. I’m wondering in the event that they hate Mondays, too.
