Carving any dog can be challenging.
the way they sit or move,
make them special in our personal world.
Capturing the lfie and essence of these social members of our family is what I strive for every time I carve.
It takes lots of practice.
A representation of a general dog breed can easily be accommodated. But if you wish to commission a carving of your dog, the most helpful photos you can supply would be clear, front and side views that capture their shape, proportions and coloring.
The better the job you do, the better I can do.
