@BorderNerd’s Canine #CatchSeries

"I noticed that my dogs make the funniest faces when catching treats," says Aki (@bordernerd), who shares photos of her two retired search and rescue dogs on Instagram. “So I decided to photograph them catching different things … balls, kibbles, treats and such. Bubbles gave me the funniest pictures.”

Aki catalogs these striking and often humorous photos with the #catchseries hashtag. Since sharing her first #catchseries photo, hundreds of other dogs have joined the fun.

Interested in trying your hand at a #catchseries portrait with your pup? Aki offers these tips: “Take the pictures in daylight or in a well lit area to avoid blurry pictures. Learn the timing by tossing small treats. I usually press the shutter as I toss the item. There are no rules with #catchseries as long as you and the dog have good time!”
