I had the pleasure of photographing this extremely alert and attentive Welsh sheep dog, Mia, and her human, Lollie, in Wantage, Oxfordshire.


Lollie runs The Wantage Pet Company. She focuses mainly on dogs and offers training and dog walking, as well as a range of nutritional snacks. Setting up and running this company follows on from a career caring for and developing animals at the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA) collections, as well as at an elite husky kennel in Sweden.


For the first part of the hour I spent with them, squirrels were required to be chased! But pretty quickly Mia allowed us to get down to the business of getting some lovely photos! As you can see, the sheep dog trait means that she is always on the lookout for interesting things in her environment - look at those ears and eyes! Gorgeous....
