This is our German Shepherd, Sarge. He's 10 months old and just learning how to play Frisbee. Our last GSD loved to play Frisbee and he and I played almost every day. My wife and daughter can't throw it very well which makes it harder to get good shots, but they try. I wish I had taken his lead off in the last two pictures. C&C is always welcomed and appreciated. EXIF is embedded.

Thanks for all of the comments.

MinhThien - I think it is 1/800th of a second. They were shot with a MKIIN and a 400/2.8

Great shots. I have a 11 mo old Lab that I am trying to teach to play frisbee, but he doesn't seem to want to catch it, he just wants me to throw it as far as I can so he can retrieve.

Thanks Mike. We started out using multiple disc's, real short tosses and then gradually increased the distance and decreased the number of discs. We're now down to 2 discs and I use those because at 10 months he just has boundless energy and needs to run. Good luck teaching your lab, at 11 months I'm sure he's a handful.

Nice going! #3 is a killer shot to bad the leash is still on him.

What lens were these done with? I can't get over how sharp they are

I think these are my favorite GSD pics to date, you should throw them up in the german shepherd thread
