Akita, a senior akita breed dog, cuddles with her owner overlooking the water on the Georges River during her photoshoot with Sydney pet photographer, Pawtastic Photography

Akira is a 9 year old Akita

What does summer time mean to you and your dog?

Hiding from the heat (she's a snow dog), going on adventures whenever possible - she loves road trips.

What are five (5) words that best describe your dog?

Confident, dominant, gentle, loving, protective

What are your favourite things to do with your dog?

Long walks in new places, playing with balls, cuddling on the couch

Senior Akita dog, Akira enjoys her photoshoot with professional pet photographer, Pawtastic Photography 

How would you describe your relationship with your dog?

It's a trusting relationship of mutual understanding and respect. And lots of love.

What do you love most about your dog?

Her intelligence - she has outsmarted me on more than one occasion!

Tell me about your dog.

Akira came into my life out of nowhere one night when I was walking my dog (who has now passed away). She was over 3 years old and her owners needed a new home for her. We adopted her without hesitation and have not looked back. Being an Akita this was not easy for her. She is very clever and emotional so some of her life events such as changing families and losing her partner dog, have impacted her ability to cope with being alone. She has separation anxiety. She loves our cats. She is fierce and if she feels that any members of the family are in danger she will act immediately. More than anything, she is a gentle, curious dog who just loves being around people who love her.

Thank you Jasmina and Akira for taking part in the Dog Days of Summer!

Shreeya + Tam - Day 28 of the Dog Days of Summer | Sydney Pet Photographer

Tam a Jack Russell/Pug mixed breed dog gazes out over her domain in Sydney Park as she is photographed during her Dog Days of Summer session with Pawtastic Photography.

Tam is a 3 and a half year old Jack Russell / pug mix.

What does summer time mean to you and your dog?

Ball throws, walks and snuggling on the couch

What are five (5) words that best describe you dog?

Curious, loving, mischievous, energetic, incorrigible

What are your favourite things to do with your dog?

Dancing with her, snuggling in bed when she is in her placid state, wearing her as a scarf. Playing ball

How would you describe your relationship with your dog?

Playful, loving and unconditional. There's no happier moment than seeing her tail wag her body with excitement upon my arrival. Buying that melts your heart more than her vigorous wagging in an attempt to have you forgive her latest transgression, or when she's lying on the couch, too lazy to move, but wags her tail in acknowledgment of your attention when you ask her to come.

Jack Russell/Pug dog sits in her owners lap, grins up at her owner lovingly during her walk along a boardwalk and smiles amid the bark and greenery at Sydney Park during her professional photoshoot with Sydney based pet photographer, Pawtastic Photography.

What do you love most about your dog?

I love her zest for life, and never ending optimism. Nothing fazes her, and everything is done with 110% commitment. Tam is a 6 kilo dog who thinks she's the size of a Great Dane. There isn't a dog or situation she's met that she didn't think she's the equal of.

Tell me about your dog.

My favorite Tam story is from the park. There were 2 solid sized labs chasing each other, and Tam of course had to get in on the action. She ran at them at full pelt, ready to join in, only to slam into one of the labs and literally bounce off it. She shook herself off, looked momentarily confused at the idea that there might be a dog bigger than her, and immediately contined her attempts to join the game.

Thank you so much Shreeya & Tam for taking part in the Dog Days of Summer!
