HILARIOUS action shots of man’s best friend catching treats have been released in a new calendar.

The side-splitting snaps show the pooches’ joy as the treats travel towards them in mid-air. A hungry pug is captured with its tongue lolled out to catch the tasty snack, an adorable Australian shepherd is hypnotised by a treat as it brushes its lips and a Golden retriever salivates wildly in anticipation.

Other heart-warming photos show two terriers looking on whilst their buddy dives for the delicious morsel, whilst the calendar’s cover Husky star gets ready to gobble up the grub.

The pictures have been released by photographer, Christian Vieler, in his Dogs Catching Treats 2019 calendar.

Christian who is based in Waltrop, Germany, has been taking photos in this amusing style since 2013 – he explained how his own dog, Lotte, inspired him when he was playing around with his camera one day.

“To make her move and in order to test the ‘freezing options’ of the flash, I started throwing treats at her, days later, when I cleaned my hard drive, I noticed how funny the shots were,” said Christian.

“I asked myself: What is the magic behind these photographs? I think the expressions of the dogs remind us of well-known feelings like desire, loss, pain or joy. And that’s what we normally don’t see that clear in the faces of our dogs.

“All models behave because I am the guy with the treats, and I have many treats in my bags.”

Most of Christian’s images are taken at his studio where he makes sure the dogs are as comfortable as possible before starting the shoot where he uses a low-level flash as not to scare the dogs. If Christian notices a dog is uncomfortable, he’ll stop shooting straight away.
