The Puli hails from Hungary, although we shot this example in Denver,
> Colorado. Andy is the dog s name. Originally the breed was developed for herding and guarding sheep. We wanted to cover different dog behaviours in our project as well as how they look. The Puli is striking in form, with its heavily corded coat, but also is a very intelligent and active dog that draws on a heritage as a working sheep dog. By getting it to jump, we wanted to get that coat having its full dynamic quality. For the successful shot we were down on the floor shooting between the legs of the owner, in a studio in Denver. By getting down behind the owner, this was the way we could get the dog running right at camera. For the dog to grow its coat to this stage of maturity can take up to six years and we had to work hard to find the right example.
