Flying dogs will make your day infinitely better

Bet you didn’t know dogs can fly. An amateur photographer has captured spaniels, bull dogs, pugs and huskies soaring through the air as they leap over obstacles and hurtle towards the camera. Daniel Sheridan used a combination of treats and trial and error to get the dogs running in his direction for the shoot.

He laid down logs in a clearing of the woods and got someone to hold the animals at one end of the pathway.

The dogs would then be released and sprint towards Daniel, who was at the other end armed with treats and his camera. The resulting pictures show the pets floating in the air, many of them with lolling tongues and wagging tails. ‘It all started with a social media appeal really when I asked people if they would be willing to give up an hour of their time to meet me with their dogs,’ Daniel said.
