Thanks for looking, criticism is welcome as well as help on how to improve next time.
As said before I am very keen to learn all I can regarding canine photography so members with knowledge of this please do comment.

Shame dogs left eye is not sharper, is this acceptable as an image overall?

Well done Karen. Getting better every time! I like th pose here; looking off into the distance, tongue out. I would personally just crop a tad off the right hand side.

Bit of a sucker for GSD pics at the moment since one of mine just came out of hospital with a gastric torsion.
Nice picture with a good expression, but it lacks sharpness for me. Dog fur is a very unforgiving subject as far as sharpness is concerned. I think you got the focus point a little behind the eyes

have not got knowledge canine photography but I would say its the same with any animal with a long nose - focus on the eyes but to get the tip of his nose sharp as well you need a f8 or more depending on the light if not up the iso a bit. A handsome dog though.

Looks more than acceptable to me. I think if you can capture the dogs personality or a twinkle in it's eye then this counts for much more than 100% perfect technique. My dog is black and white and is a nightmare exposure wise to capture. But if I catch him with his tongue hanging out or covered in muck I know I've done good.
