It's a shame the hair is across the eye as this should be the point of interest. With a dog of this colouring, wait for nice evening light to bring out the orange. Its usually best to lose the collars too. Its a lovely model though!

Your focus point is on the end of the nose. People or animal shots have to have the point of focus on the eye to work well (unless you are using a very small DOF to emphasize a certain feature).

A good effort and one worth doing again as the dog is great.

this is good and the background is nicely out of focus,

with such a busy dog you might try the continuous auto focus and set your camera to continuous advance (multiple pictures) and choose your favorite

All KC's are beautiful (I'm a fellow owner and besotted by them) but as someone above said they are "busy" and hard to pin down. The devil is in the detail and that's what makes a nice shot a good shot. in the absence of hours of patience, lots of exposures on burst mode can indeed help.

Technicalities with this one - you've done quite a good job with the exposure, it can be difficult to get detail in the darker fur without blowing out some of the white fur to purewhite. Yes, there's more focus on the nose than the eyes, and the hair across the eye spoils it. i'd also like to see a tiny bit more space between the dog's head and the top of the frame
