Sean and I noticed Yolan at the very first agility competition we ever competed in. Sean told me to follow her lead while walking the courses, because she very clearly knows what she’s doing. We watched in awe as she confidently arrived at prize-giving with a cardboard box in anticipation of carrying many many prizes back to her car, and boy, did she win ALL the prizes! Those beloved dogs are sadly retired now, but she’s gained multiple more dogs to train and compete with over the years, and has had just as much success with her newbies. She also has more rescues than I could count. Due to the large number of dogs to photograph in a limited time, and some of the rescues not as efficient at the ‘stay’ as her working dogs, we stuck to simple portraits of each dog. I would LOVE to one day do another shoot for action photographs of these impressive Malinois working. They are simultaneously goofy, beautiful and terrifying!
