Project DOG is a new grassroots movement celebrating dogs and promoting responsible dog ownership through a creative, modern dog photography project. The quest is simple. To find and photograph the AKC’s 170+ recognized dog breeds and their rescue dog counterparts (340 dogs total), living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Say what? …For every AKC breed photographed, a rescue dog of the same breed will be given the same royal photographic treatment. The result? An awesome book and new dog social networking/resource website. The American Kennel Club (AKC) is not affiliated with nor endorses this project.
November 2011 update: We have found all of the dogs and have gone to print!! But it’s not too late to get your dog featured on our website! If you have an purebred dog -or- a rescue dog of one of the AKC recognized breeds, submit him/her using the submission form to be featured on our site!
Here is a sample layout for the book:
About This Site
- To document the dog search and feature dog submission profiles
- Offer a place for rescue organizations to showcase the dogs who have been saved by their time and service
- Offer breed and rescue info for new dog owners (coming soon!)
- Free localized pet-service directory with reviews (coming soon!)
WHO IS DOING THIS?
Kira Stackhouse here, San Francisco-based award-winning Pet Photographer, Web/Graphic Designer, Marketeer, Geek/Nerd, Foodie extraordinaire. Pets are my favorite subjects to photograph, and the sole reason why I started my photography business 4 years ago.
My work has been seen in many publications including BARK Magazine, Doggie Aficionado, SanFrancisco, 7×7, DRAFT, many dog breed books and more. I am an exclusive dog photographer for Pet Food Express’ My Mutt Program and this year I was voted BayList’s Best Pet Photographer in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Ps. I love pets so much that I also have a dog clothing and accessories company called Scutte. I make stuff out of recycled materials (and cat toys too!). It’s eco friendly and super stylish!
