I find the reaction of wild life to my dog extemely interesting. They are simply not spooked by him as long as he's not moving directly at him. While I was warned that a dog and wildlife photography do not mix, he actually benefits my shooting about 90 percent of the time, and is rarely a negative. In some cases, as in shooting Scaups, he is the only reason I was able to get close-ups.

He actually LIKES animals, and his vibes are non threatening. Without training, when he sees me assume shooting mode, he heads off at an angle, and keeps the attention of whatever I'm shooting, allowing me to generally get much closer. I've taken friends and Their dogs to the marsh, and their frantic activity, and unrestrained joy, scares everything away. Chato however is very calm.

(He's also useful as a means of getting the white balance right... )
