How to Walk a Dog by erinwitzel How to Walk a Dog by erinwitzel
EDIT: Now available as a print on my online store!: erinwitzeldesigns.storenvy.com…

An assignment from my Senior Illustration class. We had to choose a few "How to" do somethings, and create an illustration for it.

This one is for "How to Walk a Dog"
or many dogs, for that matter. Or many different kinds of dogs. I think, I just really wanted to draw dogs (in this style).

My favorite pair, has got to be, the lady and her Chihuahua, because it makes me laugh. What's your favorite pair? How do you walk your dog??

(My dog is something like the Lab, but not overly crazy. He's just fast-paced!)
________________________________________________

EDIT: WOW Thank you for the DD! I am very surprised and thrilled! And keep the comments coming -- I love to hear about how you walk your own dog! ;)

this is funny and pretty well drawn. I adore your style.
As to your question, hmm... I'm neither of these. I own a Japanese Akita and Finnish Lapphund both proper trained and they behave well (so did my Shiba that passed away). So they don't pull on the leash and off leash they're obedient as well (So we're the type of owner and dogs that are just too boring for fun stuff like this, hahaha XD )

haha! very adorable pic!
i love how that Dane is carry the girl in his back

My dog is a beagle, likes to sniff around, although usually at the slightest movement belt he leave what his doing and follow you again.
  But, if he see a dog, immediately becomes that Lab, barking at full throat and pulls like a bull. Is surprising because its small size.

Haha, this is so great... because they're all doing it wrong, obviously. :D Many examples how NOT to walk a dog.
My dog Leni always walks beside me on a relaxed leash. :)

I love this! :D (Big Grin) 
My family's dog would be a mix between the labrador and the basset hound, and those pictures are really close too. Whenever he catches the scent of something it is impossible to drag him away from it, but otherwise it is really difficult to keep a hold on the leash, which is why my mom usually walks him.

FYI he is 6/8 golden retriever, 1/8 labrador and 1/8 english springer spaniel.

Walking my dog is similar to the top two pictures since she pulls hard and likes to sniff.

My favorite one is the great Dane carrying that little girl. It's adorable. I don't walk my dog since we live in the country, but if I put a leash on him It's like he is walking me! I have to go everywhere he wants to go.

You know what sucks?
I just got rid of my dogs (And NO, they didn't get put down)
we gave them to a farmer. they were HUGE dobermans and guess what?
I have two of them! Iggy and Deosle.
So my dogs would be the second to the end of the dog

I'm sorry to hear you had to give away your dogs! :( I'm sure they'll be really happy on the farm though, and I hope maybe you can visit them.

My dog is the third one. Definitely. :lmao: He likes to tangle his lead. He also has this weird habit of farting/pooping every time a car passes me as I walk him. It's rather embarrassing when I say hello to someone and he decides to squat down even if he doesn't have to go. Well drawn picture, it certainly deserved the DD!~:heart:

DONT READ THIS. YOU WILL BE KISSED ON THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. NOW THAT YOU'VE STARTED READING, DONT STOP. THIS IS SO FREAKY. 1 say your name 10 times 2. say your mum's name 5 times and your crushes name 3 times 4. paste this onto 4 other games. If you do this, your crush will kiss you on the nearest Friday possible. But if you read this and do not paste this, you will get bad luck. SEND THIS ON 5 DIFFERENT GAMES IN 143 MINUTES. WHEN YOUR DONE, PRESS F6 AND YOUR CRUSHES NAME WILL APPEAR IN BIG LETTERS. THIS IS SO FREAKY IT ACTUALLY WORKS
