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

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! ;)

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.
