    It is so hard to shoot dogs when they are at the park running around like whackos. Any suggestions? CC on the pics. Thanks everyone.

    You could have upped the ISO that way you could have gotten even faster shutter speeds and froze action. It does look like there is some motion blur or maybe the focus was just off a bit.

    i think a great idea for a shot would be to go out to the park with one of your friends and have them throw a ball or frisbee for your dog.
    stand perpendicular, set a fairly high shutter speed (to catch his legs) and pan your camera for a sharp dog and blurred backround.

    I like the exposure, color, etc., but the crops look way off on them.

    I agree...the images themselves look nice a crisp with good color, contrast and sharpness, but the composition in each one needs work.

    In the first and third shots the cut off legs/paws really bother me.

    For the second shot it would have been nice if you got closer and filled the frame more. Same for the other two...get closer and frame in tighter. Too much space above the dog and try not to cut off the legs/paws unless you're really in tight for a portrait.
