Now here's a view of their pet that every dog lover knows: their happy face as they run towards you at top speed.
It turns out, if you capture them at just the right moment, your dog makes some pretty hilarious faces when they run to greet you. It's a special mix of happiness, excitement and surprise that you can't find anywhere else, and Nick Ridley knows just how to capture it.
The animal photographer from England has been snapping pictures of dogs for over 30 years, and he breaks out all his tricks - including a super fast camera - to get these amazing shots.
Sometimes, Ridley even has the dogs run through water, so he can get an extra special shot.
