Here are a few shots form three years ago with 40D and 70-200 f/2.8L IS. Not the greatest and I would like to think I might do a bit better with 60D which I have together with additional practise. One of the difficult things is getting and keeping focus on a the moving target when you want both the dog and the handler in focus and at the same time keeping them both in frame. You need to position yourself so that the dog and handler are in the same plane of focus but at f2.8 your DOF is not large.
