I did one dog show for about 2 hours. Was not as easy as I had hoped.

Anybody ever get any shots with the handler and the dog facing the camera while they are going around the ring? I suspect not many. The handler is invariably looking at the dog the entire time they are strutting around the ring.

Anyway, I'm tossing in another vote for the 70-200f/2.8L. Focus is quick enough and accurate.  I did the show I attended with a 135f/2. It worked, but I think I'd rather use a fast zoom with more range in both directions.
