Wow. You nailed the focus on your dogs face.

What AF focus mode did you use on the Z6? (maybe a dumb question, because I'm not familiar with mirrorless focus modes, but does the Z6 have a version of group focus mode (which favors the closest subject) ) ?

Thanks

I was using mostly Wide-S in those shots and found it works similar to Group in DSLR modes. But on an open field, with enough contrast, the new subject tracking works pretty solid as well. 
I know the Z6 is not considered the camera for action shooting, but I have had a lot of success with it and compared to the D750 it's better to me. I've also tried the D500 and while a great AF body, the OSPDAF in mirrorless is more important to me.
