If the name Seth Casteel rings a bell, that’s because he is well known for the viral photos of dogs underwater. Now he has dialed up the cute even more with Underwater Puppies, a series showing puppies swimming in the pool.
Seth worked with over 1,500 puppies, ranging from 6 weeks to 6 months old. Besides the goofy and adorable puppy faces, there are some serious messages. Many of the puppies are from shelters as Seth wanted to show people “how terrific these little guys are”. Pool safety is also close to Seth’s heart, “So many people forget that our swimming pools, as much fun as they are, they are a danger. And they will learn. I mean, a lot of these puppies I work with, all it took was just a few times, putting them in the water and teaching them where the exit is, and they figured it out.”
If you love these images of pure joy, Underwater Puppies is available as a book! Here’s a behind the scenes look at the photo shoot!
