This one is hands down my favorite. His back right leg could use minor tweaking though, IMO. Looks great otherwise!

Thanks, guys! May tweak that leg a little however client chose V.3. I felt this was the strongest as well. Thanks again!

I might be a little persuaded to to like this because I grew up with Dobermans in my home. But this is a nice logo, agree with the other post on the leg tweak.

Thanks! I just tweaked the back leg a bit but can't seem to replace the image with a new one, did David do away with that option, can we not update this image with a new one?

There we go, got it, sorry, either I had a brain fart or it's been too long since I had done that! Anyhow, I think it looks much more natural now. The back leg is basically the identical to the front back leg and you just catch that corner of the roof to compete the house form. How the hell did I not see this before? Yikes. Thanks everyone!

Actually I think fore legs look unnatural now. They should be slanted forward slightly to match the pose implied by the hind legs.

I don't know, guys. The front part of the dog looks weird. Either it's the stance (on many photos at that link the fore legs are not straight) or the legs are too short, or the body is a bit too low .. something's off. Try covering the right part of the drawing, hopefully you will see what I mean.

Yeah, good point regarding the roof. That would take care of proportions. But the straight legs are different, what is missing in the logo is a leash. That's what keeps those legs vertical in the photo. Note how it cuts into the dog's neck, there's a lot of strain involved.

He he he, you guys. Splitting hairs! :) I tweaked it a bit more, raised the roof just a bit more to give the front leg a bit more height. I'm pretty good with this. :) Thanks for the help!

Hot stuff! I think I would personally make the dog the same color as the letters, but that's just me. Thumbs up!

This is one of my favorite logos I have seen on this site.**Why is the dog facing to the left rather than the right and what font are you using in this logo?

Bernd Apr. 12 '11

Oh that's really really nice ... but ... what's that between his legs ... ??
