# Draw A Dog In Python

Last updated July 3, 2023 by Jarvis Silva

In this tutorial I will show you how to draw dog in python, to draw dog we will use the turtle module which allows us to draw graphics in python.

## Python Code To Draw Dog

``````
import turtle as t
t.screensize(500, 500)
# 【 head outline 】
t.pensize(5)
t.home()
t.seth(0)
t.pd()  #pendown
t.color('black')
t.circle(20, 80)  # 0
t.circle(200, 30)  # 1
t.circle(30, 60)  # 2
t.circle(200, 29.5)  # 3
t.color('black')
t.circle(20, 60)  # 4
t.circle(-150, 22)  # 5
t.circle(-50, 10)  # 6
t.circle(50, 70)  # 7
#  determine the approximate position of the nose t.xcor and t. ycor the position of the tortoise at the beginning
x_nose = t.xcor()
y_nose = t.ycor()
t.circle(30, 62)  # 8
t.circle(200, 15)  # 9
# 【 nose 】
t.pu() #penup
t.goto(x_nose, y_nose + 25)
t.seth(90)
t.pd()
t.begin_fill()
t.circle(8)
t.end_fill()
# 【 eye 】
t.pu()
t.goto(x_nose + 48, y_nose + 55)
t.seth(90)
t.pd()
t.begin_fill()
t.circle(8)
t.end_fill()
# 【 ear 】
t.pu()
t.color('#444444')
t.goto(x_nose + 100, y_nose + 110)
t.seth(182)
t.pd()
t.circle(15, 45)
t.color('black')
t.circle(10, 15)
t.circle(90, 70)
t.circle(25, 110)
t.rt(4)
t.circle(90, 70)
t.circle(10, 15)
t.color('#444444')
t.circle(15, 45)
# 【 body 】
t.pu()
t.color('black')
t.goto(x_nose + 90, y_nose - 30)
t.seth(-130)
t.pd()
t.circle(250, 28)
t.circle(10, 140)
t.circle(-250, 25)
t.circle(-200, 25)
t.circle(-50, 85)
t.circle(8, 145)
t.circle(90, 45)
t.circle(550, 5)
# 【 tail 】
t.seth(0)
t.circle(60, 85)
t.circle(40, 65)
t.circle(40, 60)
t.lt(150)  #left
t.circle(-40, 90)
t.circle(-25, 100)
t.lt(5)
t.fd(20)
t.circle(10, 60)
# 【 back 】
t.rt(80)  #right
t.circle(200, 35)
# 【 collar 】
t.pensize(20)
t.color('#F03C3F')
t.lt(10)
t.circle(-200, 25)
# 【 love bell 】
t.pu()
t.fd(18)
t.lt(90)
t.fd(18)
t.pensize(6)
t.color('#FDAF17')
t.begin_fill()
t.lt(135)
t.fd(6)
t.right(180)  #  brush turn around
t.circle(6, -180)
t.backward(8)
t.right(90)
t.forward(6)
t.circle(-6, 180)
t.fd(15)
t.end_fill()
# 【 front calf 】
t.pensize(5)
t.pu()
t.color('black')
t.goto(x_nose + 100, y_nose - 125)
t.pd()
t.seth(-50)
t.fd(25)
t.circle(10, 150)
t.fd(25)
# 【 posterior calf 】
t.pensize(4)
t.pu()
t.goto(x_nose + 314, y_nose - 125)
t.pd()
t.seth(-95)
t.fd(25)
t.circle(-5, 150)
t.fd(2)
t.hideturtle()
t.done()
```
```

Above is the python code for drawing a dog, now let’s see how this program actually works in simple points:

• The turtle screen size is set to 500×500 pixels using `t.screensize(500, 500)`.
• The code defines various functions and configurations for the turtle graphics.
• The outline of the head, including the mouth, nose, eyes, and ears, is drawn using a combination of circles and lines.
• The nose is drawn separately by moving the turtle to the appropriate position and drawing a filled circle.
• The eyes are drawn by moving the turtle to the correct position and drawing filled circles.
• The ears are drawn using a combination of circles and lines, with different colors applied.
• The body of the dog is drawn by moving the turtle to the correct position and drawing a series of circles and lines.
• The tail is drawn by moving the turtle in a specific pattern.
• The back of the dog is drawn using circles and lines.
• A collar is drawn around the neck using a thicker pen and a specific pattern.
• A love bell is drawn by moving the turtle to the correct position and drawing a pattern with a filled shape.
• The front and posterior calves are drawn by moving the turtle to the correct positions and drawing lines and circles.
• Finally, the turtle screen is closed using `t.done()`.

Now you have the code to run it you need to do one last thing as I have said I have used the turtle library for this program, so you might need to install it if you get any errors like turtle module not found to install use below command

``````
pip install turtle
```
```

Now to run this program you need to have python installed on your computer, If you don’t have then follow this guide: Install and setup python on your computer or else use this online python compiler.

When you run the program it will open a new window and it will start drawing the dog and below is the finished drawing of a fog

As you can see, we successfully drew a dog using our python skills, I know it is not a perfect drawing of a dog but we will improve upon this program in the future.
