Living in Alaska means open spaces and snow. Unfortunately Naka and Tomo are not the best subjects for picturesque photography; neither wanted to look at the camera! So, I started training them on the word ‘watch.’ I hold the treat in my hand while they are already sitting. I love my hand in various directions and say ‘watch,’ and their eyes follow my hand. If they stand we start over again, they must remain sitting. This command only took a few days and we managed the picture in this post. Eventually I want to get them sitting far enough away to show more of the gorgeous scenery I see on our walks.
