Fladeboe spoke to National Geographic and described how dogs are a joy to work with. “Yes, occasionally, they do work hard; however, dogs with border collie personalities like mine are more relaxed when they can do something. A border collie living in a big city can be more miserable than working at a farm.”

Andrew Fladeboe said that getting an animal pose was always fun. “It’s not something that the dog naturally does and isn’t something that owners instruct how to teach their pets.”

“Luckily, I’ve photographed working dogs lately, and they’re properly trained and know how to follow my instructions.”

It’s about patience, adjusting the shot quickly, and educating the dog to obey your commands. They view it as a test of their dog’s abilities and will to comply with orders.

“These owners are very affectionate and committed. Teaching a dog how to be a productive worker takes a long time. Most people believe that it’s the most important aspect of their lives. They serve as my role model. “I would like to be able to train and rear dogs; however, I’m too far away to own a pet.”
