Dogs might be important workers in herding reindeers, as I wrote in an earlier post. Never have I seen so many dogs attending as when I travelled with the migrating reindeers last week. Actually, one of them had to stay home, because my equipment took his place on the snowmobile. And he was not happy for that, his owner told me.
I have seen reindeer herding dogs doing their work. Doing exactly what they are told, with so few commands. Really impressive. This time it was not much dog work to do while I was there, but the dogs were ready.
There are more pictures of reindeer herding dogs in my web gallery. And here a link to a finish site that have a lot of interesting stories about these dogs.
