Swedish photographer and dog enthusiast Evelyn Edblad has trained her three Australian Kelpies to be extraordinarily still.
In a video uploaded to YouTube, Edblad filmed her three dogs standing motionless for some 30 seconds, before she gave the call for them to sprint off.
“I’ve taught Jackson, Cash, and X to stay still on command before I give them the signal that they are free to go,” Edblad wrote online. “They then freeze in expectation, knowing they’ll soon get to run around.”
It’s an impressive level of group discipline, even for keen-witted sheep-herding dogs.
