Balto will be practicing several tricks, so now we have an early start. And then I guess I’ll have to try to train more too, Goksøyr laughs warily.

Fun evening: Inside the Party Play room, dogs can say hello and leave for a bit, while the trainer is inside the room. “Having two Dalmatians here is almost unbelievable, a breed so rare in Norway,” says Stine Bertin Ingebritsvold, who works at the evening’s event.
