Photographer Angela Pham produces campaigns for major brands — when she isn’t in front of the camera as a face of Glossier or growing her Instagram following as a burgeoning style icon. Somehow she’s found the time to train her Japanese Spitz, Turtle, to master a dozen tricks — from ringing a bell to counting to four to walking with a limp — which she describes in her earlier article for The Wildest. Impressive, right?! Lucky for us, Pham is sharing some of her genius training secrets by recommending interactive toys designed to engage dogs mentally and physically. Below, her selection of the best gifts for the dog prodigy in your life.
