Photo by @estherhorvath / Trude Hohle, a citizen of Longyearbyen, Svalbard, holds a puppy at a private dog yard outside the city. Because of wildlife protection, there are many rules in Svalbard. Dogs are not allowed to run free. They must stay in a dog yard outside of town and be on their leash when walking. Many locals have their own dogs that they use for dog sledding, and the dogs are wonderful company during the dark months of the polar night. Trude left her business life in Oslo behind and moved to Longyearbyen, following her dreams to work and live in one of the northernmost Arctic places on Earth. She spends much of her free time training and handling polar dogs.
