Learning in the Shadow of Luitpold

A one-on-one doggie obedience course takes place under the obelisk in Luitpold park in Northern Schwabing. The park is a peaceful setting, especially on sunny mornings like this one. As for the dogs around Munich, they behave exactly as you would expect – quite orderly and obedient like this one. The 17-meter high obelisk was built in memory of Prince Regent Luitpold, who reigned over Bavaria from 1886 til his death. During this time Luitpold is credited as bringing Bavaria to its golden age, even though it’s usually King Ludwig II who is recognized today for his lavish castles across the region.
