Melanie is a dog trainer, but cannot separate her dog training job from her personal life with her boyfriend.
Written & directed by Maria Fe Picar
Cast: Melanie Sutrathada, Stephen Chun
This film was originally produced for the "Three Minute Picture Show" and took third place and also took first place in the "Ocean Avenue Film Festival" and has been shown at many community and cultural events. Melanie, the star of On Command had to learn to train my dogs Bosco and Nelly in one afternoon and did a great job! The "clicker" seen in the film was a way of calling the "dogs" we got the idea when my husband tried to call me with the clicker.
