Hoku is the baby of our family and the official greeter for The Boathouse Studios. He is an Australian Shepherd that is fond of fetching dirty tennis balls, frisbees and loves absolutely anything involving children, food or running.

Hoku is freakishly smart and well behaved, but he is also calm and very loving. Hoku has been on hundreds of commercial shoots (by request only), and has charmed his way into more than a few international advertising campaigns along the way.

Hoku's unique talents include sleeping in uncomfortable looking (and borderline embarassing) positions that defy both gravity and our current understanding of canine anatomy.

Additionally, Hoku has mastered the art of convincing humans that he has never been fed, never been petted before, never had a stick thrown for him. He is a true master of these dark arts and though he is never pushy, he has used his wit, charm and his adorable little face to score hundreds of additional treats, hours of head rubs and days of thrown sticks/balls. He is hard to resist!
