Experiencing a dog training problem?

From beginners to experienced handlers, puppies to old dogs, farmers to city slickers, our Working Dog School caters for all working dogs. We use a hands on approach starting with you and your dog on sheep and back that up with white board instruction. Working in small groups understanding and developing the instincts of your dog and how to work with it, not against it.

We also do Private Lessons where we can help you with your specific needs; working stock related and/or general obedience and behavioural issues.
