What a ripper of a school this past weekend. We had people travel from Harden,Wombat,Ryde,Mulgoa,Geurie,Forbes,Bega,Nevertire,Copacabana and Yeoval. We had stockmen working mixed properties (cattle,sheep,crop). A roustabout and some city folk that are getting into working their dogs.
What a great bunch of people. All came ready to learn and asked a lot of questions. All dogs where in control and well behaved. Everyone was respectful of each other and encouraging to one another. They was some friendly banter between the Kelpie and Collie owners. All in good fun. We had some rain but that didn’t dampen the spirt.
Gary is such a patience trainer. His knowledge of not just trailing and training but also how stock behave and how they react to certain dogs is often incorporated into what he shows, which is invaluable to the lessons. This is the 2nd time that Gary has been kind enough to do a school for DCs Madra and we are very thankful that he’s happy to come. He was impressed with the changes that we have done to the facilities from the last school. We aim to where possible take on feedback that we get from people.
Now to the photos. Sorry everyone but this fellow was my favorite of the weekend. What a cracker pup. Andrews going to have a ball with this fellow.
