Australian Yard Dog Champion 2017
Getitdun Working Dogs
Growing up in the country we always had dogs.
They worked but were not hard working dogs,
more family dogs that used to get a lot of exercise.
In my late teens when I started mustering sheep
and working cattle, I got my first dog. I realised
that all the dogs we had before wouldn’t have
lasted a day, let alone a lifetime doing the
demanding work that was expected of them.
That was when I got I got my first real working
dog, bred for the specific purpose of working
on the land.
I got into trials about 20 years ago. A group from
the farm I was working on near Yass invited me
along to a local event and that was it, I was hooked.
For nearly two decades I have travelled across the
country competing at local and state events,
competing with dogs I initially got from other
breeders, and later with ones I had bred and
trained myself. This passion resulted in me and
‘Getitdun Davey’ winning the Australian Yard Dog
Championship 2017 in Bendigo.
As a breeder, trialler and owner of working dogs,
I know how important nutrition is for working
dogs. Across the years I have tried lots of different
food, but nothing compares with the performance
I am getting from CopRice Working Dog. ‘Davey’
is thriving on his senior dog food. He’s moving
better, keeping active and has less downtime.
He’s got a lot of years left in him so it’s important
I look after him.
