We went to the mid-week morning show, and while there were only 12 attendees, it was a great show. The love the trainers have for their animals is very impressive and ensuring. It is also great to hear that they are now receiving and training dogs who are about to be euthanised, and these animals are sincerely grateful for their... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Lawdogs Australia. We were greeted by a young puppy and were able to interact with her and her handlers. The actual show was well presented and gave a fascinating insight into the way the dogs are trained and the specific areas in which they work. Just as interesting was the information provided about the... More

We discovered this show when browsing through a tourist publication. The presenters were very informative and we loved the rescue dogs and being able to feed them during the show. The 16 week old puppy that was being socialised so we could pat her was a bonus.

The staff throughout were very helpful, informative and friendly upon visiting their complex. We brought the school age grandchildren who loved it too. Dogs beautifully cared for and their training standard very high from what we had explained and demonstrated by several dogs.

I had wanted to see this show for a while and finally made it!. Beautiful dogs, well trained but with minds of their own - cheeky traits that make you realise they are much loved animals as well as well trained and on show. The positive training message was strong and clear. And the 12 new puppies with an exhausted... More

There is not much opportunity to get to this attraction, so plan your trip to Stanthorpe carefully. Although I am sure arrangements could be made for groups. As in the movies, don't work with children or animals as they can be unpredictable, but these dogs are well on their way to becoming super obedient. You can see that much time,... More

An informative, interesting 1 hour insight into the training and workings of this dog training facility. The narrative is clear and suitable for adults and children alike. Enjoyed it because it was something different. These are working dogs in training and not trick dogs so it doesn't always go as planned, which adds to the experience.

We had such a great time watching the dogs being trained and interacting with the puppies (Bondi was very cute). The owners are great to chat to and so passionate about raising and training these dogs. Would definitely recommend. Worth every cent.
