Witch, Pip and Tubs love to lick, shake hands and 'speak' on command. With one whistle they snap to attention ready to show you their different talents.

~ Amazing views and photo opportunities
~ Step inside a working woolshed
~ Meet our dogs and pat them if you wish
~ Learn about the dogs, their different roles and jobs on the farm
~ Learn how they respond to different commands
~ Pat the dogs and sheep, even try out a dog whistle
~ Watch the dogs herd sheep into the woolshed then move them through the yards
~ Enjoy a cup of tea and some biscuits

An authentic experience with real working dogs. Depending on the time of year you can see a sheep being shorn and perhaps meet our puppies in training.
