Outdoor Arena


Outdoors - ground level access


10:30am – 4pm daily

The country comes to the city when talented, hard-working Dogs hit town for the 2021 Dog Lovers Show!

Some Dogs are born to work – it’s in their DNA! At the 2021 Dog Lovers Show learn how important genetics are, how puppies are trained, and the roles of experienced Dogs.

Visitors will discover, in person, the intricacies of working Dogs and will be astounded by the results of years of training. They will find out how working Dog breeds differ in their skill sets and how they work the sheep in their quintessential Aussie style.

The Outdoor Area will amaze visitors with talented working dogs as they perform in the Sheepdog Speed Trials, Extreme High Jump Showcase and Dog Sled / Weight Pull Trials.

Australian Working Dog Rescue Inc (AWDRI) and Howling Husky Sled Dog Tours present the Outdoor Arena program where purpose-bred working Dogs will be placed ‘in their element’ – safely moving real sheep through a course and pulling sleds, just as they would do on the farm and in the snow!

The well-known face of AWDRI, Carey Edwards, will ignite the Outdoor Arena with expert commentary and acclaimed judging, giving visitors a chance to get up close and paw-sonal.
