The country comes to the city when talented, hard-working Dogs hit town for the 2020 Dog Lovers Show!

Some Dogs are born to work – it’s in their DNA! At the 2020 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 and Extreme High Jump Competitions.

Australian Working Dog Rescue Inc (AWDRI) again presents the Outdoor Arena program where purpose-bred working Dogs will be placed ‘in their element’ – safely moving real sheep through a course, just as they would do on the farm.

2020 will again see the inclusion of the popular Extreme High Jump Competition, where working Dogs will leap to break new World Records.

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.
