Each of our dogs is worth at least 3 men particularly when mustering our 76000 acres at Ruined Castle. With this in mind, our dogs are not only dearly loved but also highly valued. They live the life of typical working dogs with not too many creature comforts but are fed well, routinely wormed and vaccinated, exercised daily and given tons of affection amongst the discipline of the training regime. We have up to 30 dogs at any one time including a couple of main breeding bitches and regular, proven sires.We have a litter of pups on the ground most of the time with the aim of keeping at least 1 from each litter for ourselves and selling the rest to new homes. The breeding bitches comes from a proven line of dogs which the family have been working with for generations and the sires are all hard biting, lead dogs bred with no bark.
Our aim is to breed dogs with the qualities we seek ourselves: good travellers, hard biting, loyal, lead dogs with no bark. We have high expectations so there are many which don’t make the grade. They are sold on not as working dogs but rather as pets and I am proud to say (much to my husbands dismay!) that we have many of our breed running around the rural towns of QLD, both Brisbane and Sydney Cities…and even one in the UK! Let us introduce you to our working dog team:
