A working dog is define as a dog that herds, droves, protects, tends or works stock on land used solely or primarily for primary production. Primary production means maintaining animals for the purpose of selling them or the product they produce (ie. Wool).
The majority of dog breeds that are included are:
- Australian Kelpies
- Australian Cattle Dogs
- Maremma Sheepdogs
- Border Collies
- Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dogs
- Pyrenean Mountain Dogs
We may need to investigate further if the breed being registered is different to the above and we may attend the property to view the dog ‘working’ the stock.
