So good. Wonderful information about the training of these special security and also detection dogs. Great show, and added attraction of puppy cuddles as well. Do yourselves a favour - and support this endeavour as well.

This was one of the nicest entertainments we saw in Stanthorpe area. The pups run around free, the look of them - one ear up, one down, or leaning against the other. They show you how the adults work for security, there is a show every Sunday and it lasts around one hour.
