An informative, interesting 1 hour insight into the training and workings of this dog training facility. The narrative is clear and suitable for adults and children alike. Enjoyed it because it was something different. These are working dogs in training and not trick dogs so it doesn't always go as planned, which adds to the experience.

We had such a great time watching the dogs being trained and interacting with the puppies (Bondi was very cute). The owners are great to chat to and so passionate about raising and training these dogs. Would definitely recommend. Worth every cent.

The place is easily sign posted from the highway and it is just a few kilometers further 'down the road' to their property. Well worth a visit and great for kids also. We visited here last Wednesday and were greeted by pup Bondi. She was getting socialisation skills and we were happy to help her out. This place is a... More

Beautiful dogs and amazing watching what they can do. Lovely staff and wonderful seeing and hearing about the rescue dog programs as well. I also loved the puppy cuddles with beautiful Bondi :-)

We were lucky to stumble across this place and are very glad we paid them a visit. We got to meet one of the puppies before the show - she was playful and a bit naughty, but super cute! The show was educational and really interesting - they cater to all ages and I think it would be a great... More

Brilliant show! Very interesting and the dogs are just beautiful. I love the approach that these guys have to their training. It's just incredible. Meeting Summer at the end was awesome. Keep up the great work everyone! 😃

Well all I have to say is if I need a security dog I will know where to get one. There show was very educational and it showed us their wonderful care for rehabilitation of abused and dangerous dogs.

My wife has wanted to see this show for a long time but I was reluctant...stupid me. A fantastic show. Walked away impressed in so many ways. Entertaining and informative. The dog's are superb and seem to love showing what they can do, and the staff love their dogs. We will probably see the show again on our next visit!

Lawdogs is a must visit when visiting the Granite Belt. The show is factual, entertaining, interactive & enjoyable. My husband and I had a great time. Did I tell you about the puppies? Well they are so cute & you may join them occasionally in their environment. Do go and see this show, you won't be disappointed!
