The 2017 Cobber Challenge

Congratulations to Tassie kelpie Flow and owner Bradley McDonald who managed to top the competition to be this year's Cobber champions.

The 2017 Cobber Challenge tested 12 of Australia's best working dogs in their natural environment. Dogs from each state were fitted with a GPS collar over a period of 3 weeks. The results spoke for themselves. Competing dogs regularly clocked over 50 km in a day. Australian working dogs are often the unsung heroes on Australian farms but the numbers we saw highlighted just what a vital member of the team they are. Cobber provided the fuel for these dogs, as it does for thousands of working dogs every day around the country.
