Digger was bred by JMD working dogs and he’s been with me since he was 8 weeks old. He loves his paddock work, but he still gets the job done in the yards. He’s very loyal and very much a one-person dog. Digger is a reasonably quick dog and he works hard over our hilly and often steep terrain. But, Digger lives up to his name – he loves to dig holes!

I work on a sheep property near Tumbarumba running approximately 20,000 merinos over four different farms. My main role is stock handling and processing and I’ve been doing this work for about 3 years. I’m still a beginner with working dogs, so I regularly attend training schools and I’m an active member of the Tumbarumba Yard Dog club. I hope that others in the industry who are at a similar stage follow our journey and feel motivated to enter next year. Digger was the first dog I trained so he is different from the rest of my team. I’m keen to see how much he does for me and how he compares to dogs in other states and on different sorts of jobs and terrain.
