Working Dogs is a stunning photographic documentary of the Australian working dog by award-winning photographer Andrew Chapman in partnership with photo journalist Melanie Faith Dove.
Ranging across the country - from mustering sheep in Tasmania’s lush pasture to the stockyards of the Western Australian wheatbelt and onto Victoria’s High Country - this magnificent book celebrates the hard-working champions of the farm and outback.
See the Smithfield, the Koolie, the Heeler, the Kelpie and the Collie at work, at play, as puppies, and in training , as seen through the eyes of two of Australia’s most brilliant photographers.

I thought the book might have more information on training my working dog, but has a little on behaviour and some on particulare chactaristics. Nice book though.
Great book showcasing working dogs in Australia.
Such a wonderful gift for dog lovers and anyone who is interested in animals.
Beautifully photographed with gorgeous stories accompanying them.
Very highly recommended!!
