Working Dogs celebrates the contribution of the remarkable animals in our communities and on our farms. This attractive 200-page hardback has over 300 photographs featuring the dogs that are a familiar and enduring symbol Australian rural and outback life - kelpies, collies, heelers, and every crossbreed in between. We see the dogs at play, with their owners, riding tractors and utes, with their farmyard friends, and doing what they love to do best - rounding up the livestock. The work of Rural Press photographers and proud working dog owners from right around the nation, this collection reminds us of why Australian working dogs are so valued and loved by country and city folk alike.

I thought this book was great it had lots of lovely photos and people and their dogs, but I was wanting a bit more of a story about dogs and their owners, so there wasn't much to read, just a whole lot of photo's of dogs and their owners.
