The Working Dog Centre strives for excellence in breeding and training. We breed and train working dogs, train handlers, supply dogs to clients, educate the public in the benefits of using dogs to work livestock, and use our working dog knowledge and expertise to assist industry and the media.
Ben Page’s Natural Method® works with the dog’s natural instinct, using ‘dog language’ to teach the dog. Ben does not use force or aggression and does not condone cruelty or believe in swearing or losing your temper whilst training your dog or working stock.
The Working Dog Centre has two registered studs:
Our dogs come from proven bloodlines with extensive pedigrees going back at least 10 generations, and are used on sheep, beef cattle, dairy cattle, goats, ducks, poultry and in sheepdog trials. Find out more about Buying A Page Dog.
