livelihood, my hobby, my passion. If given a little thought, a

Fund was started in 1992 to provide stock dog clinics and seminars to
farmers, ranchers, and city herding enthusiasts to increase their
understanding and ability to use their dogs with livestock safely,
humanely, and effectively. The proceeds from these clinics are used

Family involvement is stressed in these clinics by inviting both the
Australian Clinician and his family.
