Dogmatic are a team of multi-talented working Border collies whose high energy show is appreciated by people of all ages.
We are able to perform at both indoor and outdoor venues and for various time frames. The usual performance time for our show is between 25-30 minutes.
We can perform on most surfaces. Our ideal is on grass with an area approx 25 x 25 metres, however we can perform indoors if required and in a much smaller area as well.
We have our own professional PA system.
Please visit our News page for information on some of our previous performances.
I have been working with dogs since I was 2 1/2 years old, when I took over Dad's puppy that he brought home.
When I was 4, I saw Wonder Dogs on TV and decided that I'd love to teach my dog to do some cool stuff like that.
I now have a team of 10 dogs, who all have a large range of tricks. I compete with most of them in agility and also in canine freestyle, flygility and occasionally sheep dog trials.
I enjoy working with my dogs and teaching them things. You only get out what you put in, and if you want the results, there's a lot of hard work, patience and time required to get there in the end! The dogs are all trained using positive reinforcement techniques.
