Hanrob’s International Dog Academy Gives Pound Dogs a Second Chance 6.12.12

Hanrob’s International Dog Academy gives pound dogs a second chance to help sniff out flystrike-resistant sheep. Riely and Gibbs from the Animal Welfare League (AWL) were short-listed for the trial conducted by the Australian Wool Innovation. The trial was highly successful in proving our four-legged friends can detect odour that either attracts or repels flies from sheep. It is estimated that around 3 million sheep a year die as a result of flystrike in Australian (Wardhaugh and Morton, 1990). Many more are affected by non-fatal strikes.

Hanrob’s International Dog Academy is very pleased to be involved in such a worthy research project which will undoubtedly assist in the future welfare of our Australian sheep. For more information and to see our super dogs Riely and Gibbs in action click the below link. http://www.theland.com.au/news/nationalrural/livestock/sheep/sniffing-out-flystrike/2637159.aspx
