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.
