The show will also feature the Hawksbury Working Kelpie Stud’s puppies as well ass its full-grown dogs.
“They’ll be showing how working dogs are trained, right from the puppy stage,” Mrs Bush said.
“They’’ll be lots of puppies available to pat around the grounds because we also have the got the animal nursery very nearby.
“We have got a new free family fun area – we haven’t done that before – with free facepainting and chairs for families to relax and have lunch in the shade close the the children’s section.”
