About
Public shows now permanently CLOSED. Kindly resist the urge to leave a bad review because you didn't look up trading hours first. Australian first working dog kennel open to the public for 1 hour sit down shows of law enforcement dog demonstrations and training. Visitors see training and demonstrations from protection, detection and agility dogs in an intimate experience under cover, seated behind a safety fence. There are often chances to be involved with puppy patting or helping hide training packages for the detection dogs to find. Lawdogs Australia also manages onsite the Truffle Discovery Centre Stanthorpe which includes guided tours of the Truffiere, truffle detection dog training area, truffle dog hunts, interactive gallery and tastings of truffle products. The gift shop and gallery is a foodies paradise including locally made truffle infused oils, honeys, salts, mustards and sauces as well local, regional and globally sourced artisan food products. Tastings are complimentary.

Absolutely loved the show when we were here 4 years ago and absolutely loved it again this visit. It was great meeting the new puppy recruits. Lawdogs is a most do when you visit Stanthorpe.

Dogs are the stars of the show!
Jul. 2020
Ok.. the dogs are the stars at this place. Rightly so. They will show you the various dogs they have at different stages of their training, so if things don't go according to the description of the presenter, don't worry. Make sure you book. They are trying to stick to their covid plan, so be mindful and respectful of this. On arrival you'll be given a sticker for the show then again due to the social distancing rules, you'll be shown to your seat when your name is called up.
A bit of feedback... and making it clear this is NOT A COMPLAINT. There are two attractions at this place, the dogs and the truffle discovery centre. We were booked for the 11a.m dog show. But they advertise as open from 10, so we got there at 10 wanting to know a little more about truffles. They have tasting of the truffles, but when we got there at 10, things seemed a little haphazard. They were waiting for someone who would give the tastings.. but no one turned up. More customers turned up and it became too crowded in the little shop so we stepped out due to the amount of bodies and social distancing rules. Maybe moving it outside under the shade cloth, as there is more room to accommodate more people? So we missed out on tasting, which is no problem. We still bought our oil and were more than happy to support this local business. This is a great attraction for all ages, give it a go. $25 for adults and $5 for children make it a reasonable choice for things to do in Stanthorpe. Sorry, no photos. I was more interested in watching what the dogs were doing.

Very interesting show and associated Truffle Discovery Centre
Feb. 2020
I had always wondered about truffles, and we found out everything we needed to know here. Lots of samples of truffle infused products - oils, dressings, mustards etc, as well as a variety of different honey and other items. The dog show was very interesting, showcasing how dogs are trained for roles in security and law enforcement settings.

We visited on our own as we wanted to see the truffle farm (on same property), but then were pleasantly surprised to meet this friendly crew.

Very informative talk re the truffles and then enjoyed the welcoming country hospitality in the shop chatting to owners and even got to meet one of the local cuties.

Great produce truffle products are delicious - spent up big and will visit again next time we are in Stanthorpe to hopefully have time to watch the law dogs show.

Had a great experience at the Lawdogs with both the truffle hunt and the dogs show. Really know how to share their knowledge of both with visitors and excellent service for all the staff. Very passionate about their involvement with the dogs and the treatment of rescue dogs.

Outstanding
Nov. 2019
I don’t know much about dog training but when I saw the LawDogs website it looked to be worth a visit. We were not disappointed. It was interesting, entertaining and very informative. Sadly we were the only two people there so they cannot have made much money with a 1-hour private show for just the two of us. Of course, it was great for us having a very personal experience.

If you are in the area, go to the LawDogs show. You will not be disappointed.

Brilliant Show
Sep. 2019 • Couples
Definitely worth a visit if you like dogs. These people are amazing & the dogs learn their trade through, love, games, fun & happiness. They also rescue dogs that are facing a death sentence. The dogs are rehabilitated, trained & given a new opportunity to have a happy life.
I would highly recommend the show & will visit again next time we are in Stanthorpe.
The shop that sells truffles & much more is also fantastic.
Lovely helpful people.
This to me was a 5 plus star attraction.
