2019 is a new year. Make it the best year you can for you and your dog.
Be responsible, be considerate of your neighbours and all others.
Love your dog, but have him or her do as you tell them when you tell them.
Make him a total part of your family.
JAPANESE STUDENTS WILL BE WITH US AGAIN THIS YEAR 2018. this is the 19th year they have attended Bonnies for training. ITS ALWAYS GREAT TO HAVE THEM AND TO BE ABLE TO ASSIST THE COLLEGES WITH THEIR DOG TRAINING STUDENTS.
The 2019 year took off with a tremendous bang. People are obviously realizing how important it is to have a well trained dog in hand. Let's hope 2019 is good for all.
Congratulations to all those who have taken on their responsibility so well.
Please make sure you carry water with you for the dog. Remember water in different places not only taste differently, but can literally make your dog feel ill. ALWAYS CARRY WATER FOR YOUR DOG.
TRY TO KEEP THE WATER IN ANYTHING BUT A PLASTIC BOTTLE. It has been researched that water left in a car in a plastic bootle can become contaminated.
Toads are at plague proporions at the moment. Be aware they will hurt your dog if you allow them to lick or handle the toad in any manner. Keep them away from the Toads.
Hope this all helps.

PRESENTATION TO THE PENINSULAR ANIMAL AID SHELTER
We keep this up here as it is good for all people to read. I realize it happened many years ago now, but I think it is so important, I keep it up here.
On Friday 29th October, 2010 a Plaque was presented to the Shelter by Bonnies and the Shepherd Demo Squad.
- This presentation was to honour the dog "HERBIE" who together with his handler lost their lives in Afghanistan early this year.
- The Service was very well attended by army personel, Councillor for the Canine Control Council, Councillor of the Moreton Bay Regional Council, 2 of the Army Dog Squad who have only been back from Afghanistan for 1 week, a gentleman who was a dog handler in Malaya many years ago,, the President of the A.D.F. (Aust. Defence Force) Tracking & War Dogs Association, President of the Shelter and members of Bonnies and Shepherd Demo Team, and volunteers from the Shelter.
These dogs which are well trained by the Army do a fabulous job, often saving the lives of all who move with them. Not enough recognisition is given to them by us the general public. The wonderful show of Army who attended this small memorium presentation shows just how much these wonderful 4 legged soldiers mean to their 2 legged compatriots.
Rest well 'HERBIE' You will be missed. I keep this information in here even though it is now 2018. I believe it is important enough to keep on view. . This is to remain on view to keep us aware of just what these Army Dogs do for us. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers please.
We keep this story in here as it an unending one. Many dogs assisted in Afghanistan and other war zones.
We try to keep their memories alive and all those who handled them.
In 2018 a Memorial was set up at Durack at Dogs Queensland Grounds for all those dogs who worked with their human companions in war torn areas. It is a visual reminder of all these dogs have achieved. WELL DONE CANINES.
Phone 33002959 or 0417631246 to book in for classes. Book early as we fill quickly.
