It is important to choose an instructor who understands and respects upright, loose-eyed breeds. Those listed below give clinics and/or provide private instruction that has proven useful to some Australian Shepherd owners. If they have a Working Aussie Source Breeder ad, clicking on the kennel name link will take you to that page, with all their contact info. Inclusion on the below list is not a recommendation by Working Aussie Source, and non-inclusion is not a criticism. Scroll down to submit yourself for the listing. We do not add trainers who do not request it themselves.
