Keet'ha NTD - Australian Cattle Dog

Kind of a turd, kind of a sweety. Sturdy and reliable, Keet'ha is who you will often see at training classes as the demo dog. Born Dec 30 2013 she's a bit of an older gal but she's still got lots of spice left in her to tell off the rude puppies when they're messing about too much. 

Keet'ha has never worked cattle or sheep, only people ;) She's a bit afraid of cows in fact but she'll 100% tell Victoria where and when to walk.

Victoria DN-WTWI - Owner

Fearless and passionate, there's not much that could frighten Victoria (except maybe a spider).


The proud owner of Wild Tails she has been around critters of all sizes her whole life. but it wasn't until after getting her Bachelor of Design at ACAD she knew an office job just wouldn't cut it for her. Then she found her best friend Keetha. She knew her calling was to do something with animals, and to learn and teach. It started with working as a daycare attendant and her fascination with training only grew. Since then Victoria has expanded her knowledge base, continuing her training education and actively working to improve. As a member of the PPG, she has a wonderfully vast library of science-based, and current information.
