Conservation & Detection Dog Services
Training and handling detection dogs has become the primary focus of the Tate business since 2015. On average our dogs and handlers are in the field 50% of the year. We are currently engaged to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (formerly OEH NSW) on 3 different major projects detecting Koalas, Invasive plants and Feral animals.
Our dogs have recently been used in two successful, large scale pest eradication programs and have several smaller ongoing projects finding threatened and invasive species.
We have teams ready to go on the following targets: Koalas, Quolls, Foxes, Cats, Rabbits, Hares, Cane Toads, Owls, Hawkweed, Alligator Weed, Rats (invasive and native), Mice and Truffles.
Adding additional targets to experienced dogs and handlers can usually be achieved within a matter of weeks.
We can also provide the following relevant services:

Ari has also appeared in advertisements for the NSW Blind Dog Association, Subaru, Black Hawk Pet Care (alongside the whole Tate Family) and Bankwest.
Ryan was the animal expert and presenter on a special 2 part Catalyst series on ‘Making Dogs Happy’ for the ABC and both Ryan and Jen over the past years have shared their knowledge of animals on a variety of tv shows; Getaway, Sydney Weekender, The Morning Show and other educational programs for kids. Ryan has also been apart of 2UE‘s live talk back radio show with animal behaviourist Dr Jo Righetti.
