Dogs help WA farmers operate their machinery
WA is home to the best farmers in the country and we believe we have uncovered the secret to why they are so productive.
The answer is dogs boldly going out on a limb to help their humans operate farm machinery.
Dogs like Taser will make sure you are fit to operate equipment, including running through a full OHS checklist.
They keep a watchful eye while training you in the basics of tractor driving.
Once they are confident in your ability, dogs will turn their attention to the road ahead, making sure you plot the right course through the paddock.
Eventually doggo will be ready to teach you advanced skills, such as how to feed their cattle.
Or perhaps they will sit in the cab and teach you how to use the airseeder.
Once you have mastered those skills, it is time for dog to teach the next generation.
And take a well deserved nap in the most convenient location.
Driving tractors is not the only skill we can learn from our best mates. We are developing a full investigative series on this matter.
So far we have discovered dogs are great at finding ways to cool off.
