Muttley Crew

Farmer Dave

This spectacular show is filled with fun and cuteness while children learn about acting safely around all kinds of dogs.

Farmer Dave and his Crew give students an exciting educational experience where they learn safety around dogs both known and unknown as well as interactive learning outcomes of communication team building and empathy. Children often finish the engaging experience exhausted but loving every moment.

Get ready to have your heart melted with the Muttley Crew’s gang of wonderful dogs, specially trained for even the most nervous children.

“Thanks again for coming in and bringing your wonderful show to our children. The show was engaging and the children thoroughly enjoyed it. The jackaroos you had with you I understand have a backstory and wanted to pass on that they were great and respectful to the animals and children. I respect the time you put into supporting a wider community of those who may need some guidance in life. I thought both Joseph and Kie were happy and positively engaged. I have passed on to our vacation team that the show was a great success and recommend to other services”. Marley,  Primary OSHCare Haberfield

Farmer Dave was fantastic this morning. The children had a wonderful time, it was fun and educational. Special mention for Brady, one of the RuffTRACK boys who was great with a lot of the younger children providing lots of encouragement and motivation during activities.

I wanted to give you a run-down on our experience with Farmer Dave, and would really love you to pass it on to him and his team.I cannot begin to explain how valuable our program with Farmer Dave was for our service in term 2. In a nutshell, it was unorthodox, hilarious, engaging, fun, crazy, messy and charming. The program that was put together was thoughtful and catered to our group beautifully. Farmer Dave, Michael, Casey and their helpers were always well-prepared and gave our very culturally diverse group a real taste of Aussie culture and life on the land. Our children were always excited when they realised it was 'Farmer-Dave Day', and many would go home talking to their parents about what they had experienced. Farmer Dave gave our program (which can sometimes get a little stuffy), a huge reality injection and made not only the children, but our educators find a real sense of what is actually important in our world. It gave us all a great sense of connection to a simpler and wholesome way of life, which in such a digital age is so vital.For me personally, I found that the program reminded me of the fun I used to have when I was young. I saw it instil within our children a real sense of freedom and I couldn't have been more pleased. We were very sad to say goodbye to Dave and his team at the end of last term, and really want to thank him SO much for taking the time to deliver such a unique and terrifically Australian program. If Dave is agreeable, we would LOVE to have him come back when he is free! Thanks again for all your help with our program. Chat soon.
