Berenice Walters Still Acknowledged as One of the Greatest Dog Women in Australia

Robert Kaleski was for a long time considered the expert on the history of the Australian Cattle Dog. Many of his theories have been proven wrong and the first person to question his ideas was Berenice Walters.

In his book, Dogs that made Australia, David Hull states: And it would be a dog man, but one of Australia’s great dog
women who smelled a rat and finally created the impetus for the real story to be told.
