Ausmate Australian Cobberdog Offers Tips For Communicating With Breeders

Inverell, New South Wales -

Ausmate Australian Cobberdogs, a registered breeder of Australian Cobberdogs in regional NSW, Australia, has recently shared an article about the benefits of raising and owning an Australian Cobberdog. According to Ausmate, the Australian Cobberdog is an excellent therapy or assistance dog, as they are gentle and very human-focused, with a strong intuition for the needs of their owner. The dogs are also very low shedding with little to no coat odour, genetically healthy animals, and not prone to barking. Australian Cobberdogs are also very trainable, and give good eye contact to humans they’re interacting with, showing their attentiveness to people.

The Australian Cobberdog is a breed in development, which means that dedicated breeders are working on creating predictability within the breed. One thing that sets Ausmate and the Australian Cobberdog apart from many other breeds is that the breeders creating the Australian Cobberdog have been extremely careful to use only genetically healthy animals for breeding, and have traced the pedigree of every animal used to create the Australian Cobberdog breed. Every Australian Cobberdog born is registered with the Master Dog Breeders and Associates (MDBA), which holds the global registry for the breed. Anyone who adopts an Australian Cobberdog can expect to be provided with a pedigree from the MDBA.

An Australian Cobberdog can be Brown, Cafe, Blonde, White, Red, Black, Gold, Particolour

In addition to noting the benefits of an Australian Cobberdog, Ausmate’s website also provides tips for individuals and families interested in bringing a puppy into their home. According to the breeder, many puppy buyers think they can go out shopping for a puppy they can bring home whenever they please. Rather than looking for a puppy, Ausmate suggests that potential puppy buyers instead look for a breeder who they trust and feel shares their top criteria for an “ideal” dog. Ausmate also notes that buyers should not expect puppies to arrive on a particular timeframe. Instead, buyers should expect to wait for a puppy from their breeder of choice. In the words of the breeder, “It’s VERY rare to wait less than a couple of months; four to six is normal. I’ve waited a year on a couple of occasions; no, even we breeders don’t walk through the field, able to pick puppies like tulips. We ALL have to wait, and we ALL have to get matched up by the puppies’ breeder.”

The website further recommends that interested puppy buyers introduce themselves thoroughly to prospective breeders. A good breeder wants to know that their puppies are going to good homes, whether its an Ausmate Australian Cobberdog or any other breed, so buyers should be prepared to communicate that they understand what sets a breeder apart and that they are ready to take on the commitment of a new puppy. The breeder even provides a sample email for making initial contact with a breeder, and suggestions on when to bring up price in a conversation. The breeder also emphasizes that not every person is a good fit for every breed, so people should not expect to get a yes from every breeder they contact. They also shouldn’t expect to choose their own puppy, according to Ausmate. Breeders understand their dogs, they know what each dog needs in a home, and they work hard to make sure every puppy they place goes somewhere they are happy and well cared for. This is why it is especially important to be thorough and honest when communicating with a breeder about needs and plans for a puppy, because the breeder will want to make sure each puppy goes to the best matched home.

Visitors to Ausmate’s website can find much more information about the Australian Cobberdog, as well as pictures and videos of many of the dogs bread by Ausmate. All of Ausmate’s puppies are raised with lots of cuddles and human contact, and are used to hearing lots of laughter and joy. The puppies were also raised around children, cats, turkeys and chooks, and are used to normal house noises, to help make sure every puppy is well behaved at home.

A1 Granny Flats Explains the Return on Investment and Benefits of Investing in a Granny Flat

Sydney, New South Wales -

A1 Granny Flats, a granny flat construction firm based in Sydney, NSW, Australia, wants to emphasize the potential benefits of investing in a granny flat. A granny flat is a self-contained housing unit that is built on the same block as a single-family dwelling and is often provided for use by an aging parent. Building a granny flat has been gaining in popularity across Australia since it can provide the ideal home of a loved one, and also offer additional accommodation for extended family and teenagers and not just for elderly parents. A granny flat can also be rented out, which is why the firm suggests that granny flats can provide a worthwhile investment in Sydney and surrounding areas.

In a case study presented on their website, two people decided to invest in the real estate market. They financed a 60 square feet, two-bedroom brick veneer granny flat using the firm’s in-house financing team for $120,000. The granny flat was completed in 19 weeks and they were able to immediately rent out the granny flat for $370 per week. Later on, they also decided to have the main dwelling renovated and to rent it out as well. They were able to rent out the main house for $590 per week, which meant they were receiving a total of $960 per week as rent for the main dwelling and the granny flat. The result was a revenue of $11,577.28 each year after getting financing for a total of $620,000.

They can build a variety of styles of accessory dwelling units, from studio apartments with just living space and a bathroom, for people who are able to share a kitchen with the main house on the property, to, at the entire other end of the spectrum, small three bedroom houses with a full kitchen and eating space.

Potential customers will appreciate knowing about this A1 Granny Flats review on Google.

A consultant from the company will provide a free inspection of the property to determine the best location for the unit, as well as the existence of connections to various utilities and access to the property. The company will provide a fixed price quotation based on all of the information they have available, including any structures or trees that may need to be removed and the details of the property.

While the tender offered to potential clients is very detailed, A1 Granny Flats still encourages clients to meet their design team at their display center so they can interact with the materials that will be used in their unit and discuss their project in depth with the team, to make sure the custom design is well suited to their needs. Once this has been done, it is time to get the necessary permits for building the new unit.

Saberr Quotes Lindsay Tighe, Better Leaders Ask Better Questions Author

Leadership educational company Empowered Conversations is excited to announce that their founder was recently mentioned in a blog post from Saberr, another leadership training company. This article discusses how companies and organizations can develop their next generation of leaders, in order to ensure businesses can keep going in the future. According to this article, the aging “baby boomer” generation currently accounts for a third of the workforce, with over half of them in leadership positions. When they retire, they’ll need to be replaced with fresh leadership, which means it’s important for companies to have younger emerging leaders ready to take their place.

The blog post from Saberr claims that one of the most effective ways to prepare people for future leadership is to give them leadership coaching. This can start by creating a coaching culture, where managers and other leaders are coaching their reports, rather than just telling them what to do. The blog post especially encourages providing regular feedback, and encouraging managers to have continuous performance discussions with their reports so any potential issues can be addressed immediately instead of becoming habits and only being mentioned at annual reviews, making things much harder to fix or change. The blog then suggests asking good questions, citing Empowered Conversations founder Lindsay Tighe as saying, “I have been teaching leadership Skills for 20 years and the skill most needed to create an empowered, engaged and motivated workforce is that of being a Better Questioner.” This is the idea behind Lindsay’s book, Better Leaders Ask Better Questions, and the services offered by her business, Empowered Conversations.

Lindsay Tighe says the skill most needed to be a better leader is asking better questions.

Empowered Conversations offers leadership and communications training designed to empower everyone they work with to thrive. Whether instructing parents, managers, or healthcare professionals, Empowered Conversations can help people ask better questions leading to better conversations that can help them and those around them feel respected, trusted, and valued, and establish an organization culture where people can realize their potential and be empowered to have a voice. Through a collection of workshops, books, online courses, executive coaching, and a calendar of events, the team at Empowered Conversations use their skills at asking better questions to help their clients find their innate wisdom, so they themselves can ask better questions and become more effective leaders.

In the Saberr article Leader in the Making: How to Develop the Next Generation of Leaders [2022], Lindsay’s advice is for managers and company leaders to learn to ask better questions, as a way of encouraging the next generation of leaders and training them to also be able to facilitate empowered conversations. Other tips offered by the article include enabling on-the-job training, because studies show that people who attend training courses are far more likely to retain information when they are able to put learning to use on the job immediately than if they get no chance to apply the information at all. Investing in team development is a great way to help team members form the right habits to become future leaders, and staying on top of team health, to keep teams functioning at top performance, can also help a management team find out what skills their teams and managers need to continue to develop.

Empowered Conversations can help potential leaders gain, build, and polish skills that could be useful to their future careers as leaders, as well as helping existing leaders and managers hone their skills for future success. Some of the skills that can help leaders be more successful include showing empathy, being influential, and being effective. Effective leaders are open to suggestions and to taking risks, and are willing to work collaboratively with their peers towards achieving shared goals, which goes a long way to reducing resistance to leadership. Finally, actively listening, having a growth mindset, and being inclusive, to not just foster diversity but make sure everyone on a team, regardless of their background, feels safe to share and do their best work, are also great skills for business leaders of today and the future.

Microplastics & Its Effects & How Tirtyl Is Playing A Role In Reducing Single-Use Plastics

Tirtyl, a popular Brisbane-based personal care & home products company, has set out to save the environment by limiting the usage of microplastics and single-use plastics. They have partnered with Plastics Bank to collect ocean-bound plastic bottles with every product they sell by contributing sales proceeds. By the end of 2022, the brand targets to collect the equivalent of over 5 million ocean-bound plastic bottles.

Microplastics, as their name suggests, are tiny plastic particles less than 5 millimetres in size. They range anywhere from about the diameter of a grain of rice to microscopic plastic beads. Yet, according to research, in the last few decades, not even in one hundred years, human usage has produced 8 billion tons of plastic, and only about ten per cent of that has been recycled.


Typically, microplastics are washed down the drain, slipping through water treatment plants to enter waterways, finally landing in the ocean beds. Marine biologists have experimented on Northern fulmars, a variety of seabirds that travels long distances in search of food and store oil from recent meals in their stomach to survive. They extracted this oil from their guts and found microplastics that were remnants of resins, flame retardants, and chemical stabilisers. Such materials are known to have alarming effects on the reproductive capacity of birds and marine life, posing a threat to the entire ecosystem and food chain.

Research findings from Yale University highlight two types of microplastics - primary and secondary. Primary microplastics are plastic microbeads often found as small spheres in personal care products like exfoliating face washes and sunscreens. On the other hand, secondary microplastics are relatively large plastic materials used in packaging or building materials that undergo wear and tear over time to become microplastics. For instance, plastic bags, food containers, packets, bottles, paints, adhesives, coatings, and even electronic products lead to microplastics. Surprisingly, even households contribute to the production of microplastics. For example, washing clothing made with synthetic fibres in washing machines aggravates the microplastics problem.

It is also essential to understand that when plastic particles disintegrate, they gain new physical and chemical properties. This increases the risk they pose with a toxic effect on the ecosystem. In addition, the larger the number of potentially affected species, the more likely the environment will be affected adversely.

Keeping in mind this bearish outlook, Tirtyl has innovated waste-free soaps, detergent sheets, cleaning products and a variety of sustainable products that will minimise the use and production of plastics in any form. Researchers in Germany have already warned that the impact of microplastics in soils, sediments and freshwater could have a disastrous long-term adverse effect on the ecosystems that exist there. Therefore, Tirtyl ensures the ocean-bound plastic collected is processed and up-cycled into new consumer goods in the private sector.

According to a recent study, almost 700,000 microscopic plastic fibres could be released into the environment during each washing machine cycle. In addition, tiny fibres of acrylic, spandex, nylon, and polyester are shed each time we wash our clothes polluting the environment. In 2021, FAO and UNEP launched the Global Assessment of Soil Pollution, which outlines the risks and impacts of soil pollution on human health, the environment, and not to forget food security.

All these problems can be avoided if nations adopt a sustainable way of life. This highlights the need to reinforce the use of eco-friendly, organic and local products that do not contribute to environmental pollution. As a company focused on bringing quality personal care and hygiene product to people’s homes, Tirtyl has constantly innovated in introducing product segments that are 100% plastic-free, vegan-friendly and cruelty-free.

The signature soap and handwash dispenser kits that suit any home style and d├ęcor ensure zero wastage every time. Products like the Tirtyl towels equivalent to 15 rolls of paper towels, further reducing the single-use footprint. These 100% plant-based towels, made from plant cellulose and cotton, do not contribute to microplastic production and help protect the environment.

Tirtyl has been actively involved in creating a sustainable way of doing business by envisaging the need to develop environment-friendly products. The Founders Lachlan and May believe that companies, policymakers and governments can do the right thing and be successful simultaneously. The company has collected 49 times the plastic produced across the entire supply chain, making it a 100% plastic-free business globally. In addition, Tirtyl are committed to continuing to donate proceeds from every sale to support social causes, with a heavy emphasis on ocean & marine-life conservation, and climate change.
