The church and this statue are incredibly popular! Busloads of people! My husband went here 20 years ago and there was no one then. Definitely worth a stop but be prepared for the crowds.

This statue is for the first sheepdog which helped the first settler to graze sheep. It is very easy to find since it is right in front of the car park.

Even though our main reason to Lake Tekapo was to visit the amazing Church of the Good Shepherd, seeing this Sheep Dog Statue was a bonus. These dogs are such an asset.

It's just another statue. It is good that it is located close to the Church of the Good Shepherd so visitors to the church can also visit it. Otherwise, it wouldn't really draw that much tourists. The statue is a tribute to all working dogs...More

Nice to see a lovely statue of a dog. Great to see that people appreciate their working dogs. With a lovely view of the lake.

Situated on a slight hill along the lake and near the hutch of the Good Shepherd the state is easy to locate. For those who appreciate the work that dogs do, this is a great memorial.

Great little statue just near the church. You need to be quick to get a photo as non stop tourists sitting and posing for photos.
