Professional Camel Trainer
Russell Osborne


Trust Based Training is the gentle art of training a camel where both the camel and the trainer are connected in a two way relationship of trust, friendship and understanding.

CEO of Outback Australian Camels, Transcontinental Cameleer and Desert Explorer, Russell Osborne, has a goal of training as many cameleers as possible with the Trust Based Training Methods.

"It is the only method of camel training I know of whereby the relationship built between camel and handler and vica-versa is paramount. Discovering who your camel is and them discovering who you are is a gentle, loving, respectful and most of all, a trusting process. The long term rewards and outcomes are amazing!"

  • If you have recently purchased a camel and never had a camel before.
  • If you don't want your camel to learn long lasting bad habits.
  • If you want your camel to want to be with you, not fear you.
  • If you want your camel to be on a pathway towards training success.
  • If you would like to better manage your camel on your property.
  • If you would like to learn how to "work" your camel.
  • If you would like a loving and trusting relationship with your camel.

Camelman Dreaming. 
A must read for new owners of camels

Russell Osborne's story from the beginning of having a dream of being a camel owner to walking for two years the 6500 kms across Australia's deserts for a charity is a must read for owners of new camels.

Whether you've decided to own camels for your own property, have a desire to one day do a camel expedition of your own or even to begin to prepare yourself to enter into a commercial camel operation for yourself, the story of the preparation and operation of the Darwin to Melbourne Thank You Camel Expedition described in the book Camelman Dreaming provides inspiration and  insights into the very nature of camels and cameleering.

"Equal parts adventure story, ode to the beauty of the Outback, and social and environmental commentary, Camelman Dreaming documents the adversity, wonder, love, and sheer joy of life (and camels!) found in traversing the continent for a worthy cause. 
Inspirational and highly recommended reading. "

(Professor Tim Loreman, Concordia University College of Alberta, Canada.)
