Sheep Dog Trial Demonstrations
A reliable dog is an essential part of a sheep farmer's life
This Demonstration tests both the speed and the skill of the handler and the dog.
It is run in an enclosed arena, measured 60 x 120 yds. The handler must complete without error, a prescribed course against the clock. This course consists of driving four sheep in a figure of 8 around two barrels, twice through a Maltese Cross and into a small pen, without penalties, in the fastest time.
