Farm Dog Trial

Nearly all UK farm dog trials are based upon ISDS standards, which I know some people find hard to relate to farm work. So we have decided to run a Farm Trial. The course will be smaller and set differently, the emphaise on for example, moving sheep through a handling system, loading a trailer and shedding. The dogs will need to control more sheep around the course. Unlike a traditional trial where the handler remains at the post, the handler will be expected to work with the dog.  Handlers will be competing from the UK and other parts of Europe.
