Advanced Trial Craft – South Western Zone – “The Secret to Winning”: A day with Joe Spicer and Gary Sharrock

This will be a solid day of advanced trial craft led by Australia’s premier trialler, Joe Spicer and Gary Sharrock, who has won numerous major trials and represented Victoria.

It will target the finer points of negotiating a course and handling your dog during its run.

The day will begin with breakfast at 7am, followed by practical presentations from Joe and Gary. Although there will be a significant component of “teaching” during the day, there will a Maiden/Novice trial in the afternoon for dogs capable of completing a novice course. The trial will be limited to 2 dogs per handler.


Breakfast and lunch are included in the package, which will raise funds for the South West trailer.

Whilst it is envisaged participants may have been trialling for at least a season, new competitors are welcome to attend.

Free camping Saturday evening is available.
