Encourage Trial and Training Day – Gippsland Zone
This is not about your dog handling skills, this is all about how we all give points back to the judge due to incorrect placement, not listening,  moving etc etc
We plan to train in the morning and then have a bit of a mock trial in the afternoon where you will be shown how and where you are throwing away points, points that could make the difference between winning and not placing.
It doesn’t matter at what level you are at whether it be encourage, maiden or novice you are welcome to attend.
It will be $150 for the day which will include morning tea and lunch and Travis’ unlimited knowledge and tricks of the trade.
Saturday 9th July from 8.30 to 4.30.
Happy trailing.

Sheep and Wool Show – Bendigo Entry Form 2022

O’Sullivans Transport Central Victorian Yard Dog Championships

This year the yard dog trial at Bendigo will attract the very best competition working dogs to the Central Victorian Yard Dog Championships. There is a very strong field of Victorian and interstate competitors vying for this prestigious title.

There will be two courses operating each day, set up to showcase the working dogs ability to both gently move and at times use clever force to guide the sheep around the course within a set time frame.

Competitors and their dogs are carefully watched the experienced judges and points are deducted for various misdemeanours that may occur.

The Championship judge is Rob Hart from Ballarat, who is a past winner of this event.

The Title is decided over three rounds where scores are added to determine the winner.

Situated on the main arena near the ram shed, come and enjoy the age old skills of stockmen and women with their working dogs.

Many thanks to our generous sponsors; O’Sullivans Transport, CopRice, Shearwell Australia, Rural Bank, Peter Linehan – Nutrien Ag Solutions Kilmore, Peter McRoberts Machinery, Tilburn Engineering, Oringi and Combi Clamp.
