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.
