This year the yard dog trial at Bendigo will attract the very best competition working dogs to the Victorian Yard Dog Championships, there are competitors from four states vying for this prestigious title and the right to represent Victoria at the Australian Championships in Tasmania in 2022.
There will be two courses operating each day, set up to showcase these working dogs ability to both gently move and at times use force to guide the sheep around a set course within a set time frame.
Competitors and their dogs are carefully watched by two experienced judges and points are deducted for various misdemeanours that may occur.
The State 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.
