World Sheepdog Trial

World Sheepdog Trial

Congratulations to our World Trial Team.  They made a great showing.  Derek and Nell, as well as Bev and Joe, made it into the semi-final round and Derek/Nell were one place shy of the Finals!!  Great job team!

The World Sheep Dog Trial is held once every three years. Handlers from countries around the world come together to compete for the title of World Champion. 

On October 12, 2016, the Board of Directors voted to invite the top 10 pointed dogs from the handlers who submitted a statement of interest for the 2017 World Trial, with a 2 dog limit per handler.

The USBCHA has formed a World Trial Committee that will review qualifying criteria for the 2020 World Trial Team.  A list of committee members will be posted here soon and you are welcome to contact them with your thoughts.


Congratulations again to the 2017 World Team Participants:
