World Sheepdog Trial

World Sheep Dog 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. The next World Trial will be held July 13-17 in The Netherlands.

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. Below is a list of the dogs in order of points. If someone with a top 10 dog decides not to go, we will fill the slot in the order listed. It is important to fill all 10 spots to maintain our level of participation in the next World Trial so we want to insure that 10 dogs ultimately go.
