A rare opportunity to see how invaluable working Dogs are for our farmers as the country comes to the city for the inaugural Dog Lovers Sheepdog Speed Trials.
Australian Working Dog Rescue are presenting the inaugural The Weekly Times Sheepdog Speed Trials where purpose bred working Dogs will be placed in their element, safely moving real sheep through a course, just as they would on the farm.
With expert commentary, acclaimed judges, and the chance to get up close and personal, it’s a truly unique opportunity to view a part of Australian farming heritage at its absolute finest.
Learn about the years of training, how important genetics are, how puppies learn, the role of experienced dogs, how the working dog breeds differ, how some dogs have different skills to others, and watch as they work these sheep in quintessential Aussie style.
You may even get a chance to try and direct a dog if you are lucky!
