Sheep Dog Trials and Training
Sheep Dog Trials
Daily show at 1.30pm*
Watch one man and his dog and the challenge of a flock of unpredictable sheep at the daily sheep dog trials at the BIG Sheep.
Learn how we train our border collie dogs and see how well they respond to command from the shepherds and manoeuvre the sheep through different gateways and into holding pens.
In competitions, there is a time limit allowed for the dogs to perform a number of tasks and then the judges mark the dogs ability to listen and the handlers ability to control. At The BIG Sheep our visitors enjoy the shepherds entertaining demonstration where there are no set rules for judges and literally anything could happen.
