The Wessex Sheepdog Society
Further details will appear here soon.
We run three two-day trials during the season: Pond Field, Priors Dean, Manor Farm Didling and this year a two day trial at the South Downs Show.
The dates and an entry form for all our trials may be found on the Trials Diary page.
The South Downs Show
The sheepdog has worked the slopes of the South Downs for generations and the rolling hills make an ideal setting for sheep production. Beautifully herb flavoured meat is not the only benefit that their grazing offers because sheep are also important for biodiversity.
The South Downs Show is honored to be able to demonstrate the wonders of the working dog and to be joined by the Wessex Sheepdog Society who will be organising the first sheepdog trials to run here for about 10 years.
40 dogs are already signed up to compete over the Saturday and Sunday and it looks set to be a spectacle that many enthusiasts will be eager to travel to see.
Further details of the trial and the South Downs Show may be found HERE.
