A sheepdog trial (also known as a herding event, a stock dog trial or simply a dog trial) is a competitive dog sport in which herding dogs move sheep around a field, fences, gates, or enclosures as directed by their handlers. They bring the sheep to their handler through certain gates, pen them in an enclosure, separate out certain ones, and other maneuvers, all done “long distance” through voice, hand, whistle, or other commands
from their handlers. It is truly amazing to watch these dogs work!
Junction has Handlers and their Dogs gather for this event from all over the United States and Canada.
