What activities can I do with my herding dog?

Herding Trials

Herding breeds like Border Collies, Australian Shepherds, and Shetland Sheepdogs are ideal candidates to participate in trials for the type of work that they were meant to do – herding trials. Depending on the club that you decide to participate in, rules will vary. However, activities typically include training your canine to herd stock from a pen and guide the herd through an obstacle course. It's a great way for energetic canines to use some of their natural instinct.
