In Sheepdog Trials, handlers have their dogs herd sheep through a series of gates and into a pen, using only voice and whistle commands to guide the dogs. Points are awarded based on how well the dog and their handler complete several phases of competition.
You can bring your dog to the festival (but not to compete.)
There will be other dog demonstrations and organizations, merchants, food trucks, pet adoptions and more.
