Herding

Herding dogs have long been an important component to the livestock industry throughout the world and in modern times we are seeing an increased interest in herding on the part of individuals who are not involved with livestock on a daily basis but who are interested in working with their dogs and helping preserve the talents and abilities of the many herding breeds. Competitive herding trials are increasing in number and variety across the country. These competitions mimic different aspects of practical farm work performed by shepherds and their dogs. The American Border Collie Association has produced an excellent video to explain the different components of a modern sheep dog competition.
