Dean Sheepdog Trials – Old Sniff Classic

Community Event

10 Oct 2021 Annual Event

The annual Dean Sheepdog Trials is a spectacle of dog handling excellence.

The stars of the show man-oeuvre three sheep around a course on the command of their handlers, while being judged on time and ability.

The full day event is a priority event for the dog handlers – so a quality field is assured. National, state and local champions are among the field of 40, with some travelling from inter-state. Spectators can chat to the handlers and learn the finer points of the sport.

Good old fashioned country cooking is available all day from the canteen, and a vintage machinery display is sure to delight.
