Hello and welcome to the Australian Sheep Dog Workers' Association Web site!
I strongly encourage people from all walks of life and every corner of this vast country, who have an affinity with dogs and livestock, to look on their state websites for sheep dog trials in their area, to go along and become involved with the sport of sheep dog trialling.

care and handling.
