At our farm the dogs are used as important help in many different daily situations for the management of the sheep : to check animals at pasture, rotating the flock to new grazing, shearing and others health treatments…

Apart of these daily duties our dogs are also trained to compete in sheepdog trials, where handlers and dogs have to complete a course that represents a standardisation of their daily work. These events help with the selection and breeding of the Border Collie for its original purpose namely of working sheep, it also helps to raise the standard of training of the dogs which in turn also improves the efficiency of the daily work on the farm.
