About Us

The NSW Yard Dog Association was established in October 1986 to showcase excellence in the working dog by demonstrating the benefits of good sheep work by a dog within the confines of the yard.
Good sheep work being efficient, safe and constructive to the end result.
In other words, it should, as much as is practical, represent real work and demonstrate the highest levels of stockmanship.

Change of Trial Dates

Please let the Secretary know as soon as possible so we can keep the website up to date and save time on administration work.
If the reason is that there is no one to do all the hard work to organise it – maybe think about putting a call for help up here on the website.
