World Sheep Dog Trial
The World Sheep Dog Trial is held once every three years. Handlers from countries around the world come together to compete for the title of World Champion. The next World Trial will be heldJuly 13-17 in The Netherlands. More information will be posted as news comes from the ISDS. We will have an "expression of interest" form available for handlers interested in entering the World Trials as we receive more information from the ISDS and it will be due on August 1, 2016, the same date as National Finals entries are due. Please check back for more information.
Team members will be selected using USBCHA qualifying points from the 2015 and 2016 point years. The top applicant from each USBCHA District in the USA (therefore excluding District 9, and 10) will be offered a place on the team (XX places) with the remaining places (XX7 places) awarded to the second highest point earner in each district in descending order of points earned. We were allotted 11 spots in 2014. At this point, we do not know how many places we will be allotted for the 2017 World Trial.
