1981 New Zealand sheep dog trial video

Recommended Posts

In case any of us are isolated at home and want to fill a few minutes watching some sheep dog trialling, I came across this video of an old (1981) sheep dog trial from New Zealand.

Interestingly, the first two dogs are New Zealand Huntaway dogs, who have, um, a very different style of herding than I am used to seeing.

And I then went down a bit of a rabbit hole and found another video on the site that may be interesting

(Quote from site) This doco looks at the relationship between dogs and shepherds in Kiwi sheep farming. It covers the history of dog and man, and reveals Dog Show-worthy secrets behind the dogs' training and personalities, from ‘heading dogs' who stare sheep (and geese!) "into submission" to the "loudmouth" ‘huntaways' who drive flocks on vast high country stations.

Hope everyone here is staying safe!
