National Trials are held by the International Sheepdog Society and a supporting committee annually each summer in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
During the three days of the National Singles Trials, handlers will run 150 dogs over the course. Each handler can enter a maximum of three dogs, but only two of these may run, the third being an ‘alternate’ dog who may be substituted for one of the two. A maximum of nine entries are accepted for each National Brace (Doubles) competition. The handler’s aim is to gain a place in their National Team to represent their Nation at the Society’s annual International Trial. Each National Singles Team has fifteen places and one reserve place, and the brace team consists of the first two prize winners, so competition is fierce.
