The annual Dean Sheepdog Trials is a spectacle of dog handling excellence. The stars of the show man-oeuvre three sheep around a course on the command of their handlers, while being judged on time and ability. The full day event is a priority event for the dog handlers - so a quality field is assured. National, state and local champions are among the field of 40, with some travelling from inter-state. Spectators can chat to the handlers and learn the finer points of the sport. Good old fashioned country cooking is available all day from the canteen, and a vintage machinery display is sure to delight.
