THE Scottish National Sheepdog Trials will be in North Ayrshire in just three weeks time.

Taking place at Portencross, from Thursday, August 2 to Saturday, August 4,it is set to be an exciting and competitive few days for the whole family to enjoy.

This three day event sees Scotland’s top 150 sheepdogs and handlers compete to claim a place in the top 15, who will represent Scotland at the 2018 International. It’s also the qualifying trial for the Brace competition, which sees handlers with two dogs compete against each other.

This is a tough and highly-skilled competition, so many congratulations to all those who have got this far and good luck to all those competing over the three days.

Kenny Donald, local chairman, said: “We are really looking forward to the Scottish National Sheepdog Trials this year. There is some stiff competition and this, combined with the atmosphere of the event, means that it’s certainly going to be a fun-filled few days for all the family.”
