Welcome to westaustralianworkingsheepdogs.com.au
A web site that is designed to showcase sheep dog trialling in W.A.
Sheepdog trialling in W.A. is very much alive and well with an ever increasing number of folks joining our sport.
The West Australian working sheep dog association (WAWSDA) is made up of six affiliated clubs which are spread across the state. These clubs hold sheep dog trials as wide spread as Esperance to Ballidu.
The trials range from arena trials (3 sheep) to the more farm based yard and utility trials.
Trialling sheepdogs in W.A. has a long proud history with the first association trial held in 1936 and since then has grown from one trial a year to a dozen or more with entries adding up to over 200 at some trials.
Sheep dog trialling is a great pastime. It gets you out and about travelling this wonderful state with a great bunch of people.
Whilst the bulk of the members are involved in the farming industry, many are town or city based with very little connections to agriculture. But we all share a passion for our great working Kelpies and Border Collies in a sport that is steeped in history.
So sit back and have a browse. We will keep this site updated with trial dates and results, upcoming events and other relevent information.
Anybody chasing information on trialling that they can't find elsewhere please contact the State Secretary Jenny Atherton you will find her number in club contacts
Cheers and thanks for looking
