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 Albany to Ballidu. The trials range from arena trials (3 sheep) to the more farm based yard and utility trials.

Trialling sheepdogs in WA 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 connection to agriculture, but all share a passion for the great working Kelpies and Border Collies in a sport that is steeped in history.

So sit back and have a browse. This site will be updated with trial dates and results, upcoming events and other relevent information.


Any of the WAWSDA members will be happy to assist with  information on sheep dogs, training and trialling that you can't find elsewhere. See the "Contact Us" page as a good place to start asking questions.
