At the end of the DRIVE is the free working area 10 metres from the MALTESE CROSS. Here the fun really begins, if the Competitor has only ever worked under Australian Rules. In this area the Competitor may move about to assist and work their dog in completing the MALTESE COSS. It must be entered and exited from the direction of the GAP, then entered and exited in the direction of the BRIDGE. Plenty of scope for problems here, where do the Kiwis come up with these ideas?
Our Sheepdog club is for working sheepdog breeds and hold regular training days to assist people with training their dogs. We also organise and run the Trans Tasman Trial at Bungendore.
