The POST is the starting point for the Trail. The Competitor walks to towards the post and positions the dog and steps into the ring ready to start. When the bell rings the dog is CAST to the left or right to the head of the sheep. The dog should move into a position of control the sheep and then bring them is a steady manner and a direct a line as possible to the post where the competitor is standing. In the Trans Tasman the sheep must have passed around the Competitor on the left hand side before the competitor can set off towards the GAP.
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.
