Working Dog Demonstration
The Working Dog Demonstration has always been popular at the Penrith Show.
Stock dogs are used on farms for all types of stock handling including working cattle, sheep, goats and even poultry.
There are many different breeds of dogs used to handle stock but the most prominent being Collies or Kelpies.
For the demonstration at the show short haired Collies based on New Zealand blood lines are used for their ability to work rather than their type or colour.
During the demonstration you will see a brief demonstration of the dogs natural instinct and how these instincts are modified in order to train the dog to handle stock.
Part of the demonstration will be to try and work some ducks around various obstacles.
We would like to thank the sponsors of this year’s demonstration for their support.
