About ASDS

The Australian Stock Dog Spectacular was the dream of a small group of passionate individuals who aspired to showcase the Australian working dog and it’s versatility and promote the breeding, training and welfare of these iconic dogs on an international stage.

The first Australian Stock Dog Spectacular was held in 2017 in Tamworth, NSW in the form of an annual dog sale and trial bringing the this dream to life

Since its inaugural event at the World Class Australian Equine and Livestock Events Centre (AELEC) in 2017, The Australian Stock Dog Spectacular (ASDS) has grown from strength to strength becoming the largest and most prestigious event of its kind.

"Bred to work, trained to trial."

The purpose of the Australian Stock Dog Spectacular is to promote the breeding, training and welfare of all Australian stock dogs through an annual sale and trial.
