The inaugural Australian Stock Dog Spectacular Futurity Sale was held in 2017 in Tamworth. 100 dogs were offered for sale and all were sold. Moving forward to year 3 of this prestigious sale, both the 2019 ASDS Open Working Dog Sale and Futurity Sale are expected to attract high quality dogs in high numbers.
The 2019 Australian Stock Dog Spectacular Sales will be held on Sunday 3rd November.
The 2019 Futurity Sale is open to all pups between 4 and 12 months of age as of the 1st October 2019. All pups will be microchipped and DNA sampled for future identification if necessary.
It is suggested pups over 6 months of age wear muzzles, while working sheep. If a muzzle is not worn and the dog bites a sheep, the dog will be stopped working immediately. All dogs will be able to be demonstrated on either sheep or cattle, while being sold.
All pups sold at the through the Futurity sale will be eligible to compete in any of next futurity trials, and will be in the running for the $5000 Victor Moar Memorial Vendor Incentive in the 2020 Cow Dog Futurity.
A pup purchased through the sale is eligible to compete in the futurities, even if it has been resold.
Nominations for sale entries will open on the 1st of August.
A printed and online catalogue will be available at the close of nominations.
