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 ability and versatility and promote the breeding, training and welfare of these iconic dogs on an international stage.
The first Australian Stock Dog Spectacular Sale was held in 2017 in Tamworth, with a 100 dogs offered for sale and sold on this day, making for a 100% clearance at the inaugural sale. 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 ASDS Open Working Stock Dog Sale is open to all working stock dogs, either cattle dogs, 3 sheep dogs or yard dogs. All dogs will be able to be demonstrated on either sheep or cattle, while being sold.
For the welfare of our stock, 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.
The 2019 ASDS Open Stock Dog sale is a perfect opportunity to sell or purchase a going dog.
Nominations for the 2019 ASDS Open Working Dog sale is August 1st 2019.
A printed and online catalogue will be available prior to the sale.
