2019 National Sheep Dog Finals
September 10 - September 15
USBCHA National Sheepdog Finals
Strang Ranch in Carbondale, Colorado | September 10-15 2019 | Schedule and Additional Info
This six day event will include a food and craft fair as well as competition for 225 pre-qualified dog and handler teams. Only the best teams make the cut to compete for over $40,000!
The 2019 USBCHA National Sheepdog Finals is a first rate herding competition and will showcase land conservation, stewardship, and the region’s ranching heritage. There will also be a fantastic food and craft fair with numerous vendors and we will be bringing back the very popular “doggie demos” and “Lamb Cook off” over the weekend.
After a year of trialing around the country, the top 150 open dog and handler teams in North America will earn the right to compete in the 2019 USBCHA National Sheepdog Finals.
The Nursery dogs will be dogs under 36 months of age who have won or placed in enough trials to have qualified for the right to compete for the title of National Nursery Champion. These handlers and their dogs represent the best that the United States and Canada have to offer in terms of stockmanship and stock dog handling.
Spectators will have a rare opportunity to observe seasoned veterans in the Open Class, as well as the finest of our young prospects in the Nursery Class.
PLEASE LEAVE YOUR PETS AT HOME AND LEAVE THE HERDING TO THE PROFESSIONALS!
