The purpose of herding trial program is to preserve and develop the herding skills inherent in the herding breeds and to demonstrate that they can perform the useful functions for which they were originally bred. Although herding trials are artificial simulations of pastoral or farm situations, they are standardized tests to measure and develop the characteristics of the herding breeds. White shepherds are fantastic natural herding dogs and many white shepherd owners and their owners perform in herding events.
Examples of our breed herding:
Diana Updike's "Peebles" herding sheep
Betty tanner's "Quest" herding sheep
Arleen ravanelli's "shira" herding goats
miranda reeves herding goats with her white shepherd
