The BC Stock Dog Association was formed more than 30 years ago to promote the ability of the working stock dog on ranches and farm through training, demonstrations, trial competitions, and education of the public.

Through clinics and demonstrations annually held throughout the province, education is provided for everyone from beginner to experienced.

Trials are also held throughout British Columbia, providing stock dogs and their handlers an opportunity to showcase their skills on herding sheep and cattle thru courses designed to simulate everyday work on the farm.

Imagine a partner that can move livestock from pasture to pen while you wait at the gate and then assist you with sorting. Then at the end of the day, this well-trained and skillfully handled canine partner integrates itself as a welcome member of the family
