The calendar indicated it was fall, and the weather reaffirmed it. Perfect weather for dogs and sheep though. It was wonderful to be back in Canada and visit with friends I hadn’t seen in quite a while.
For many sheepdog herding enthusiasts, the trialing points year goes from August 1 - July 31 as per the USBCHA calendar. In Ontario, the Kingston Sheepdog Trial usually starts off that new trialing season.
