Required Information for entry
Course plan map
HCT Leg 1 under judge A
Test is primarily educational, tester must be flexible and supportive, the chance to show off your the first step towards a fully trained working sheepdog.
The dog must have previous training to stop and recall with distractions.
The tester may handle, help the handler or watch the handler working the dog but must stay close to avoid creating a double focus for sheep and dog. A light stick safe from points or sharp edges may be used with placcy bag or bottle on end to guide dog and sheep.
The owner/ handler bring dog in on a lead.
First exercise… dog walked round edges of pen encouraging stock to stay in the middle of the area. Before dropping/removing the lead the dog should demonstrate a stop ( in any position) and a recall. The line should not be used to enforce any of these behaviours. To guide the dog in tricky moves - sheep stuck on fence - it may be guided by the collar into a better position
The test can be passed towing the line, but not held.
Once dog is free the handler and tester must move around allowing the dog to show it’s style of work, eliciting circling and controlling movements from the dog. Time given once the dog begins to show working moves to completion of the test will be three to five minutes, not more than ten mins. overall.
HCT 2nd Leg under judge B
The dog is to be handled by owner or designated handler.
Tester to be just inside/just outside to assist if necessary
Dog is brought in on lead positioned in a stay by handler, lead to be removed.
The handler may change position in relation to stock or send dog from his side after a brief pause.
The pair should then be seen to move around the area controlling the sheep in various manoeuvres, simple straight lines plus changes of direction. At some point probably at the end of the test the dog should show a stop in any position and a recall from the stop.
This a score sheet so you can see what and how the tests are judged!
JHD Legs 1 and 2, under two different judges
The stock to be at the top end of the paddock.
The handler may carry a crook or light stock stick
The dog brought in on a lead no closer than15 foot from the sheep.
Off lead, maintain Stop in any position before asked either to gather or drive the stock.
Handler should base the decision on the reactions of the stock relative to the course. The centre hurdles can be taken either before or after the two corner panels, which can be taken from either direction.
You need to take all 3 obstacles to pass.
Test is complete once the gate out of the area is closed behind the sheep; 10 mins is allocated but dogs roughing up stock or showing lack of progress will be asked off in 5 mins.
All the exercises must receive Good or Fair for a pass.
