O’Sullivans Australian Yard Dog Championships

The National Yard Dog Championships are an annual event held throughout Australia each year, with 2017 being Victoria’s turn.

We are very fortunate to host the event at Bendigo throughout the Sheep and Wool Show.

On display over the three days will be the very best of the nations working yard dogs and their handlers to compete in this prestigious event and vie for approx $10,000 worth of prize money and the honour of being crowned the National Yard Dog Champion for 2017.

Situated on the main arena with ample seating, come and be part of the drama as the competition builds to the climax of the final held on Sunday afternoon to determine the O’Sullivans Transport Australian Yard Dog Champion for 2017.
